Sir Stampalot Challenge and Blog Hop

Hi There!
Hopefully you have arrived here from the lovely Debby's blog. If not you need to go to Brenda's blog to start with and follow the links till you arrive here again. Don't forget to go back to Brenda with your entry for the challenge too! Pop your entry into Brenda's Mr Linky. The challenge and blog hop is open worldwide and entries to the challenge can be combined with other challenges, but not back linked.
Full details are posted on Brenda's blog, so do please have a go!

For the theme 'Moving' I've made a double 'wiper' card, so called as two little wipers swing out of the top when you pull the two edges!

I used the leaf flourish from Hero Arts, a small butterfly (Hero arts Clear design set), the Victoria cuttlebug embossing folder and the Journey word art from Crafty Individuals. I couldn't make a card for Sir Stampalot without including a rose, as it was there that my good friend Brenda taught me how to make them.
The letter you need to collect from me is M and, once you have left a comment, you need to pop over to Julia's blog where you can continue collecting your letters and see the fabulous creations from my talented teamies! If you want to find out more about Wiper cards then you can see a great tutorial here, but I would strongly recommend you leave a comment and finish the blog hop first!!! Thanks for visiting and good luck!

P.S. If I know you and you win, please can I come round for a play?!
