Charisma Cardz - Summer!

Good Morning!
Yesterday I had some fantastic news ... after submitting a photo of my craft area the store STORAGE4CRAFTS used a photo of my desk area on their FB page which resulted in me winning a £10 Voucher from them!!! There's a link to the post HERE if you fancy a peek :)

Well as you heard yesterday I finally got my hands on my Summer Distress Inks on Tuesday and couldn't wait to have a play ...


I have to admit that I wan't too sure if the 3 colours would work as well together as the other limited edition sets but thankfully that doubt flew straight out the window when I started using them! Mind you I say as well as the others but irritatingly I can't seem to be able to get my hands on the Fall Inks anymore until they are released again which is bugging me! lol

Today's card is for our new challenge over at CHARISMA CARDZ which is Summer and of course you can see why I wanted to use these inks for today's card now due to the theme!

I'd like to enter this into the challenges at:
STAMPIN' FOR THE WEEKEND - BUGS AND BUTTERFLIES
WOC - ANYTHING GOES
CUTE CARD THURSDAY - HERE COMES SUMMER!




INGREDIENTS -
Tim Holtz Stamps - 'Papillon' & 'Urban Tapestry'
Pb Stamped Sentiment
Nesties
Flowers from WOC
Ribbon from my stash


INKS USED -
Distress Ink - Pumice Stone, Summer Limited Edition Set

Lastly I thought I better share a photo of my recent crafty splurge ... I know I said I was cutting down for a while but you know how tempting it can be so I'm sure I'm not the only one lol


I hope you will pop by tomorrow where I will be sharing some even more fantastic news with you all ;)
Thanks for popping by!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
