Ahoy there .........

Today we have 2 new digi stamps being released over at the Jellypark store and the DT have created some fab projects to show them off.

I am showing off the pirate and dog on a boat digi stamp available at the store here

I coloured the image with my prisma pencils and created a charm by stamping and cutting out the anchor and attaching it to the twine bow with a jump ring.

Hop on over to the jellypark friends blog to check out all the DT inspiration with the new stamps and also check out the new challenge too :)

Warm heart :)

Good morning to you - Happy Friday :)

Today it is time for a new challenge over at Stampin' for the weekend and this fortnight our challenge for you is
Something Girly

Of course we have a fabulous sponsor as well 
Just click on the button above to be taken to their lovely store

For my card I used the girl & heart image from Jellypark and DP's from the MME Love me paper pad. The beautiful die is the Japanese garden lace oval from cheery Lynn and those lovely branches are in the same set. The little tag is a x-cut punch and I added a little "smile" sentiment from a crafters companion set I have. The other sentiment is one I made myself in MS word. 
Then I just added a triple bow with some buttons and done !
