Roses and lace

It's my turn, along with Brenda, to make a mid month card for the Sir Stampalot challenge and I've chosen to       go with another Rose stamp from the Pick of the Bunch collection by Tonic Studios and I've added the lace behind the designer paper this time. The Roses have been mounted onto a Tonic Studios Butterfly Circle doily die with 3D foam squares by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and the butterfly is, of course, my all time favourite standby, the Multi Detail Butterfly punch.

I've been on the Design Team  at Sir Stampalot for several months now and have really enjoyed getting to know the other members.You can read a bit more about how both Brenda and I got started crafting on the challenge blog.I first met Brenda , who heads the team, (and Eddy!) when I visited the shop last June while on holiday.Since then we've been in constant touch and I have appreciated all the encouragement and advice Brenda so willingly gives to all.

Before you go, please take a few minutes to check if you know the signs of a stroke - you could save a life.
This illness has raised its head once again this week in our family and I think it's a good time to help raise awareness and remind you of the signs......
