Hello friends and followers - I hope Mr Blogger has been good today, and uploaded this scheduled Post.  If not, you won't be reading it!
I will be on holiday when this goes out on the 21st - (a "Big 0"birthday gift from Hubby) !

So peeps - it's time for more fun at ATCAS, and our uber-talented Teamie, Loll, is your Hostess this fortnight - here is the Code Word she has chosen for you ....

I used the Tim Holtz "Rays" stencil for My DT card - inked with
Distress inks - Mustard Seed and Wild Honey.
The white linen cardstock is from Craft Creations and the blue layer is Bazzil card - name of colour unknown.
Sentiment - computer generated, with a stamped exclamation mark (part of an old birthday stamp).

Once again, our generous Sponsor, Bugaboo Digi Stamps, is offering
7 fabulous digis for our CAS Perfectionist.

Hope you will join in the fun in the sun - see you soon!

Hi peeps - thank you for visiting!
Just popping by to share a card, using a beautiful dreamy stamp I bought from Blade Rubber when 
I met up with the ATCAS girls in London a few weeks ago. 

The square trellis die is Boudoir by Tonic, cut from SU Crumb Cake cardstock.
The background is SU Soft Sky card, layered onto a Crumb Cake base card .
The stamp is Judikins "Leda", stamped with SU Crumb Cake ink, cut out with a
Spellbinders circle die, edges inked with Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass & Vintage Photo.
Dies used - 
For the flower - Tim Holtz Tattered Florals and Spellbinders Bitty Blossoms. LOTV patterned paper for the base layer, over-stamped with SU "Music Notes" Stampin' Around Wheel.
Swirls and small flower sprays - a mixture of Memory Box  Geneva Vine and Whimsical Flourish.
Sentiment - Lili of the Valley Vintage Sentiments set. Distressed with DI, as above.

I am linking up to the following challenges - 

Rhedd and Rosie - Back in Time, Vintage Style

Vintage Stamping Challenges - Summer Blooms

Happy Crafting my friends - I will be away for a few days in June - missing you already!

Finished with a layer of Glossy Accents on the balloon.
Small clouds die - Memory Box. 
Sentiment - SU Happy Day stamp set.
