Paper Sundaes #87 Use some felt

This week at Paper Sundaes we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamps and we would like you to use felt on your project.  
I hadn't used felt before - but now - my local craft store needs to replenish their stock and I have lots of different colours of felt at my house.
I really wish that we could do a Diamond challenge next 'cause I don't have any of those either and I can always justify a craft spend.
I might just suggest that to the team and see what they think.
This image I have used is Stamping Bella - 'Florence the Flowerpot' and is available at Simon Says.
Pop on over to Paper Sundaes for some fabulous inspiration.

Top Tip Tuesday Birthday
Ladybug Craft #37 Flowers
Southern Girls Layers/Birthday/Blog hop
Paper Play #37 Punches and Dies
Card Makin Mamas #29 Punches

Picture Perfect!

Don't you just love other peoples holiday snaps?
Don't answer that!
I did want to share one tranquil relaxing photo with you all and let you know that I achieved my goal.
My holiday goal that is - to read, sit, relax and eat. Although I possibly may have focused a little too much on the "eat" goal.
My partner and I stayed 8 nights in Port Douglas in Northern Queensland - a beautiful destination - with perfect weather every day.
I wasn't able to comment on anyones blog while I was away which was due to a problem I had with my Google account or it could have been the fact that the internet cafe was also an icecream shop. (I am sure it was Google tho) 
Now I am back and very relaxed so I cant wait to see what you have all been up to.
Scroll down to see the other 265 photos - Joking!!!

Challenge #86 Finishing Touches

Paper Sundaes would really like you to - Show us the INSIDE!
It nomally takes all my effort to decorate just the front of a card - so this was definitely a challenge for me.
After I stopped obsessing over my Copic colouring I opened up the card and began. I began.....colouring cause I just cant stop myself.
By placing the diecut shape down on some card and colouring around it with a light copic marker you get the negative image. Wow! Look at that! I was so excited - it is like I just invented this technique myself isn't it!!!  Doesn't take much to make me happy. (he he) and I am still enjoying my holiday in the sun. Dont you just love internet cafes - Not! 
Hop on over to Paper Sundaes because this week we are sponsored by My Favourite Things and you will see some ultra fabulous images from the rest of the team.
If all goes well I will enter this card into the following challenges:
C.R.A.F.T. challenge #119 Children
Ladybug Crafts Ink Anything Goes
Little Red Wagon #97 Diecuts
Crafting for all Seasons #9 Birthday
Stamp Something Final Challenge - Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge #83 Spots and/or Stripes
