She was my very first follower when I started blogging, and she has encouraged me so much since I started, she was the one who persuaded me to enter comps and then to apply for design teams. She is always there for me and I really do appreciate her so much. 
Ok lets get onto the new challenge over at Lovely hAnglar and Sweet Magnolia, the theme is GIRLS ONLY!, so cards and creations with only a girl image only.

Hi Lovelies, well its Thursday so that means its time for a new challenge over at Mo's, and this weeks theme is.....

Shaker card at MDUC

Hi lovelies! hope you are all well, quick post tonight as I am so far behind with everything that I am going take about a week to catch up! Alex is much better, still has a cough, but sleeping a bit better, not had an unbroken nights sleep though for a week, and of course now Maya is being all clingy and tearful, so no doubt she has picked up Alex's bug! Oh the joys!!!

OK quickly onto tonight's card, The theme over at MDUC is A shaker card, which I normally love doing, but I couldn't find my micro beads so had to order more, then I couldn't find my acetate so has to use gelatine sheets, then I dropped gesso on the front of the gelatine sheet so had to improvise and use tilda's snowflake to cover the mark!!!! It truly has been one of those weeks!

So here is my card, hope you like it, and I hope you take the time to join in the fun over at the challenge.

B is for.....

Good morning lovelies, gosh I am like a bus! nothing for a few days then two days in a row!! lol

It is time for a new challenge over at Mo's and this week we want to see your Mo's cards with the theme, B is for.....

Now after I made this card I realised I had gone a bit mad with the B is for... theme!! lol 

I have got a boy, a bow, a boat and blue!!! so I think I have more than covered the challenge theme eh??

I have used one of the cute little sailor boys from the set that you can buy Here.
The little boat was bought during the summer with the intention of pulling it apart to use the bits on other projects but I thought it sets the card off perfectly!
I hope you can join us, cause the more who take part the more prizes there are to be won!
