Ohhhh So Trendy :)

Hi lovely peeps and hope you are all OK today.

I’m still sniffing and snotting like nobody's business (ugh, too much info there possibly!!) but I think that perhaps the achy limbs are not as bad today even if the old throat is still quite painful!!! Before we get to the card, just to let you know that my winner from last week’s Put A Stamp On It challenge will be announced later so please do keep checking. The winner of the $100 voucher will be announced on the challenge blog as well.

So time to head across the water and catch up with our friends over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and this week our challenge is ….

We're So TRENDY …

as this week we are using designs that are very much on trend at the moment…


      NEON                                                  HEXAGON                                           CHEVRON

....  so you just need to include these in your projects this week :)

As always, our lovely Heidi is giving away a fabulous …

… for one lucky winner to spend …

… this is what I did and this is just about as different as you could get for me, but I’m quite pleased with how it turned out :)

I’ll put linky pics at the end with all the stuff I used so you just need to click the pic and it should take you straight to the correct place in the shop.

I used chevrons and hexagons (no neon sadly) and the both are included in the DP. Not sure if I am stretching it a bit here but the stitching is also chevron shaped.

It is isn't it????

The star of the show – this lovely bloom.

I used 4 of the Prima Craftable blooms to maje it. I used one as a base and the other 3 I scrunched up and glued to the base flower before adding some Diamond Stickles.

I added a decorative brad and popped it onto a Kaiser White Flower Crochet Doily (these add a nice but of texture).

You can see the patterns on the DP in this pic :)
