My 'lucky dip'

Hello all,
I hope that you are all well and enjoying the weekend.
I have been very busy the last few days pottering about in my craft shed-I'm making the most of the last days of my summer holidays which once again are coming to an end - I have so loved having so much craft time and just wish my numbers would come up on that lottery so I could do it always. I get so miserable at this time as I dread going back to work, but am trying to console myself with the thought that the next holiday isn't so far away though!!
I decided I would do a bit of a 'lucky dip' with all of my products and use whatever I pulled out of my stash. First was the image, so without looking I put my hand into my spares tin and pulled out this cutie. The papers I selected were Papermania Bellisima. For the embellishments my lucky dip produced the butterfly punch and flower edger. The only things I chose deliberately were the flower punch and Martha Stewart corner punch as I felt it needed a little something else. The image was coloured as always with my Promarkers and I added a little glossy accents to the flower on the image and some blue pearls.
So, here she is:

I would like to enter her into the following challenges:

Sister Act challenge # 71 -anything goes
Simply Create Too challenge # 68 - monochrome madness
Creative Fingers challenge # 46- anything goes
Glitter n Sparkle challenge # 99 - use some butterflies
Suzy Bees Bloomin challenge # 43 - anything goes
Bearly Mine August challenge - anything goes
Butterfly challenge # 12 - summertime butterflies
The Sisters of Craft  August challenge - anything goes
I Love Promarkers challenge # 233 -sketch

I'm off now for a well earned coffee. Thank you so much for stopping by today, take care and until next time.
