New Challenge Catch the Bug

Hi Everyone

My friend (Norma) and I are spending our last few days together as she leaves for ther UK on Monday night, I have so loved having her here for two months, we have shopped, gone to art and jewerly classes together, had fun in my craft room getting ready for the craft fair (oh it was canceled but hey ho the fun was good)  had lots of delish meals out with our hubbys and laughed so much it made us cry lol, oh lots of shopping too, I shall miss them both.

 Norma is now having a pre-run packing, somehow I don't think it is all going to fit she says giggling but Brian will take the remainder for her when he goes to the UK in April so while Norma does that I shall tell you about a new challenge over at Catch the Bug.

Anything Goes Challenge

For my card I did a Valentines theme with this scrummy image called Ava and Decon Love Word

You find find this image HERE.

I coloured it with copic and prisma and used Bo Bunny Love papers inked with Victorian Velvet distressing ink, the hearts I cut on my cricut, the little red heart was from a peg in my stash, flowers from W/O, the sentiments are computer generated. I finished with pearls, pins, lace and ribbon.

You can find some super images for Valentines and other occasions over at the Bug Store so go on have a bit of retail shopping.

Challenges I would love to enter.

Delicious Doodles - All Loved Up

Secret Crafter - Hugs and Kisses

Allsorts - Free and Easy

As you all know for the past two months I have been a guest designer for Catch the Bug Challenge Blog and
I am so excited to tell you that Tammy DT coordinater has asked me to stay on, well you do not have to asked me twice and I jumped at the chance, I have always wanted to be a DT for these super images that Jodie draws, so excited.

Thanks for stopping by my place, its so good to see you again, have a great day all and I shall see you all later.
