Gone Too Long

Hello my lovely bloggers I feel like I've been away forever! Working over the weekend, in meetings all day on Monday, 2 days (Tuesday and Wednesday) away at my Mothers and I'm getting withdrawal symptoms from blogland! I never thought I would miss colouring in and cutting out so much LOL!
My posts will be fewer and further between for a while too, as I will be busy making 150 wedding invitations for my Nephews wedding, the eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed the new page that popped up a few days ago.
So, you get nothing from me for nearly a week then 'wham' 2 posts in 1 day!  (Sounds more like a bus than a Laurie) My MAWTT weekly DT post went up earlier this morning, scroll down to check it out.
Now I want to share with you a card that will just make a couple of challenges by minutes I think! LOL
Halfway through colouring this image 1 of my copic markers died on me so I had to change the colour of Tilda's dress which hasn't really worked out so don't look too close! I can't remember where most of the ingredients for this card came from, they have sat in my stash for so long but I do know the pink spotty paper is from a K & CO 6x6 pad and Tilda, her Frog Prince, the sentiment, the Doo Hickey lace border die and the chandelier garland are all from Magnolia, the flowers are WOC except the green rose is Prima.
The card was made using a sketch by the fabulous Rach who hosted her first ever challenge over at Friday Sketchers. FAB sketch Rach.
Just Magnolia are sponsored this week by Simon Says Stamp and both have a 'Anything Goes' theme - handy that, I can combine two of my favourite challenges in one card!
Cupcake Craft Challenge are looking for 'Pink Polka Dots' - Ladies look no further - you have found them! LOL and finally everyone at the ABC Challenge must think I'm illiterate as I keep entering their challenges and have missed the rules that clearly state you can combine an entry with a maximum of 4 other challenges - I  am finally eligable for their 'P is for Pearls' challenge - hooray I can read!
This post has turned into a bit a novel, I hope you are still with me because I want to thank you for stopping by to visit me, and to those that do, for commenting, Ladies you rock!
Love 'n' Hugs Laurie x
