Happy Mail

Hello there and happy May to you all - I know I'm a day late - but I forgot all about it yesterday!!!! What am I like?

Well todays post is inspired by many things - I recently purchased some new crafty individuals background papers and they arrived yesterday - well I just adore them so they needed to be used - then there was a bag of Tilda stamps I bought from the very wonderful Squirrel -thanks again!!! Then there was a challenge at A little bit Crafty involving kraft and finally - the happy mail challenge at simon says stamp - so I made a just because card ....




I've coloured Tilda with promarkers and distressed around the edge of the diecut with tumbled glass DI. The dress is paperpieced from the fabulous crafty individuals papers. The flowers are mostly from WOC and the lace is from the Ribbon Girl. The banner die is by dienamics and is part of what I won when I was lucky enough to scoop £10 to spend at quixotic paperie on the Totally Gorjuss site - thankyou xx The vase and flower and oval dies are all spellbinders. The lace beind is also from the ribbon girl.

I'd like to enter my happy mail card into the following challenges:

ribbongirls: Magnolia only - add a diecut
craftsandmechallenges: Floral frenzy
A little bit crafty paulaholifieldcrafts: Kraft it
