Bright & Cheerful

This week at Oldie But A Goodie it's our lovely Lisa Jane's turn to choose the theme, and Lisa wants us to banish the winter blues and do something "Bright & Cheerful". Don't forget to use a stamp older than 6 months and no Digi's please. And most of all please join in and have fun!
The prize for this week is this lovely Magnolia stamp:-

I have used a Sarah Kay image from Sir stampalot, you can find here, she is so great to colour and I just think she's beautiful. I also have had some new papers from Sir Stampalot too which I have used on this creation, and you can find them here, now these are really beautiful papers. I have just got a new X-Cut border punch and embossing leaf punch, so had to try them out on my card.

I have also learnt over the last couple of days to watermark my work, Christine thank you for the easy walk through and also to Debs.

This is also for the following challenges:-
1. Truly Scrumptious - challenge 48 - Sketch + Dreaming Of Summer (I have rotated the sketch)
2. Let's Ink It Up - challenge # 8 - Anything Goes
3. Creative Inspirations - challenge 50 - Something new on your project (New Papers, New Border punch & New embossing leaf punch)
4. Cupcake Crafts - #124 - Something New (New Papers, New border punch & new embossing Leaf punch)

Stamps - Sarah Kay Spring Blossoms,
Papers - Kaiser craft Devonshire collection,
Colouring Mediums - Promarkers,
Tools - Cuttlebug, Nesties, order punch, Embossin leaf punch,
Embellishments - ribbon, stickles, gems, flowers,

Hope your all having a good week, thank you for dropping by.
Happy crafting
