Yay! I managed to combine 3 challenges today and finish making a birthday card for one of my daughter's school friends (whose party she is going to this Saturday).

First, I followed this fortnight's sketch #6 from Sketch and Stash Challenge blog, and rotated it 180 degrees. The ongoing challenge at SAS is to use your newest stash on your card. These Enchanted Lily stamps are the newest addition to my ever increasing stash of 'rubba', plus this is the first time I've used my new BG Sultry papers (which I got for my birthday a few weeks ago!).

Second, this week's ABC Challenge is 'G is for Glitter'. I've used glittery organza ribbon and glittered-up Lily's wings using a Sakura Gelly Roll Stardust pen, even though the photo doesn't show this! (It's so dark and wet here...back to winter weather!)

Third, Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #24 is 'Favourite Colour'. My favourite colour is PINK of course, and my all-time favourite card colour-combo is pink and green.

So sorry that I'm not my usual perky and eloquent(!) self. I'm not very well at the moment (on antibiotics again!) with a problem that has been ongoing for over a month - something that the docs haven't got to the bottom of yet! If the antibiotics don't make a difference this time, then it's off for some tests next week! Joy! I'm not sleeping very well too, and so I feel really knackered, and therefore I'm struggling somewhat to even make sense! LOL! So please bear with me!

Hope you are all having a scrumptious day, whatever you're up to.

TTFN, Sem x
