Pear Tree Designs, Weekly Challenge # 1

Good morning peeps! It's another scorcer here in Sussex today, too hot to sit outside at the moment. My little cat is suffering in this heat and is flopped out on the patio. She has a hairball at the moment, and we will have to take another trip to the vets this week if it doesn't clear up. She was very naughty at the weekend and caught one of our baby robins, it died from the shock unfortunately, so she has been in our bad books, nature isn't kind sometimes!

I have been asked to join a new Design Team on a new Challenge blog. Pear Tree Design's is run by Donna and today we are launching it's first challenge. It's a fabby sketch to follow and a wonderful Stamping Up card kit set is the prize, it is a wonderful set, I already have it, lol! The little Cupcake image used, can be purchased by clicking on the link.

All you have to do to join in the challenge, is to make a card, become a follower of the blog and leave a link so that the design team can pop on over to your blog and say hi! We have so many great challenges coming up with wonderful sponsors, so please do join in the fun!

Here is the sketch and my take on it -

My Card Recipe:

Pink and Green Stamping Up Cardstock
Doodlebug Check Paper
MS Doily Lace and Flourish Punch
QK Scallop Die
Doodlebug 'Happy' and 'Birthday' Sentiments
Kaisercraft Green Stones
Red button from stash box
Coloured in with Promarker Pens

Am going to sit in the sun and chill for a while, have a large ironing mountain to climb when it gets a bit cooler, lol!

Enjoy your afternoon,

Take care,
