Hi everyone,

Please do read the whole post because I need a vote!  (You might need a coffee, its a bit lengthy!!!)

Well, aren't I a happy bunny!   You could have knocked me over with a feather when I found that I had won a challenge at   It is simply ages since I entered Challenges and to win like this is such a lovely feeling.

SO - it does not end there.  Now I apparently qualify to enter the GRAND PRIZE CHALLENGE.  There are 9 winners of previous challenges (I think) and we all have been given a lovely Sketch to work to.    

I worked to the Sketch and carried both the design and the sketch to the inside of the card.   (There are no surprises there are there! lol)  Then because I had a couple of scraps of the Pion papers I had used left over I made a little altered gift bag to co-ordinate.  (Again no surprises! )

I used Pion papers (Ornament and Bird Song), image, shabby ribbon and sundry embellishments all from Live and Love Crafts

The lace, pom pom and pearls were purchased locally

You will see that the image is edged with Dutch Doobadoo Structure paste from Noor Designs Uk.  This structure paste has also been added to some of the flowers.  Then a sprinkling of Glamour Dust has been added.  The small Angel's wings have been tinged with glitter also.

The design and Sketch have been carried to the inside of the card:

I used up my scraps of the lovely Pion papers!

Apparently the next step is a public voting system to determine who wins the prize.  I would love it if you could find the time to pop over this lovely Challenge Blog at   If you feel I deserve the vote it would be brilliant if you could vote for me.  I must confess I am so excited! 

Thank you so much for bearing with me reading this long post and taking the time to look today.  I do so appreciate each and every one of my followers and also all the lovely comments I receive.  They really keep me going, and sometimes are the highlight of my day.
