Oops should have gone to Specsavers!

Good morning to you and a Happy Sunday.  I had a lovely time yesterday at The Great British Craft Event at Craftwork Cards so nice to be surrounded by crafters as none of my friends craft.

Today I have a card that I did for next week's Paper Shelter Challenge but I hadn't read the remit properly so I ended up doing another!  So I may as well share it with you today:

I really enjoyed doing this one, I always love colouring the Paper Shelter images too.  This one has been coloured with Copics and Prima Pencils.  The papers are all digital M Mullens I Am Enough which are available from The Sweete Shoppe wow check them out if you love digital papers the choice is amazing.  I used my Spellbinders Edgeabilities for the border, Dienamics Stitched Rectangle Stax, Memory Box Corner Bow, Cheery Lynn Large, Medium and Petite Rose and Impression Obsession butterfly.  Ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl and the sentiment tag is LOTV.
Here is another view:

Challenges I would like to enter:

Di's Digi Designs - Spots and Dots
Suzy Bee's Bloomin Challenge - Ribbons and Bows
Sweet Stampin' - Stitching real or faux
Delicious Doodles - Use Ribbon
Creative Knockouts - Birthday
Digistamps 4 Joy - Add Ribbon

Its pouring down buckets here as I am typing I think the forecast for today is pretty miserable. Unfortunately its housework day here and hopefully a bit of crafty time but we will be seeing Dave's grandchildren later which is always lovely, I hope you have something nice planned. Thank you so much for looking today, take care xx
