Start spreading the news ....

.... I'll bet you're all humming the song now!!! I know I am!  My card today has been made for three challenges:

Stamps: Sweet Stamp Shop - Cityscape, Dia De Los Muertos, Let's Chat
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Basic Grey
Dies: Spellbinders - Crown Circles (S4-302) #3, Circles Lg (S4-114) #4, Circles Sm (S4-116) #4
Accessories: SU Card - Basic Grey; SU DP - Old Olive; White Lustre Card; SU - 1" Circle punch

I was looking through my stash of Sweet Stamp Shops sets and saw the phone dial and cable - they sort of reminded me of a flower - so that's what I played with.  I stamped the phone dial twice onto white card and used my Spellbinder dies to cut out the circles.  I used my 1" SU circle punch to cut out the centre of the pink dial.  I then die cut the crown circle and adhered the phone dial on top.  I made the card base from Basic Grey card. I cut a panel of white card to fit and scored a border all the way round.  I stamped the phone cable directly onto the card and then adhered the phone flower.  I finished off with the scroll sentiment.  For the inside I cut another panel of white card and stamped a tick box greeting!!  A fun card for my stash.

My stash of SSS sets remains the same - and I still have lots of ideas - they are fun!

Hope you're all having a good day.  I've had a busy morning, lots of jobs to do before our holiday!!  So pleased that I managed to get an hour in my craft room this afternoon.  See you soon.
