Simple Flower & Day 2 PDCC fun!

Yay, it's Friday! I've been doing a bit of work today, but I couldn't resist finishing off a little card I'd started, so will have to get back to it soon.

As you know it's our anniversary over at the Play Date Cafe this week, our first!  All very exciting!  You can read all of the details in my post here. 

I'm really hoping to join in the fun this week and get a few {ippity} cards made, so this is my first one...

I just LoVe this paper, it's fAb!  It's by My Mind's Eye - 'Fresh Beauty'.  The flower stamp I've used is from this Faith Blooms set.  Such a simple, yet gorgeous set.  I used a small SU! stamp for the sentiment, and SU! grosgrain ribbon.  Unfortunately you can't see the detail very well on this picture, but I have used a metallic Sakura pen to add detail to the flower, it's really pretty close up, but you will have to take my word on that ;o)

If you'd like this stamp set for yourself then just hit my Ippity link at the top of the page and you can buy one there. 

In the meantime don't forget to pop on over to the Play Date Cafe for some more fun!

So what are your plans for the weekend?  I have a school fete coming up at the end of November, so have a LOT of cards to make, plus I also have a few orders to get finalised.  Lots of fun crafting for me, hopefully I can get Tink (my daughter) to join me in the studio too, and I'm sure a sneaky bar of chocolate or two will get in there somewhere!

I also want to play with this label over at Tiffany Doodles.

It takes me a bit longer to work on digital, I'm still a novice, but this one will be nice and simple to work with, isn't it gorgeous?!  I will show you what I have made once I get it finished!  You still have time to enter our challenge over at Tiffany Doodles this month too, it's a fall theme.
