Secret Crafters - Holidays!

I'm doing a happy dance for the weekend! Even though it's raining, I'm not at work, so it's not all bad, LOL!!! Even better news is that it's time for another Secret Crafters Challenge, set this week by lovely Helen. She has chosen a theme of


This Kraftin Kimmie stamp is called Florence & I think she's fab!. I coloured her with Distress Inks & the papers are MME. I wanted to keep ths really simple, just added a heart shaped connecter from Crafty Emmas
, ribbon & the adhesive pearls.

When I asked my boys, independently of one another who Florence reminded them of, they both said my sister - WRONG answer!!! At least not the one I was hoping for. They both said my hair was a lot curlier & then darling hubby chipped in with '& greyer'! Do you see what I have to put up with?!!!

Oh well! I hope you'll now pop on over to the Secret Crafters blog to see the fab creations of my awesome D-Teamies! Before you go these are the challenges I am entering with this card.

 At Papertake Weekly, things are getting Hot, Hot, Hot! And at Bunny Zoes, the theme is 'Fun in the Sun'.

At Creative Inspirations, there's 'No Flowers Allowed'.

Big waves to my old D-Teamies at Crafts 4 Eternity. They have a 3-2-1 challenge this week. I've used 3 adhesive pearls, 2 design papers & 1 charm.

Bearly Mine Designs & Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Finally, one of my favourite challenges that I don't enter very often is Stamptacular Sunday. I have based my card on their fab sketch this week. I tried to make the top & bottom layers represent the sun/sky & the sand.

So there you go. Thanks so much for looking.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
