Lovely news…

Hello friends! Well, I received some lovely news yesterday that I have won 3rd place in the Desmet Designs challenge ‘For the Men and Boys’!!! So excited, and gives me hope!!

School is getting really intense at the moment, lots of last minute things to do before year end – I’m very glad that I have my crafting to come home to! Also looking forward to my birthday – two weeks today – as it marks the real beginning of the holiday as we are going in on the Monday to do year end!! Really can’t wait!!

Very proud of my baby girl today – she helped host a school Olympic sports event for over 800 children, and the feedback from some of my teachers that were there was very enthusiastic – she did us proud!! She also got to hold an Olympic torch, so it sounds like she had a really good day!

My card today was a birthday card for one of my teachers at school, and she absolutely loved it! It’s another Lili of the Valley stamp – they always get such lovely comments!


What I used:
Stamp – Lili of the Valley
Sentiment – Lili of the Valley
Papers – BoBunny
Roses – Wild Orchid Crafts
Coloured with Promarkers
Distress ink – Victorian Velvet

Papertake Weekly Challenge – Strawberries and Cream
Fashionista Challenge – Challenge #4 Winged Things
