14th ROP Challenge, Friday Sketchers and Coco is home

Hello and a happy start in the new week! We had quite an exciting weekend. We brought Coco home, our new puppy! Finally ! YAY! ;-) She is such a sweetheart and a clown as well. We already love her and are having sooooooo much fun with her. And Cleo our 5 year old dog is still a little skeptical and curious as well, about the new and still tiny family member....all these new smells...lol. She just needs a little time to adjust (and lots of extra TLC ;-) ) to the new situation of not being the one and only dog in the house. I'll post pictures during the week. Right now I don't have much time to do anything...lol

Today it's another Monday and time for a new Roses on Paper Challenge!
This time it is on Rosette to choose the challenge and she came up with a great idea! Callenge theme for our newest Challenge is using flowers on your card/project (flower stamp, paper with flowers, decorate with flowers etc) and combine our challenge with another challenge. I think that is a fabulous theme and I chose to join this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge together with our challenge. They are having a greart sketch to work with this week. For all the details and information on our challenge visit our Roses on Paper Challenge Blog.

And as a reminder our Guest DT Call for Summer's new and exclusive stamp line Belles and Whistles is still going. And one of the conditions to apply is you must have joined at least 1 of our ROP challenges. So if you haven't yet and like to apply for a GDT position it is still time to do so. GDT's will be selected in the first week of July. Just click here and read all abbout it!

For my card I chose the Alota image "Roses". I love this stamp and I colored it with distress inks from Tim Holtz. I also used Shimmerz on the image as well as on the little roses (Prima). The DP I used is from Basic Grey's Porcelaine paper pad. Sentiment stamp is from The Greeting Farm and swirls are from Inque Boutique. Ribbon and buttons from my stash. The halfpearl is from Basic Grey's Opaline Collection . Punches used are from Martha Stewart and EK Success.

Thanks for stopping by!
