I really LOVE these challenges, run by the amazing Darnell HERE
It is a GREAT opportunity to get into that stash & find stuff that has
never been used.
I'd gotten a Kaiser Craft stamp set.
That I did not need. But it was 40% off....
Of course, I hadn't used it. Til now!
Here's the card I made.
Back to the bokeh technique. With hearts. So cute!
And it wouldn't dry quick enough, so I sprinkled some
'iridescent' embossing powder on. HAPPY
with the shine! 
And I did enjoy using those little  chevron stamps too:)
Bet YOU have stuff in your stash you've never used!
This challenge is a great chance to DO SOMETHING
about it!!!

There are a number of challenges here this
month. I've joined in with the 
This gorgeous page is by Shannon Carole Daniel
Now, my French is 'tres pauvre'.....but I'm hoping it IS a scrap lift!
And I've kept close to the original, which I LOVE as it's so light and bright
and breezy :)
This is an A4 page. It's another for Mum's calendar. I really enjoyed
creating the background with ink spray scrunched up on a plastic bag,
then slapped onto the cardstock!
 Stamping, badges - including my 'hand crafted' one using an clear sticky round
 I was given some Close To My Heart Stamps [above] to use
in a Scrapbooking Memories magazine article, which
is out this month....luckily, I got to keep them!
That's it for me! Hope you have a lovely scrappy day:)
