Jean's Birthday

Good morning everybody. Sorry I haven't been posting lately. I had 3 days off at the end of last week and as Chris was off too, we went out everyday so no time for cards I'm afraid. :(

I had a lovely time.  Wednesday me and mum went to see The Dancing on Ice Tour.  We loved it.  The show the professional skaters put on was fantastic.  Friday Chris and I went walking in The Chadkirk Chapel Estate in Stockport, Saturday we went to Quarry Bank Mill and Sunday Little Moreton Hall.  We have just joined the National Trust so no doubt we will be spending many weekends now out and about.  I'll have to start crafting in the evenings, if I can stay awake after a day at work.

Anyway enough waffling, back to today's card.

I have used this fabulous stamp by Lili of the Valley - Glamorous Gardening
and coloured with Promarkers
Backing Papers - Dovecraft Sugar and Spice
Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly
Sentiment - Whimsy Stamps
Gems and Beads from stash.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
I love Promarkers - Floral Image
Lili's Little Fairies - Diamonds and Pearls
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

Just before I go, don't forget you still have a week to join in with The Nutcrafters Challenge.  It is a nice and easy one this time ANYTHING GOES.  The rules have now changed and you don't even have to use a Nutcrafters image any more, though we would love it if you do.  I'd love to see some of my blogger friends joining in.

Looks like you had a super time - those photos are super. Love the way your matting panel beneath the image looks as if it's a doorway with a bead curtain through which she's just stepped. Her necklace is a lovely touch.
