Putting on the Ritz!

Hello there!

Happy Saturday! I hope you've had a fab week!

Sooooooo.....last weekend saw me and my lovely friends make our annual trip to the 1950s....well actually we went to Pontins at Camber Sands where Rhythm Riot was taking place. Three nights of 1950s music, dancing and fabulous clothes! We had a brilliant time - my sister and her hubby showed off their newly learnt jive moves!

With this recent dancing experience in mind.....and the challenge theme of "Let's Dance" this week over at Sweet Stampin I can't blame you for expecting to see a rock n roll or jiving themed card. But no - while looking for inspiration in my paper stash I got side tracked by a stack of 1920s themed paper that I've had for ages and never used.....until now.....

Yes, I left the jiving of the 1950s and zoomed back to the 1920s to do the Charleston! I love this fab digi stamp and have used it on lots of cards before....but for some reason not with this paper! 

For more dancing inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog and take a peek at the gorgeous DT cards. 

I have also managed to miss my blog post for Christmas at Sweet Stampin this month due to technical issues and working away from home too much! So I decided to add the card here.....our challenge over at Christmas at Sweet Stampin this month is.....STARS

For more starry inspiration pop by the Christmas at Sweet Stampin challenge blog!

I thought I would leave you with a little something from my weekend away....

Thanks for popping by today,

Autumn Leaves

Hello there,

Happy Saturday! I hope you've had a fab week.

As the nights are drawing in and the seasons are changing, we're back at Sweet Stampin with a very fitting challenge. This week we'd like to see your projects featuring/inspired by autumn leaves.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that I find this challenge.......well, rather challenging. Apparently I do not have many images featuring leaves within my stash (in fact I had none).....and so I was going to make a card inspired by the colours autumn leaves, but then I discovered this little cutie....

On first glance a squirrel wearing a dress, drinking tea might be an odd choice for a card. However, when I was a Brownie leader my name was Squirrel (there were already several "Owls" in the pack!) of course I drink a lot of tea!

As well as the leaves on the Squirrels dress, I have used autumn colours on my card.

To see more autumn leaves inspiration pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog to take a peek at the DT cards. While you're there you can read all about our fab sponsor this week....

If you're looking for something else to read this weekend, why not take a peek at my afternoon tea blog (I promise lots of drool inducing photos)
