No Christmas cards in sight!!

Well hello there!! Hope you are all well. I am now down to just 3 Christmas cards to make but yesterday felt I just HAD to make something non-Christmasy!!! So here we are...

It's my birthday on Monday so am looking forward to some new crafty stash which I will, of course, post so you can see!!

So here is the cutie MFT stamp set All Star A la Mode. I coloured her with watercolour pencils and paper pieced her trousers and flag. Papers are by MME Happy Go Lucky and I just love them- they are SO my colours!! I used the MFT grass to add a bit of texture and then a Papertrey ink leaf die across the centre. Sentiment is MFT which accompanies the main stamp.

I'd like to enter this into:
Fab n Funky Challenges- anything goes
Simon Says- anything goes
Alphabet Challenge- very vibrant
Allsorts- pennant or bunting- hope this counts!
Sweet Stampin- punches and/or dies
Pile It On- girly

Usual close up!

Crafty stash used: Stamps (MFT); Watercolour pencils; Papers (MME); Assorted cardstock; Dies (MFT, Papertrey Ink); Nesties; Ink (Razzleberry SU); Nailheads (Josy Rose); Buttons; Bakers twine
