A Helping Hand

I needed to really take my mind of things after a weekend with a few family drama's, so I picked a couple of challenges to have a go at. I made some more of these flowers, I love doing them, I use two Poinsettia stamps in different sizes, then ink them with distress inks, and on the large add a daisy punch to the centre. A couple of gems and some stickles and the job's a good 'un.

I have used my favourite of all Whiff Of Joy Stamps, so reminds me of my daughter Jodie, when she's not in a strop and doesn't mind helping me with the dishes Lol!

So here's the challenges I have decided to join in with:-
1. Simon Says Stamp - Coffee & Cream
2. Crafts & Me - Things Wityh Wings
3. Fab 'N' Funky - challenge # 61 - Recipe (1 image, 2 Embellies - flowers and a ticket, 3 papers)
4. Card Makin' Mama's - challenge # 15 - Happy birthday (I have just found this challenge blog)

Stamps - WOJ Melinda helping Angel. Polkadoodles Poinsettia's,
Papers - My Minds Eye, Papermania Regency, Dovecraft Sugar & Spice,
Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks,
Tools - Nesties, daisy punch, Cuttlebug, ebossing leaf punch,
Embellishments - button, ticket, gems, stickles, ribbon,

I will be back tomorrow with a Design team creation for Die Cut Dreams, thank you for popping by.
Have a good week.
Happy crafting
