3 in 1 challenge

I don't seem to have done many challenges for a while so thought it was about time I got my act together and took part in a few..... I took a look at the Monday challenges, noted them down and disappeared to my craft room (wireless network doesn't work that far, not worked out how to remedy that yet, and don't really have the space for laptop out there!)

Had a rummage through my stamps, stamped a few images up, couldn't decide what to do when I discovered the Dress Up Maggie stamp, such a cute one to work with, looked at the 3 challenges I had written down and hey presto, my card was designed, I could combine PTW, MTTC and Sketch and Stash challenges in one card.....

Papertake Weekly - this weeks challenge - Hot Chocolate! ol It's a colour combination challenge, the Pink and Orange is the 'hot' part and the brown is obviously the chocolate!

My Time To Craft - Challenge 51 is - HATS

Sketch & Stash - challenge no 5.



I just love the Sweet Always papers (new stash) I have used here, love the colour combo, the image was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink pad, coloured with Watercolour Crayons, Only Orange, Pixie Pink and Chocolate Chip ink pad, using watercolour brush. I added a bit of bling to Maggie's boa with Glamour Dust. Image mounted onto Chocolate Chip cardstock and backing paper from Sweet Always set. The sentiment is from the Wonderful Words set, stamped in Choc Chip ink onto Choc Chip cardstock, punched with ribbon punch and added to card with double sided tape. The flowers are some I bought ages ago, just had to have and don't think I have ever used any of them(neglected stash)!

Recipe
Cardstock - Confetti White, Chocolate Chip - SU!
Backing paper - Sweet Always - SU!
Colouring - as detailed above
Stamps - Wonderful Words - SU!, Dress Up Maggie - Sugar Nellie
Ribbon - stash
Blooms - think Craft Central

Love this hot chocolate theme - the colours look so scrummy together.

BTW, can't quite bring myself to use my Stampin Up stuff yet. I've mounted up my stamps but can't seem to stop stroking the card and paper... It seems such a shame to actually cut into it!

Also forgot to say that I acted on the spur of the moment and called into The Range in Gosport on the way home from your house the other day. I managed to get some yummy bits off their sale shelf so I was dead chuffed! ~x~
