SFTW - It's Launch Day wooo hooo!!!!!

Yay we have lift off. The Launch of Stampin for the Weekend is finally here, and boy oh boy have all us DT girls been so excited for this day. I do hope you will be able to take part in our first challenge. The candy that is on offer has been so generously donated by Kimmi and Donna, I'd like to take this opportunity in thanking both these amazing ladies for all the hard work they have put into organising this fantstic new challenge blog, not to mention the wonderful candy they have donated and wow!! what a scrummy load of candy it is too, for more details of what you could win, just pop over to Stampin for the Weekends blog where you will see a detailed list.

So here goes then, for our first challenge which is entitled "Dusk to Dawn" we would love you to make a card or any project of your choice with the colour scheme of


Here is the card that I have made, the yellow background paper is a freebie download from the amazingly talented and very generous Summer, I've used SU "Bundle of Joy" stamp set to create the stars and moon backing. The gorgeous Alota image has been paper pieced with another freebie paper from Cuddly Buddly, also used Copics to colour the rest of the image. SU five petal flower punch and Ek success retro flower punch. The cutie lil charm is from The Hobby House.

The rest of the DT girls, Donna, Kimmi, Nicola, Jen, Amy, Claire, Ida, Pops and Vanya have created some truly wonderful projects for our first challenge, so why not pop over and check out their creations for yourself. We are all really looking forward to you taking part in SFTW and visiting your blogs to see what creations you come up with.

have fun and good luck
