Right where you should be x

Good morning I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend.

I had a lazy Saturday afternoon yesterday sitting on the sofa with the laptop on my knee hopping around blogland looking at some of my fav challenge sites and deciding which I would join in with first !

Then after dinner when the kids were in their pj's I got out my crafting scraps drawer (I am determined to reduce it's size before I buy anymore papers !!) and got started.

I fell in love with this sketch over at sketch Saturday so that was my starting point.

I also liked the recipe over at creatalicious this month which is Love, a punched border, ribbon, flowers & bling - mmmmm tasty combination hey ?!

I have had this Ippity sentiment stamp for months and months but never used it so I was pleased to dig it out and get it inked up. I also used this crown stamp, also had this one a while without it being used, it is from MME. Have you noticed the "xoxo" stamp in the bottom right corner ? It is from my clearly hand stamped set from crafters companion - I adore this little set.

My border punch I bought secondhand this week from ebay at a bargain price (yay! love a bargain). The lovely ribbon and swirls were in my Christmas craft box from my Mum & Dad (Mwah - if you are reading this Mum x) and the little roses are from my craft cupboard.

I am afraid that I can't tell you what the DP is as it is a scrap - but isn't it yummy ?!

I am very pleased with the end result especially as I got it finished then realised that I hadn't added flowers so the roses were added at the last moment - and I love them !

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;
