Best Friends

Hi Everyone!
Over at Lili's Little Fairies this week the challenge is to use your favourite LOTV stamp - what a task this is!! Can you whittle down your favourites to just one? Well, I chose this lovely image of a little girl and her dog, sitting on a swing with not a care in the world and just content being 'good buddies'. Its a fab little stamp and I really enjoyed colouring it with my Promarkers.

A trip to a local garden centre with my friend last Friday saw us part with some cash in their craft shop and we both bought the new Papermania Portobello Road papers and these are what I used for my background. I then went very patriotic with a red, white and blue colour scheme and embellished the card with some gems, a Maya Road ribbon flower and some navy lace.
As the background is very dotty I'd also like to enter this card in the Simon Says Stamp and the Moving Along With The Times challenges which this week is to use 'Spots or Stripes' and the Secret Crafter challenge to use a blue colour scheme.

Thanks for looking and I'll be back soon with some more creations! I'm really enjoying scrapbooking at the mo so hope to have some layouts to share shortly.
Best wishes
