Chanel No 99

Hi there hope everyone is ok and enjoying their weekend.  Evidently we are going to have a heat wave next week! Yippee summer at last!! Can't wait just as we are going into October, about time we got our share of global warming cause so far it seems to be passing us by.

Today's card is made from a stamp I've had ages, I am still trying to use my old stamps as its such a shame when you buy new ones and forget about the others.  Having said that I've got new ones I've had a while and not even used yet.  Anyhoooooow, the stamp is by Inkadinkado, I really like their stamps their images are really pretty and delicate I've got a few that I really love.

I decided to do a thank you card and did the sentiment on my computer.  The papers are from a DCWV pad (scrummy) and I've added a few buttons from my stash.  I actually did the layout for a sketch so I will enter in into the following challenges:

A Gem of a Challenge - Sketch
Delicious Doodles - Cute as a Button
Our Craft Lounge - Designer Papers
The Poodle Parlour - Tea Party
Simply Create - Let's Eat Some Cake (I've got a croissant on)
Totally Papercrafts Challenge - Thank you
Bearly Mine Challenge - Button it Up
Paper Creations Ink - Buttons and Bows

I don't know if you remember but a few weeks ago I wrote that I had been to a perfume party at my sister's house.  Anyway this is the result, it came yesterday:

You designed your own perfume then the box and bottle!  I don't think I'll be putting Chanel out of business too soon but its cute don't you think?

A big hug to my new followers and hope you all enjoy the rest of the week-end, take care xx

Wow your perfume looks very cool I would luv those cats as a stamp, its a pity we dont have smelly vision, :o) your card is so pretty they are lovely papers, I made the mistake of clicking your link to the funkie Junkie her creations are stunning so I then hopped over to her etsy shop and that was a bigger mistake I put an order in couldnt resist, have a great weekend.
