Truly Scrumptious #64 & Two Awards

Hi girls. A big welcome to my blog - it's great to have you here visiting. At the outset I have to give a "long post" warning since as well as my card I have two awards to acknowledge and pass on.
I made this card for the Truly Scrumptious Challenge where the theme is "Rocked Up Pink". They want us to create a card with pink as the prominent colour.
I have inked up Lili of the Valley's "Hello Cupcake" and coloured her with my Copics. The papers is an unknown I found in the bottom of my drawer. The flowers are from Wild Orchid and the gems are from my stash. The card has triangular wings which open out.

This second photo shows how the card opens out to show the background paper inside.
I hope you like this card and if you had a minute to leave a comment to let me know what you think I would be thrilled. I get so much help and encouragement from what you have to say.

Award # 2

I have been given this award by Kerryn over at The Crafty Goldfish - again a blog well worth taking time to browse.
I have to pass this on to those of my followers whom I most appreciate. Well to produce a list and risk missing someone out and causing offence is to horrid to contemplate. I have so many followers who have encouraged me since I started blogging and who regularly leave comments or send emails and cards when I am in hospital that you all know who you are. I appreciate each and every one of you so please take the award. If you want to email me or mention in a comment that you have taken it please feel free.

Well that's it. I hope that as you go into a new week everything goes your way and that you manage to stay safe and healthy.
