A lovely day!

Evening all! Well I've had a lovely day today - with my girls and mother-inlaw (Bez - she's fab!) at the Gulliver's World Attraction in Warrington. It really was fantastic - we got there to blue skies and enjoyed a good 5 hours before the heavens opened and sent us scurrying back to the car - and we will return as we just didn't manage to get everything done!

I also had some very exciting news yesterday - I'm not sure if I'm allowed to tell you - but I will anyway - I've been asked to join the DT for the Crafty Pad - I'm so excited! Thanks so much ladies - I'l do my best not to let you down!!!!

Oddly enough - the card I'd like to share with you this evening includes an image from the crafty pad that I won from their May release.



Isn't he just adorable? The colour scheme and stars were inspired by the challenge over at chocolatecoffeecards: photo inspiration and I followed a sketch from the challenge over atsketchandstashchallenge - my new stash that I've used is my sheena douglass daisy embossing folder - love it!!! I picked it up when I was at Dawn Bibby's shop the other weekend doing the workshop with Hels sheridan - and this is the first chance I've had to use it!!! I'd also like to enter this card into the cutiepiechallenge:  diecuts and punches, sweetstampinchallengeblog 'favourite' stamp andpapermakeupstamps Digi makeover challenge tic tac toe - which is bling, critter and embossing.

I think that's all for today - its my birthday tomorrow - and I'm very excited about the crafty stash my husband has got for me!!!! I say that he got for me - he gave me the money and I went on a spree!!!! What a lovely man he is!!!!

So until tomorrow! Hugs Rachel xxxx
