The Stampman and a Toddle Waddle

Late again!  I'm being plagued by headaches lately, not full blown ones, just the dull ones that refuse to budge and the PC makes them worse so not been on much.  Perhaps I should have an eye test?
Anyway I should have posted this on Friday but my head has been sooooo sore my blogging mojo disappeared so sorry for the delay!

The challenge this fortnight at The Stampman is a really fun one and is a bingo card - you have a box of options and can choose any straight or diagonal line so there's lots of options to choose from!  I went for the top straight line using Blue, embossing powder and stitches.
For this I used one of the new Scalloped Circle framie stamps by The Stampman.  These fit perfectly into the corresponding nestability dies.  Its stamped and embossed with moonglow midnight teal and coloured with my 2 favourite colours broken china and spun sugar distress stains.  I added some punched butterflies and mounted on coredinations black magic card.

Do pop over this fortnight to The Stampman and have a go at this fab challenge!

Kids did a sponsored toddle waddle on friday with a teddy bears picnic, the weather was looking dodgy but rain stayed off all morning yay!  They really enjoyed it and got a medal at the end so I had Molly shouting "I'm a winner" all weekend lol!

A fabulous card Vix, beautiful colours together and great design.
I had headaches earlier in the year that lasted a couple of months. I do have new glasses but I am not sure they cured my headache problem, I wonder if it is a virus of some sort.
Love your photos, two gorgeous girls.
Hope you have a good week.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
