Colours of Your Nation On Papertake Weekly.

This Week its The Colours of your Nation on Papertake Weekly. Now I was torn between my Independance as a Scot or Going with the Union and Using UK colours. So since its a special Jubilee year I went with the UK. 
The Challenge is sponsored by The Ribbon Girl this week. 

I am loving my new Spectrum Noirs, They are really super. I do still love my promarkers too but all the more pens to play with isnt too bad. No more crafty spending now though as have to save up to get the dog spayed. Oh boy is that a lot on pennies.  She has been so miserable this last couple of weeks though it wouldn't be fair to put her through it again. Especially when I wont be breeding her.

Card Recipe
6 x 6 Card
Anya Stamp from RAK
Papers Portobello Road
Coloured with Spectrum Noirs
White Spots Souffle Sakura Pen
Stitched on Sewing Machine

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges

Cute Card Thursday - Sparkle. (My Rhinestones)
Top Tip Tuesday - Dig out the Old (My stamp is really old, think I got it about a year and a half ago!!)

Im off now to enjoy the sun. Its my babys birthday today. Happy 15th Jake. Cant believe he is that old. Just seems like yesterday I had him.  We are hiving an Indian takeaway for dinner tonight with my folks. Really looking forward to not cooking.

This is fab Hazel. I love the image - she looks beautiful in red and blue! Love the papers - the stitching looks gorgeous! and the lace is perfect!
Aww poor Belle - I hope she is feeling better now. We had our dog spayed after first season… but that was many moons ago - so dread to think how much it costs now!!
I hope Jake had a lovely Birthday and hope you all enjoyed your meal !! I know what you mean about those years flying by….!!
Big Hugs
