Flowers and Candy Alerts

Good morning everyone. A very nice sunny day here today for the weekend yay. Today I'm just going to do just the necessary bit of housework ;) to then dedicate my afternoon for blog hopping. I've been so busy lately that I didn't have time for this but today I'll definitely be over to see you.

Anyway, onto my card for today and today it's time for another new challenge at Sweet Stampin'. The theme for this week is

I took quite some time to do my card today but I wanted to use some new dies that I have purchased, so I needed lots of experimenting. Yes I was very naughty, and my urge to get me some new goodies took over. Well, what happened was that some time ago I had won a $15 voucher from Simon Says and seeing all the goodies, I just couldn't resist topping up the voucher with some more extra monies!!

So here I used two of them, the PoppyStamps Grand Madison Window die and the Leafy Branch from CC Designs. The flower border at the bottom is Memory Box, which I already had and the sweet bird and birdhouse die-cuts were in a die-cut swap from Chrissy. Thank you Chrissy :)

I popped up the window and the flower border and I also stamped the lovely LOTV stamp three times to pop it up as well. I coloured the image with my promarkers, the faux curtain inside the window is a Martha Stewart border punch, the little blue butterflies is an X-Cut punch and the DP is from a Boofle paper pad. 

I really love how my card turned out today and can't believe I left this gorgeous stamp from LOTV waiting for me to use her for such a long time!

Sponsoring our challenge this week with two digis is
