phew, managed to get my entry done last night.
This week’s was a to do a large monogram of your name. Obviously then, mine was a “K”. I did wonder what I’d use it for then it occured that as it’s Karen’s birthday tomorrow, I will add it to her flowers (I used the same stamps as for her card).
Check out the challenge over at their Cyberblog (there a link in my side bar), as there’s blog candy up for grabs, and you’ve still got a few hours to get it done.

- Cut the 12×12 piece of cardstock in half, and score down the middle of one of the pieces to create a 6×6 card.
- With Palette Noir ink stamp the leaf stem around the card.
- Cut a piece of the white cardstock to 4×4 and stamp the 3-step heart in the Bashful Blue, Red Magic and Palette Noir ink.
- Fill in some of the gaps with the small flower image using Certainly Celery ink. Ticket Punch all four corners.
- Matt the white piece on to 4.5×4.5 piece of black cardstock and Ticket Punch the Corners.
- Then position it slightly towards the upper lefthand side of the card (but not too high).
- With the Wizard machine, and using the middle die, cut out a tag, and edge with the Red Magic dewdrop.
- Stamp “Thanks so much” in Certainly Celery on this. I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get the correct placement.
- Cut a small piece of the green gingham ribbon, and mount underneath where the flower will go.
- Punch a hole in the tag, and mount the flower (secured with the large brad.
- Add Leaf Green Pearlidoodles to the centres of the stamped flowers, and then drop it on the floor to squash them!

I managed to hop over to see Caz and her adorable boys yesterday afternoon, and as usual had a smashing time, and came away with some lovely stamped bits and pieces. Also a very large box of SU bits, two month’s worth of SU Club and some extra sets.
I have to say that Guy seemed a little shocked as I started to cut them out at the sheer number, and didn’t seem very convinced by the 2 month’s worth argument I put forward!
