Hi lovely bloggers! This is my final Guest Design Team spot with the ladies at DU2DS and I have thoroughly enjoyed it.  Many thanks to Chris and the DT for asking me to join them. 
The theme this fortnight is Flowers, which I'm sure will be a very popular Challenge subject.  A digi stamp is required on your project, and full details can be found by clicking on the above link.
I will schedule this Post for the 23rd (hope it works!) as we are having some work done on the house so the computer, and my craft room, may be out of bounds for a wee while (oh no)!
The pink cardstock and Bloomin' Cute paper have been in my paper-stroking box for about five years, so are probably discontinued by now.  They are from the "aunt gerti's garden sidekicks" range by S.E.I. (What a fabulous name)! The beautiful image is from Chris at Sketching Stampercoloured with Copics and inked around the edges with Tattered Rose Distress Ink.  Martha Stewart border punch, lots of pearls, some toning ribbon and two Cuttled hearts to finish.
Have a great weekend -  Love and Hugs, Sylvia xxxx

Hi Sylvia. Hope you are back in blogland soon and the work is still going well. It must a real upheavel but I'm sure will be well worth it in the end.
This is another lovely image beautifully coloured, the shading is gorgeous. I love the Martha Stewart edges too, it's amazing how different they look layering and putting them different ways, I must try this.
Hope to see you soon.

Just wanted to stop in before heading down to the craftroom. I'm so ready to get busy again. Be sure to show us some picks when the renovation is complete or better yet, some in the process of redoing. I put an ugly picture of my kitchen in distress up today.....LOL
