pretty pigtail girl

Good morning all  (just!). I hope you all had a good weekend? I've had a fab weekend with my daughters' shows and also two top threes and a lucky win! Its hot here today - really sticky but curently dry - I'm hoping it stays that way as my eldest daughter Lucy has a school trip today in Grizedale forest - it'll be good for her to get some fresh air!

Enough of my whittering on - I've got a card to share with you today that I'm really chuffed with - the image is from sugar nellie digi collection - and I think she's adorable!




I've used Fiona's sketch for this fortnight over at the sugar bowl and added a friend sentiment to make my card suitable for aud sentiments. The red colour reflects the DYSU challenge and the whole card suits the theme for the willow sketchie challenge - I didn't use the sketch - hope thats ok.
So I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
sugarbowlblog: Fiona's sketch
DYSUdoyoustackup: Red
Aud sentimentsaudsentimentschallengeblog: Friend
willowsketchiechallenge: theme summer florals
thatcraftplaceblog: Anything goes.
lexiscreations:For a friend

Thanks for any comments you may leave - and I'll be back tomorrow with another LEJ challenge DT post!

Big Hugs

Rachel xx
