Stampin for the Weekend is back...yay!!!!!!

Due to Donna's ill health and the tragic death of Kimmi's brother, SFTW was put on hold but I am so glad to tell you all that our lovely Stampin for the Weekend challenge blog is back to our usual Friday slot. So this week theme is a colour challenge.  We'd like you to create a project using the colours


Our sponsor Heidi from Simon Says Stamp has once again very generously donated a $25 gift token for the lucky winner to spend.

We have two fabby guest designers this week, Sue and Jerusha have created the most gorgeous cards, thank you ladies for joining us at SFTW

So here's my lil card.  D'ya know I received my Manga stamps over a month ago and what with one thing and another I've not had chance to ink them up, apart from this one, the other two are still in their sealed packs....I love these Basic Grey "mellow" papers so appropriate for this weeks colour challenge. The edges have been distressed, then machine sewn. The sentiment is Stampin Up , corner punch with some pearly gems which Michelle kindly gave me as a birthday present along with a huge bundle of delish crafting goodies, thank you again Michelle for your wonderful present. 

This is the first card I have made in almost three weeks, my craft room has well and truly been neglected, it's was really hard to get back into the swing of things, so to speak but I hope to be back soon with some more cards, as I still have some orders to make.

Don't forget to check out my lovely SFTW teamies creations, they've all come up trumps again this week, well done girlies.  Unfortunately Donna is still poorly, (I hope you make a speedy recovery sweetie and take time out for yourself, you deserve it chick).  I like to say a huge thank you to Kimmi for organising the return of Stampin for the Weekend, after all she has been through, this lady is a true inspiration to everyone..((((((HUGS)))))))

Well my fab lil hubby is the BIG 40 today, (happy birthday chunk), so lots of celebrations going on today and over the weekend, I just can't believe he's 40...I'd better be careful cos he'll only get me back next!!!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, lots of love 'n' crafty hugs xx vicki xx
