I'm in a little bit of shock at the moment, as i don't normally win anything and just lately i have and i'm so excited and pleased - i would also just like to thank them all too.

1) Got Top 3 at Stamptacular Sunday for Sun Dried, thank you ladies
2) Won a blog hop prize at Papersundaes for Tender Showers
3) Then yesterday i found out i had won a small surprise candy in Mariannes  fabby holiday candy draw

With todays card i have used my new EKSuccess Daisy punches (that the girls recommended at The Glitter Pot, because although i love the Wild Orchid Flowers - i seem to have to make boxes for the cards !!), i then had a bit of a problem with the daisies not knowing which size circle to use for the middles - so i emailed the lovely Debby who came to the rescue, thank you.

Right on to todays Card and Challenges :
