A Big Thank You!

Good morning everyone hope you are okay today and enjoying the Olympics.  I am so happy because the synchronised swimming is on this week - yippee!

I was so happy when I found out that I had won Suzie's candy, she makes her own pins and they are so pretty - take a look at what I received:

She made the cushion too!  Aren't they gorgeous?  Thank you so much Suzie I just love them and I know I will find it so hard to actually use them!  Suzie makes the most beautiful cards take a look at her blog here if you haven't been before.

For my card today I have used a Paper Shelter image, I just love their images and could buy them all!

I have coloured The Beautiful Aerialist with Copics and Prismas. The papers are by Bo Bunny from the Alora Collection.  I have cut and matted her with my Spellbinders Nesties.  The flowers are made with my Tonic Punch.  The bow is made with a fab new die that I saw on Mary J's fab blog Where's My Creativity and loved it so much I ordered it! Its by Lil' Inker Designs.  I had to overlap it slightly onto the image as I had a mark on it from goodness knows what after I had finished colouring it!!  The skyline is MFT Dienamics die and I thought it made her look like she was flying high lol!!  The pretty jewelled spacer thingy majiggy is from The Ribbon Girl I added the pearl to the centre and coloured it to match.  Gems are from my stash.  I have added stickles to her collars and cuffs and flowers in her hair and used Mirri card because I want to enter The Paper Shelter Challenge which is Glitz and Glamour.  Challenges I'd like to enter are:

The Paper Shelter - Glitz and Glamour
Love to Create - Punches and Dies
Marker Pop - Bright Colours
Whoopsiedaisy - Diecuts and Punches
Dream Valley - Die Cuts and Punches
Do You Stack Up - Polka Dots
Bearly Mine - Sparkle and Shine

Finally, here is a picture of Harrison taken when we went to the zoo:

he's got chocolate lolly all round his face lol!  I have never seen a child eat as much as he does, my DH and I used to look on in amazement at meal times at how much he ate!

Well that's it from me for today. Thanks for looking I'll see you tomorrow and take care xx
