Just a little bit more gingham-Crafts & Me challenge+Stamp something challenge+DYSU challenge

Good morning how are you all doing today...well and happy I hope...I did nothing yesterday except made a few cards and a bit of the dreaded housework, doesn't happen often but as there's only me here there's never much to do thank goodness, I officially hate housework its so boring isn't it...I'm off to lunch with my Dad and husband today and maybe a little wander around the shops I wouldn't mind the new Brits awards CD sounds a good un, what you all doing today...anything exciting?...my card for today is just a little bit more gingham this time in red...I must get a whole load of gingham in different colours to give as candy as I'm sure there are more gingham lovers than just me out there...this stunningly beautiful image is a Sweet Pea stamp called Ching-Chou Kuik's Seeing Through, I bought it from Crafts and Me, look at those amazing eyes, I coloured her with distress inks and glittered her wings...the gingham is Craft creations, I finished with a ribbon and lace strip and a button and another piece of ribbon for the sentiment...I cant for the life of me remember where the sketch is from, but its a challenge I know that much lol...I'm entering this for the Crafts & Me Red challenge, Stamp Something challenge and the DYSU ribbon challenge too...I have you have a brilliant day whatever your up to
