Oops I did it again

So I was having a lovely afternoon, mooching around looking at some blogs and saw that Stamp with us, a fantastic Stampin Up challenge site, had a great challenge to use 2 x ribbons, 1 x flower, 1 x button and 1 x patterned paper. This sounded like fun and proceeded to have a go producing, what I thought was quite a nice little card.

Hours later, after photographing and editing it dawned on me that I had got a bit carried away with the 1 x patterned paper bit. At first I thought ok so it's 2, but it is the same colour maybe I can get away with it until I realised that I have in fact used 3 x pattered paper. I was doing so well that in the first 5 minutes of making it I had to pull off brads and replace them with punched out card because of the challenge. I must be some sort of non conformist deep down ( I did try to stick to the challenge, honest guv' lol).

A special mention goes out today for this little cherub, Evee who lights up any room she is in and is such a joy to have as a niece. It's her 1st birthday today - Happy Birthday sweetness from your Auntie Em, Uncle Mike and big boy cousin Samuel - we love you with all our hearts xxxxx

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx
