Spring Doodles - Anything Goes and a Lovely new release of beautiful stamp sets

Hi my dear friends

Hope all are well were you are!  We have decided to take a mini break and go to the North of Scotland. We decided to stop at Blair Caste which is a small village in Blair Atholl. We had such a nice time. So peaceful and relaxing. Gone for small walks and nice meals. I am still having such a hard time with my knee since I fell of the stairs in November last year.  I took my Parchment Craft with me and made some lovely projects. I love the fine lace and white work of Parchment!

Well it is Tuesday and time for a new Chalenge at

No DP Paper

We have another Technique Challenge once a month and is ending on the

The theme for that challenge is 

Dryer Sheet  Flower Technique

Well everybody here is my take on the Challenge:

My base card is Hammered White Card
I layered it  With Bright Orange and Lime Green card stock

I used this lovely new stamp set that
SweetStamps.com has just released
This set is so versatile and handy I just
used every stamp in this set.
I used Memento to stamp the images.
I used Promarkers to colour the images in:
Lime Green & Bright Orange

 I stamped this imaged twice and colored it in and added
these tiny bright Orange bows with a
Silver Gem in the middle

These love versatile sentiment is 2 lovely stamps
I used the little butterfly stamp that you also get in this set
colored it in and added trails of silver gems.

Links to all the lovely products are below. You can stock up on some 
needed supplies from the SweetStamps Store

Go and have fun and shop till you drop!!
