Papertake Weekly - Bingo ! and La-La-Land Crafts Challenge !

Good morning ! I hope you are all OK, fit and well and enjoying the Summer holidays with the kiddos ? We had a lovely day spent with friends yesterday, a walk by the river and canal and then a pint in the pub - would have been even more fantastic if it hadn't have been under the shelter of umbrellas !!!

Here we are again with another Papertake Weekly challenge. Thank you to everyone who joined in with our "Grow Your Own" challenge last week, it was fantastic to see all your homemade flowers.

This week we are playing a game of bingo !!

We are being sponsored by the fantastic Ribbon Girl this week !

I have also made my card this week for the content that is going on over at La-La Land Crafts. They are celebrating the first birthday of Marci and Luka with the most fantastic prize of a set of 36 Copic pens !! Now naturally I would give my right arm to win this prize and I am hoping you can help me !!

If you like my card I would be soooo grateful if you could go over to the La-La Land Crafts blog and leave a comment voting for my card to win ! Here is the link for you


So, here is my card :

The DP's are by BasicGrey "Hello Luscious" and have all been machine stitched.

The image is of course by La-La Land Crafts and is called "Marci with Flower". I have used the digi version. Marci has been coloured with Copics.

I used two Martha Stewart punches for both the fence and the grass.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts "Anytime Messages"

The flowers and silver corner are by Wild Orchid Crafts and I have used a Magnolia Doohickey behind the flowers.

I am keeping everything crossed that you can vote for me *big grins* !!

I am also entering these challenges :

Pink Elephant Challenge - Stitching

Crafty Calendar - Hot Colours

Card Makin' Mamas - Happy Birthday

Crafty Sentiments - Punches and Die-Cuts

We are looking forward to seeing all your bingo entries. Have a great day and thank you so much for your visit !
