Floating around

Did you manage to catch any of the Appley Dapply launch programmes on Create and Craft yet? It was so exciting to see my cards on the TV. I have had another parcel with yet more new products so start saving your pennies because these are delish.

Something different to show you today. As well as using up some of my papers I am determined to use some other stash this year as well. When I first spotted this topper in Sainsburys it was £2.99! All it had with it was 4 squares with buttons so rather expensive I though but very cute. Some time later browsing in the store I found them reduced to 25p so bought a couple. I have used the squares and the toppers were still sitting amongst my unused stash so I decided to use one for a change. Papers are K&Co Hopscotch punched with an MS zigzag punch. Ribbon and buttons to finish. Cute, I think.
Challenges:
Allsorts Card for a male
A Spoon full of sugar Blue and green
Cute Card Thursday 1,2,3 (mines I image, 2 papers, 3 buttons)
