Elphine House Australia Challenge - Hearts and Ribbons!

Hello! Well here i am at last. I have been trying to finish this post since yesterday. Tried to get some spring cleaning done yesterday but didnt get far without feeling drained and shattered. When my blood count is down i cant do much without getting shaky and bit breathless. Felt like i had ran a marathon and had only tidied some of Carries room! Anyway i did try and then had to chill out rest of the day! I also had Carrie off school the day before with a headache and sickness. I wondered if it was a migraine she had as she said she couldnt see properly and was crying with the head ache. Like i have said before, there is always a drama in our house!

So anyway i am here with my DT for the latest Elphine House Australia challenge. The challenge this fortnight is to use
"Hearts and Ribbons"

To enter our challenge you must use a Elisabeth Bell stamp. This can be from any of the companies she has designed for such as Belles n Whistles, Sweet Pea, Whimsy etc but if you have a EHA stamp we would love to see what you have made with them. 

I have used "Daisy Hugging Dolly" from Elphine House Australia
Paper are Crafty Impressions "Romanza" with Kraft Card Stock and Tim Holtz Core-dinations.
Dies are X Cut Doily Die, Marianne Design Tag and Buttons, Memory Box Devine Butterflies and the hearts are all Sizzix dies.
Flowers from Wild orchid Craft,  Ribbon, Paper Thread and Jute bought from Hobbycraft as well as Buttons and pearls. The charm is recycled from a bracelet.

Heres another few pics...
I am going to enter the following challenges - 
Creative Moments Challenge - Buttons and Bows
Creative Craft Challenges - Hugs and Kisses!
Loves Rubber Stamps - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes

So that is me for now. I just this minute received 2 brand new stamps from Elphine House Australia...i am off to ink and colour. Love inking a brand new stamp!

Have a great day!
