Wee Suzi

Good morning! Please could someone tell me when we are going to get some spring weather!!?? I want sunshine! I want warm! I want to see the spring flowers raising their little faces towards the sun, not shuddering dejectedly in the wind! I don't want any more snow, sleet, ice or nasty icy winds! OK now I've finished moaning and whining, I'll tell you about this weeks challenge at Sweet Stampin'! This week it's another easy one -Scallops. For my DT card I decided to make an easel card for a change, haven't made one of these for a while! The cute stamp is Wee Suzi, by Wee Stamps . I was lucky enough to win  some amazing blogcandy from the  lovely, talented (and very generous!) Gail, (Lacey Lassy) you can check out her blog here, and this stamp was a very small part of it! Wee Suzi is coloured with cpoics and her dress is paper pieced to match the frame. I added some flowers and a bow to the base of the card along with a lovely die cut flourish (die also courtesy of Gail, told you she was generous!).
The rest of the DT have once again made some amazing cards for ypur delectation and delight!, so pop over to Sweet Stampin' now, I'd hate you to miss anything! There are prizes to be won, too, this week our sponsors are Heather Ellis and  The Ribbongirl .
 Well, that's all from me for now, thanks so much for looking and I hope you have a lovely weekend (...and that it soon gets warmer for those of us that live in the UK!...)
