Nitwits papers...just my cup of tea!!

Hello my crafty friends Thursday again, my word where do the weeks go?  As it's Thursday my card today is my piece for the

and this time it's easy, we would like you to share a project using your favourite papers together with the reason. My favourite papers are My Mind's Eye and Nitwits. Both ranges offer such diversity for all seasons and manner of reasons and/or projects. On this occasion I chose Nitwits Winter Wishes simply because it suited the style I had in mind for the template that I used from our sponsor.

Shape EZ

Here's what I did

I coloured the sweet stamp with Aquamarkers this time on watercolour card. The hessian and jute ribbon added the texture together with the flower and die cut leaves.

I am entering these brilliant challenges

Allsorts Challenge #269 - Time for tea
Natalie & Amy #23 - Die cuts & Flowers
Craft Your Passion #224 - Flower Power
My time to Craft #254 - Use kraft
Divas by Design - Anything Goes
I Love Promarkers #230 - Ribbons (hope jute ribbon counts!!)

Before I go I just want to scare you with some snaps of Hubby and I relaxing yesterday after a hard day's work (him, not me) !! Think we'd better make the most of it as it looks like rain may be on it's way :0(

Who needs to fly to sunnier climates...Dorset is fine for me!!

 He said I snapped his best side...of course it's because in reality  he is an international rock star and didn't want to be recognised!!

Thanks for your visit and lovely comments, I appreciate it.

Bye for now xx
