My shining star

My shining star

Saturday 24 November 2012


Good Morning all - I hope you are well? I suspect I'll be a bit rushed today as the day of the school fair has dawned - but I've got my fingers crossed that things will go okay! Will let you know tomorrow! It was certainly looking pretty good when I left it last night.

Today I've got a card to share with you made with a lovely image from Crafty Sentiments Designs - their challenge this week is 'Thankyou' and so with all things bright and positive in mind I thought I'd go for a summery card!

The papers were a free stack from a magazine by wild rose studio. The image has been stamped then coloured with promarkers. The flowers were then added and a few extra butterflies plus the charm and sentiment.

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

CSD:craftysentiments Thanks (GDT)
pennyschallenges: Thanks
craftsandmechallenges: Circles
Creative Inspcinspirations: Case it - I used similar colours
TSBthestampingboutiquechallengeblog: Thanks
Twisted Tuesdaytwistedtuesdaychallenges: Thankyou
Divasdivasbydesignchallenge: Use 2 or more patterned papers.

That's all folks - hopefully I'll be back tomorrow brimming with tales of a fun school fair! oo and I've got a night out tonight too - will be visiting an old work colleague over in Preston for her annual birthday party - just two months late this time! Thanks for visiting!
