Well thank goodness the broadband "issue" was finally fixed today... after 15 days!! It's such a relief to have it back! I loved the color combo #192 at Color Combos Galore this week, I love a little bit of teal. Here's the inspiration board.

I also incorporated this week's challenge #57 at the City Crafter Challenge Blog, the challenge is to include 'Stripes and Polka Dots', love it!

The stamped polka dot frame is from Very Vintage Labels No.18 by Waltzingmouse Stamps and the sentiment is from Say it Loud and Sweethearts by Waltzingmouse Stamps. I lightened the sweetie text by rubbing a white ink pad lightly over the black and on the edges of the label.

I added a sweet lavender flower, a lace and hand dyed seam binding bow. The trinket pins I made with a fab porcelain bead and some pearls.

I'm definitely happy to have the broadband back, it's funny how disconnected you feel without it! Anyway, I've a bit of work to do tonight, better dash! I hope this annoying cold disappears by the weekend. I'm at the sore throat stage at the moment... : (
