Hello All!! I hope you are all having a great day and had a great weekend!! We had a very busy but productive weekend doing yard work.  I was so thrilled to have some nice weather.  It got up to 70 degrees!! Woo hoo!  Unfortunately it is suppose to rain the entire weekend so hopefully I got my fill of sun that I need to keep me motivated.

Today marks a new challenge at Stamp and Create!!  This month our challenge is to use charms.  How fun and easy is that?

Here is my take on the challenge:

For my card I used the My Sweet Lili image from Stampavie.  I also used the Love Charm
Kaisercraft Silver Rhinestones, and Kaisercraft Snow pearls available in the Stamp and Create Store. 
The designer paper is from Prima Sparkling Spring and the lace is from Wild Orchids.

Stamp and Create is also having a special sale on "All things Royal" (princesses, dragons, etc.)  All of these images will be up to 25% off.

For more inspiration using Stamp and Create's stamps and products, please visit my dt sisters:
 Joy, Lacey, Heidi, Vicky and  Jeanette.

challenges I am entering my creation in:
Clear It Out! - Ribbon/Trim
Ladybug Crafts Ink TLT Challenge - Going Dotty
Paper Take Weekly - Anything Goes
Top Tip Tuesday -  Open challenge - anything Goes
Try It On Tuesday  - A Card using Something older than 6mths and something newer than 6mths (older than 6 months-stamp, newer than 6 months- dp)
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft - Something beginning with C (charm, cuddle)
DDH Challenges -  Bling
House of Gilli - lots of layers and faux or real stitching
Kaboodle Doodles - 'B' embellishments (bling and butterfly)
Make it Monday - Anything goes
Paper Playtime -  Friends
Corrosive Challenges -  Turqoise and Pink
Crafty Pad -  Pearls and Swirls
Let's Ink It Up -   Embellish it.
One Stitch At A Time - Embossing.

Scrappy Frogs -  Anything goes
One Stop Craft -  In Stitches (it is hard to see in the photo but there is silver stitching)
