Stars and Stripes…




Hello everyone, all being well I shall be sunning myself in Zante when you read this post!

I don’t like to have to think about blogging when I’m away and don’t usually schedule posts, but when I saw the challenge for this week at Papertake Weekly I wanted to join in, it’s…


Stars and Stripes


I’ve had these lovely papers from magnolia for ages and never found a use for them, they were perfect for this weeks theme…



PTW 66 - Stars & Stripes


I used the Here Comes Annabel art pad from Lili of the Valley, this image is called ‘texting’ if you want to get her in a stamp and it’s a great time to buy because they have a summer sale at the moment and the rubber stamps are all reduced in price!


Here’s what else I used;

Marianne fence

Doohickey flags

Little B circle

Spellbinders scalloped circle

Computer generated sentiment




Hope you like it, you can check out what the DT did and find full details for the challenge on the Papertake Weekly blog here, as always there is a smashing prize up for grabs




Right I’ll love you and leave you, I’m writing this on Saturday evening, it’s been a gorgeous day and I went to see the Tour de France which was about a mile from my house this morning – it was VERY exciting!

Need to go pack though now, I had a list of things to do today and sitting watching cycling all day wasn’t on it!

Hope you’re having a nice week everyone
