Congratulations!

Wow - blogger is working - I can't believe it! I've been trying to sort this problem out all day and now it is working but only if I use the mozilla firefox browser - how odd is that - its like learning to walk all over again!

Anyway - wasn't it a gorgeous day? Its been stunning here - I took the girls to visit my mum and this afternoon we popped up to some fountains and a series of parks in Morecambe at a place called the Battery. It was fab - the girls had a lovely time running in and out of the fountains in their cossies - then we spent a litle time on the park too! Fab! More please!

I've got a card to share with you this evening that I made for Alice - who is my helper at Rainbows - she did her GCSE's this summer and her results should be here soon - about two weeks now I think.







I've used an image from Mo Manning, coloured with promarkers and layered onto a hexagonal card and mat. The flowers were from the lemon and grey bloom kit from Duck Pond Crafts and I've added pearls to the centre of each flower.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

simonsaysstampschallenge: Bingo (ribbon, free, blooms)
fabnfunkychallenges: Pearls
divasbydesignchallenge: For a female
Creative Inspirationscinspirations: Anything goes
tuesdayalchemy: Bingo- Ribbon, flowers, pearls
Miss Muffetlittlemissmuffetchallenges:  Scallops

A couple of other things to tell you about before I go - they're doing a gold ribbon kit giveway at the ribbon girl here to mark the fantastic achievement of team GB! woo hoo!!!!


And the colour and create magazine from the scrapbook stamp society is now available to order here.

Thats all for now - back tomorrow without todays problems I hope!

Hugs
