Good morning one and all...


Hope you all had a fabby weekend..It has taken me this long to get over mine lol..
What with parks, indoor play centres, Thomas land a wedding and a Baptism I needed to get back to work for a rest lol..

So as it is Wednesday that means a new challenge over at

And this week we would like to see 'PEARLS AND SWIRLS'

So here is my card:

Now this card has turned out much better than I expected (don't ya just love it when that happens lol!!)

This paper pack (cosmo cricket) was one of the first I ever bought and I only had some odd sheets left but as I have about 5 new pads coming soon I wanted to use up the odds and ends to make room!!!

Now the image is a Kenny K which you can get in store (whimsy stamps)

I have used a lot of things from Sew sweet this week... twine, heart buttons, ribbon, felt and heart pins!!)

I am also entering my card into:

Kenny K - anything goes blog hop

Cupcake craft (sketch 52!!

Allsorts - anything goes

The crafty Pad - lots of texture (card, paper, glitter, ribbon, felt!!)

Thanks for looking.. happy swirling xx
