Couple of challenges

Helloooo!  Got a couple to share today, been run off my feet the last week as both kids were sick and I've got well I dont know but my ears are ringing and I feel dizzy all the time so hopefully we'll all be right as rain soon as its the Mookins 3rd birthday on Friday so hoping for a nice weekend so she can play in the new house we got her.  She absolutely loves houses so I'm sure it will be well loved!

Having problems with pics so finding a way round it so addng them via photobucket!

First up its a new challenge over at Bearly Mine and this fortnight the theme is "Summertime"  For this I've been itching to use the bold print with the flowers on from the spring blossoms set coupled with the spots one from the spring mix set and the very summery gingham.
I've used an old Tilda stamp for this coloured with promarkers with glitter glue on the stars.

Also sharing this one which is for Crafty Cardmakers - The Spotlight Challenge and is or the theme "Sentimental"
For this I stamped and embossed a hero arts sentiment then cut out an oval shape (I dont have oval nesties so its a stencil)  I've framed it with tapestry stamps, I do love those, took me a while to get them to look as nice as the samples in the shops mind but persevere lol!  Kept this quite simple with some crystal sticky gems :)
