Just for you at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping challenges

Good morning (if a Monday morning can be good lol), I seem to have blinked and missed the weekend, I can't believe I'm back at work today. I'd much rather stay at home with my fur babies and craft but needs must I suppose. We've got a new challenge at Flonzcraft Vintage Stamping Challenges and I have chosen our theme this month, I picked 'Just for you' so its time to make something for yourself! We always seem to be making cards and stuff for other people so I thought this would be a fun challenge theme. As always our generous sponsor Flonzcraft have a generous $20 voucher for our lucky winner and of course there is always the honour of the 'Highly Desirables' badge so I do hope you're going to play along.

I've altered a little magnetic notebook for my DT project, I made one for my MIL at Christmas so this was a good excuse to make one for myself and to use some pretty spring colours too. The stamp is, of course from Flonzcraft, coloured with Graph'It Markers and I've paper pieced her dress. The papers and diecut flowers are all from Craftwork Cards, the papers have been distressed with a little vintage photo distress ink and a craft knife.

To finish off i've stamped some bunting using freebie stamps from a magazine and added die cuts, lace, ribbon and pearls

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
ABC: G is for girls
Addicted to stamps: lace and pearls
Allsorts: spring is coming
Dream Valley: vintage
The Craft Garden: pastel colours

Thanks for popping by today, hope to see you again soon
