I do hope all my lovely crafty friends around the county (especially Devon / Somerset, as these seem to be on the news quite a bit) have not been affected by these terrible floods at the moment - all we have had here in Sussex is lots of rain and the ground is very boggy and Whisper is looking like a 14 colour collie, rather than a tri-colour collie, when we come home after a walk !!!

I was very fortunate last week to win the wonderfully talented Brenda's Timmy Candy and i can't wait to start playing with it, especially the 'Salty Ocean' Distress pad, as i nearly bought it the other week, as i had used it in a class at The Glitter Pot, thanks again hun.

Today's card is using a stamp, that i bought a couple of weeks ago, i have seen a couple of people using it and liked the effect, i'm hoping you like, what i have done with it ?, i've teamed it up with Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics' spotty lilac paper (i must confess, it's the only colour i have used from it), some very old Papermania flowery papers, Ribbon is from 'The Ribbon Girls', Sentiment LOTV and the shape tag is a punch from Stampin Up.

Today's Card And Challenges :

The Ribbon Girls - where Novembers Challenge is 'Shades of Purple / Lilac' - i prefer this colour to pink, so thank you.

Joanna Sheen - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes, except Christmas'

Moving Along With The Times - where the Challenge is 'Let's Go Dotty'
