I was wondering how I was going to even get this post written over the last few days as I've really struggled with internet availability.
We lost internet here again on Tuesday lunch as many here did when BT went down, fine I thought I was going to my son's for the day so I would catch up there - wrong his Virgin had also bombed on Monday!
After numerous phone calls the engineer is heading his way on Saturday afternoon to check the connection, not for the first time I hasten to add. Anyhow when I returned BT had reconnected us so today I madly got what needed doing, just in case the internet failed again!
Technology is great when it works but an absolute pain in the butt when it doesn't!

Anyway, hi and welcome to a brand new challenge over at STAMPlorations.

Here is my card for this month's sketch / theme challenge.

This is this month's theme

or you can use this sketch

or combine them both, the choice is all yours! I sort of chose both in my own way!
I stamped various blooms from Flowers and Frames then fussy cut them and made little bouquets. I cut a frame of 6 using a MFT Blueprint quilt die in pale blue card, then cut it down to just 3.
On a white base card I flicked some dilute Memento Gray Flannel then stamped a sentiment from the same Flowers and Frames set and placed the frame and flower clusters on top of the splatter.

Please check out the main blog for more details on the challenge and prizes and while you are there, check out the fab DT's inspiration, including our latest member of the team Suchi and our GD Diane Jaquay.
