A happy hello!

Good morning peeps! As you can see, both me and my compy (a.k.a. the Evil Machine) survived the system re-install! Wahoo!
Mind you, there were some major obstacles along the way, but after an armed interference it decided that there's no winning with me... *wink*

I'm happy to finally be able to share with you my weekend's worth stuff (not much of it, but two is still a good count, considering that more often than not there would be none...), AND to share wonderful news, that Stacey awarded me with a Show Stopper!! Me happy! :)
Click on the badge to see which card of mine was picked.

With several cards also being CAS favourites at SCS this week, I couldn't posibly have a better morning :)

Enough of the blabber though, let's see what I've got for you today...
We've got a fantastic sketch to play with at Card Patterns this week, and an awesome sponsor too! The sponsor this week is The Stamping Boutique:

The prize for this week is a choice of 5 digis or 3 rubber stamps - how cool is that?! Here's a sampler of some of the rubber stamps they offer:

Looks like fun? Click the sketch picture below to play along!

Here's my sample, using the "Pantry Shelf" digi stamp. I loved the homey, vintage look of it, and so I decided to give my card a warm, shabby feel to compliment it. It would be a perfect addition to a nice gift jar of a home made strawberry marmalade... yummmm!

Supplies: cardstock: Quill; paper: TRS Trading Group; image (digital): The stamping Boutique; watercolour pencils: Belgrave; blender pen; sewing machine; ink: ColorBox Blush Rose; button, string: stash. The sentiment is also a print out

Now, here are the weekend's creations.
This one's made for the Valentine SFYTT:

Supplies: cardstock: Quill; papers & letter, shape cut-outs: Kaisercraft; sewing machine; star punch: Kaszazz; black pen (the writing is mine)

...and the one below uses the lovely colours of ColourQ chalenge #19, and Pals Paper Arts sketch (PPA29):

Supplies: cardstock: Quill; papers: Kaisercraft;Cuttlebug machine & Swiss Dots embossing folder; rub-ons: Fynmark; string & button: stash

I think I'm addicted to the marriage of string & button.... even better when it comes with a ribbon too! ;)
I'll see you later today (I'll do my best...), thanks so much for stopping by and commenting! *mwah*
