Posting on a sunday, me what is going on?!!

Hello all, yes don't fall off your seats, not only have I posted everyday since Tuesday but I have even scheduled a post for sunday! I have been bitten by the crazy crafting bug, actually I have always had it but am doing my best to go with it right now! Of course with a house full of builders and kids from tomorrow don't be expecting too much of this insanity regularly from me!
Part of this fabulous urge to create is of course stemmed from some retail therapy lol! I have this adorable new tickled pink stamp which I got from Bunny Zoes "60s Willow" isn't she just stunning?!

I have followed the sketch over at Willow sketchie for this card but turned it upside down, I seem to like inverting things! I also have these stunning new papers from black market paper company (which I bought from craftie charlie) not only do they look amazing but they feel and smell amazing too (or is it just me who is strange enough to love the smell of new paper?!) I am so overwhelmed with how much I love these double sided beauties that I really feel the need to buy all of their paperstacks right now!!

My wonderful sweet image has been coloured with prismas and stamped round the edge with an SU flora stamp in victorian velvet ink. My velvety ribbon and butterfly are both prima from the moulin rouge collection. My flowers are a mix from wild orchids and my sentiment is whimsy which says " Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair" which I thought was quite apt for my image.

I would also like to enter this into My mums craft shop for a teen challenge, Paper shelter use green, DYSU wings challenge, Papercutz anything goes, stamp somethings embellished, sweet stampin fashion, 2 sisters anything goes and Tickled pink spots and stripes.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again everyone! Big hugs to you all
