A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge - A Secret Message

Thank you to everyone who entered a card into our challenge last week over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar". It has been so lovely to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations.

This weeks challenge is called Secret Message. We would love you to hide a message somewhere in your card.

We have one of the new release High Hopes stamps "Juggles" to send to one randomly chosen winner this week. The stamp has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. Silly Monkey Crafts have lots of the new High Hope releases instock.
For my card this week I had a chance to play with lots of my new lovely SU products. Their card stock is fabulous quality and don't forget that this month if you buy 3 packets of the designer papers you get the 4th free.

Have a great week,
Hugs
