Challenges for today

Good afternoon ladies and any gents lurking around, we know you want to create too :-)

Today I have been busy in the garden planting all kinds of flowers and even managed to finish my window box’s but my luck was in when my friend rang and said TEA SHOP well you don’t have to ask me twice lol and to my surprise she asked me to show her how to make Christmas cards while my hubby is in the UK for a week (he’s goes next week) I was delighted and so we had a little shop for her and of course I could not resist a little shop for myself as she just had a delivery of new stash, groan says the purse or to my American friends wallet and we both came out very happy after tea, carrot cake and a little spend in the craft shop :-)

Onto my card which I made last night for my granddaughter who will be 9 years old next week, also she like's fairies and ballerinas and I just happened to have one which is one of Linnie’s designs, which you can find here ohhh don’t forget Cute Daisy May challenge while I am talking about Linnie as you get a pick of Linnie’s designs if you win the challenge.

I started using Squiggle Fly Sketch but then I got a bit carried away so I hope it will pass as I have entered it into their challenge.
I coloured her with H02 twinkle paints and Whimsy Stamps wanted water colours for their challenge this week so I think this will pass.

As she has wings I have entered her into SophistiCats challenge and to finish her off I added a ballerina charm which I got from Sassy Designs oh I do wish I had bought more of these as I just love them and lots of glitter and bling.

The sentiment on the inside was computer generated and I made it a pocket card so we can add some money, as she told me she is in desperate need of craft bling, as she puts it, awe so sweet.

Thank you all for popping by my place today and have a really good day all.
