TPS Monthly and Creative Inspirations Puppy Kiki project!!

Hello dear bloggers,
How was your weekend?
In the states, we had our Memorial Day happenings,
3 days weekend, for the kids anyway!!!
And I was fortunate enough to have some company,
my dad and stepmom drove in from California
to hang out with us!!
It was really quite nice,
they showed up a little early,
so I didn't get to do all the cleaning I had planned,
but nevertheless, good times, good times.

Well, I'll bet you are here to see a card,
not read about my personal life,
so here we go then!!
I have combined my
Tickled Pink Stamps Monthly Challenge sample
which is a fine sketch created by Kellie Winnell,
with my Creative Inspirations project,
their challenge is lace and sparkle,
and we are sponsored by the yummilicious
Craft Brulee,
and arrived at this creation:

This is my first C.C. Design stamp EVER, which I bought from the lovely Kellie of Tickled Pink Stamps, find it HERE, she's been coloured with distress inks then highlighted and Spica'd. That lovely lace and beautifully vintage embellishment are from Craft Brulee, thank you Nat for setting this fab sponsor up, they even provided a little something for us DT girls to play with, as you can see here ;)

The papers are Cosmo Cricket (floral) and Pink Paislee (dots), a fantastic square doily in the mix, the CS and edges of most things have been glittered with Stardust Stickles.

Well, I hope you will take a look at what these overly-talented ladies have whipped up for the challenges, if you'd like to get a looksie at that TPS sketch for the challenge blog, I have it in my sidebar!!

Nighty night, sleep tight!!
Bedbugs are said to be on the rise,
