I have a card for Bunny Zoe's Crafts to share with you today.  This cutie is a stamp by A Random Fan called Wanderlust.  Isn't it adorable!!!
I really love this one :)

I made this card for a fabulous lady who owns a motorbike inspired coffee shop near my home called Moto Vecchia.  She is always so kind to me and my girls so I thought I'd make her a little thank you card.  Hope she likes it :)

The sentiment is from a wonderful CC Designs set called Great Birthday Greetings.
The beautiful paper is from a pad by Echo Park called Head Over Heels.
And I used a pretty pink button.  The challenge at the Bunny Zoe's Crafts blog this month is buttons, I love using them on cards.  Why don't you try one on a card and enter our challenge too?

CC Designs Favourite

WooHoo!  I'm on the team at CC Designs for another term!

I was so excited to be asked to stay on.  It's a wonderful team and a fabulous company with SO many gorgeous stamps to use :)

Lucky me!!!

I have been a fan of CC Designs for a long time now.  
I think the first stamp I bought when I got my copics was this cutie.  I just loved it and knew my girls would too.  I remember trying and trying to get her hair right and being so pleased with how it turned out. That was about 2 and a half years ago now and (luckily) I can see that I have improved but I still love this card.

The new CC Design Team has been given the chance to pick their favourite stamp and give one away to someone who comments on their blog.

It was very hard to choose a favourite, there are just so many adorable ones!
But I think I'll have to go with this Roberto's image called Kisses.

It's great to be able to give a prize to one of my readers, so if you love this stamp as much as I do, please leave me a comment.  I will pick a winner on Monday.

Thanks for dropping by today
