A quick post...

... to say thank you to Mrs A from Its an Alien Life for the beautiful brooches. I was one of her winners recently and you could choose anything - it was really hard to choose but I had a very plain grey dress that needed something so I asked for a brooch but instead of one I got loads!!!! I think some will be getting used on jackets and bags - yay!!!

Why not pop over to her blog and have a look at the fabby things Mrs A makes!!!

Also, I succumbed to my eldests wish for a sleep over and 2 boys are arriving in half an hour. It was supposed to be when my hubby would have been on nights so he would be oblivious to whatever shenanigans would have been going on but with his injury he's home and he's not good with kids running wild - so I've told him I'll take him to his mums if he moans - lol!!

So to calm my nerves I've quickly made a card for the challenge over on MSE:

The paper was free from a magazine. The image another freebie from Bugaboo that I have coloured with pro-markers and added some sakura glitter pen to the centre of the flowers. The sentiment is from craftwork cards and ribbon recycled from stash.

I'll pop off to see if there are any other challenges I can enter it into:

Crafts 4eternity - anything goes
Prairie Fairy - April showers bring May flowers
Papercutz - anything goes
Digi doodle - anything goes
CES - photo inspiration

Wish me luck for tonight - gulp!!!

Thanks for looking xx
