Quite a few Challenges


Hi girls. I am really pleased you have called in on my blog. I appreciate you taking the time and I hope you enjoy what is on offer. I hope you are fit and well, and that your crafting juices are flowing.
You may remember that I made a wedding card a few weeks ago to send to the daughter of an old next door neighbour who now lives in New Zealand. Well the whole family live in and around Christchurch and as you can imagine we have had a worrying few days wondering about them after the earthquake. The good news is that we have managed to make telephone contact and they are all OK. They say the place is devastated and not a great place to be at the minute with all the aftershocks. There are so many people who are in such terrible circumstances at the minute. We are so fortunate here.
Well on to more pleasant things. My card today is being entered into five challenges (something of a record for me). I have followed the sketch for Friday Sketchers, the theme at A Spoonfull of Sugar is "Birthday Wishes", Stampin for the Weekend wanted "Monochrome", Tip Top Tuesday wanted "Bling it on" and Delicious Doodles had the theme "Glitz, Glam, Shimmer and Bling". I have used Magnolia's "Tilda with a Small Gift" and coloured this beautiful Tilda using Copics. The papers are downloads and the pearls, stickles, glitter and pearls are all from my stash.
I hope you like this card but even if you don't I would love it if you could find time to leave a comment letting me know what you think. Constructive criticism is welcomed as well.
Enjoy your blogging and crafting and stay safe and healthy.
