sir Stampalopt Challenge.

good morning, is it nice out there where you are, I do hope so.
I do realise that I have been  a bad blogger, but at this time of the year I have to be outside as we have quite a lot of  garden that needs tending, I want to move,  and have a bit less, but my boys are so happy here.
my card is made with lots of little stamps ( mainly hero arts) from various sets.
the leaves are a nesti.
and the flower shape is also a nesti.
 this month on the Sir Stampalot Challenge we want to see  Magical worlds, don't worry it can be as simple as a butterfly like mine.
check out the rest of the DT to see what they have been up to here
oh yes and this is what you could win!
do you remember last month over on the Sir Stampalot Challenge blog you had to work out who was who , well this was me at around 9 year old, I wondered if you guessed correctly.

Brenda Brown said...

HI Chris
Glad to see you around.
This is one stunning creation as usual. The colours are fabulous and the way you have designed the card is so inspiring, I love the butterfly and flower.
The garden grows so quickly with weeds this time of the year so I know what you mean about having to be outside, but what an amazing April we have had. Long may it last.
Take care and have fun.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Good Morning chris.
I did not get that the picture was you, but that is not surprising, I am useless at anything like that, about how old peole are or photofits, I just cannot do it. I say people have blonde hair when they are dark ect....Usless!!
Onto your gorgeous card. I have not tried a twisted easel yet, you have done an amazing job and did you stamp all the background paper? Brilliant and very lovely with the butterflies.
Have a nice day. Debbiexx

Cheryl said...

Doreen said...

Such a gorgeous card Chris,I love the design and your stamped background.

Don't talk to me about gardening I have found muscles I never knew I had and we have lost quite a few mature plants thanks to our horrendous winter. Ah well lets hope we get a nice summer so we can enjoy all the work we have put in.

Yes, we have been on the "battle against the garden". We might be just starting to win .. .. but still loads to do.

Difficult to fit everything in at this time of year isn't it.
