A Little Chat & A 5 In 1 Challenge Card...

Good Morning...
I'm pleased to say I got another good nights sleep last night after a busy afternoon doing a bit of shopping with my mum, one of my nieces and my great nephew. Dad would be chuntering a bucket full about us being out spending money, oh how he hated to go shopping.
I treated myself to some gorgeous My Minds Eye christmas papers from The Range which I have stroked numerous times on previous visits & some new pj's and a dressing gown. I just love lazy mornings about the house in my pj' fact I am having one this morning!!
I am trying to keep my mum busy so she isn't just sat at home....we haven't gone back to work yet, a family friend and my lovely friend Joanne is keeping the shop running for us.
Well onto my card which covers the following challenges:-
1 - Squigglefly / Blue & Pink
2 - Cutie Sunday / Sketch
3 - Secret Crafter / Celebration
4 - Dare U2 Digi Stamp / Use Punched Shapes...Die Cuts
5 - Creative Card Crew / Celebration
I have used one of the new 'Shy Bears' images from Squigglefly together with 'Slightly Spotty' & 'Ecclectic Lurve' papers from Funky Fairy's Papercrafts. Pop over and check out the new 'Add A Splash Of Colour' kit together with the special offers section...

Gorgeous card hun, yummy colours.

Glad you had a nice day out, those papers look gorgeous I must say. I bought some new PJ's last week, some with long sleeves so they can keep me cosy in the chilly evenings and of course to lounge about in a morning, love doing that at times too.

Hope you are having a nice weekend.

Chat soon
