MAWTT Girls Just Wanna Have Fun! and MY blog hop winner

OK the first thing I'm going to do is announce MY winner of the MAWTT Birthday Blog Hop. Thank you all for for your lovely comments and I'm so glad that you all enjoyed the hop. Without further ado I will announce that the winner is...............

I'll send you an email Debbie to get your details.

Janice is the hostess this week over at Moving Along with the Times and she chose the theme 'Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!'.

I had fun with this one (I'm not quite a girl but I was once - lol). I usually don't add too much because I like to keep things simple, however, I went to town on this one.

My card blank is by Joanna Sheen. The image is by Delicious Doodles and is called Sunshine Gal. I coloured her with my Promarkers and used Glossy Accents on her specs. I cut the image out with my x cut guillotine and matted it on to bright pink card from Papermill.  The lilac spotty paper is by Dovecraft and I matted that on the bright pink card too. I used a Spellbinders Parisian border for the fancy edge and then more Spellbinders dies for the sentiment base and other embellishments. The beads I bought when Eric and I were in Australia in 2010 and this is the first time I've used them. Little crystal flowers are set in the centre of two of the embellishments and below the sentiment. I can't even remember buying these but they were in my stash!

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards - Summer Days
Crafty Catz Challenge - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy Challenge - Summertime
Sister Act Card Challenge 63 - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Summer Girls

I'm sorry that I haven't been around much, my eyes are still playing up and I'm spending as little time as possible on the computer. I can't believe that I can play a game on my laptop and my eyes stay open but I can hardly look at the computer screen or the TV and my eyes close. I'm fed up.


  1. This is just gorgeous with lovely girly colours.
