Hi everyone,

First of all a very warm welcome to my new followers, and a huge thank you to you all for your lovely comments.  I so look forward to receiving and reading these.  Thank you!

I have a card to share today which I have made for one or two Challenges.

I have had such fun making this card.  It has been so exciting because I was so fortunately to be the winner of the Lovely 'Love and Live Crafts' Challenge and was given a voucher to spend in their fabulous Shop.   I am still reeling from the excitement.  It is very rare I win anything, we can not even get one number on the lottery!  So, I spent nearly all day Sunday just playing with my new goodies!  And, this is the result.

Image:  Little Darlings stamp, coloured with Copics and lots of Stickles
Machine Stitched
Rose from Wild Orchid Crafts
Doiley, pearl hearts and Cheesecloth from EBay
Poppies, Stickles, Chrysanths, Seam Binding and pearl string from 'Live and Love Crafts'
Papers:  Maja Snowflakes and The Perfect Christmas Tree from 'Live and Love Crafts'

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:
Live and Love Crafts Challenge - Christmas
Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge - Pearls and Flowers
Crafts and Me Challenge - Reds
Stamp and fun = Creativity Challenge - Christmas
Papertake Weekly Challenge - anything Goes

Thanks for looking,
