just a little touch of gingham-Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar special monthly challenge DT+Mojo Monday+7 Kids college fund challenge

Good morning everyone, wow did the bad weather hit with a vengeance yesterday the rain was horizontal sheets with high winds and it was bleeding freezing, is the spring ever going to come because I don't think I will ever thaw out if it doesn't hurry up...did the gales hit you where you are...well you all know how I love gingham well I might have gone just a tad overboard with it on this card I think...we have a new Monthly challenge over at Just Magnolia & hAnglar challenge and there's an added option of adding ribbon, what me use ribbons are you joking, I hardly ever make a card without them...I decided this week to use a hAnglar stamp, shes a real sweetie isn't she, I paper pieced her and coloured the rest with Distress inks, I used some more of the lush saddlestiched ribbon to frame her and added a gingham ribbon and a couple of stamped hearts and a cupcake to finish...the gingham papers are from Craft Creations and are an amazing 35p for a 12x12 sheet, I got these at the NEC...the sketch is another fab one from Mojo Monday and Im also entering it for the 7 Kids college fund I (heart) you challenge too...have a wonderful day everyone whatever the weather deals you and when you have time pop on over to Just Magnolia to see the amazing creations from the rest of the DT
