Ashleigh's Birthday

Afternoon all
and once again I'm sitting here listening to the rain!! Hope your week is going well so far. I am having quite a good week, done lots of little jobs and managing to get a bit of craft time every day too!
Unfortunately though I'm still in pain from having my tooth out last Friday-am beginning to get a bit worried now as its been four days and wasn't expecting it to go on this long :(  I have no idea if it's normal or not!
Anyway, onto my card and today I have made a card for my Niece's birthday early next month-she's studying Textiles at Uni so thought this image from The Paper Shelter was perfect! I won it from a blog challenge and have kept it till now to use for her. I used a green backing paper from a pad by the Paper Cellar called Vintage Classics and the other papers were from my stash. I coloured her with my promarkers and added some lace, buttons, punched flowers and a cute little pair of scissors charm that I found in the 99p stores!! Hope you like her.

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:

The Crafty Pad challenge 195 - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine challenge 60 -  Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter challenge 88 - Anything Goes
Inky Impressions challenge 83 - Lots of Layers
Shopping our Stash challenge 76 - On sale or best deal (lace-end of roll so got double!!)
Card Makin Mamas challenge - Anything Goes

Well that's all from me for now-off to make the curry!

Until next time then
