Flower Girl


Firstly i must apologise, if i have been behind on commenting, but i have been struggling with my migraines again - hopefully it's just a glitch and i'm hoping my accupuncturist can put me back on track.  Yesterday we went to 'Whalefest' - which was all about Whale Conservation and moving forward to try and release them from the likes of 'Seaworld', and i got to see 'Gok Wan' and H got to see 'Steve Backshall' (for those not familiar, it's the guy who does 'Deadly 60).

I'm using a new image to me - Penny Black 'Flower Girl / 40-056', the papers are: First Edition - 'Spring Drop', i've used my : Dienamics - 'Fishtail Flags' again and i'm so glad i bought them, the sentiment is: LOTV, lace is from: The Ribbon Girls, flowers are punched using: Fiskars Punches, pearls are from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are:

Allsorts  - where Challenge No: 250 is 'Pretty In Pink'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Mother's Day / Special Girl'

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where the Challenge is 'Lace And Pearls'

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 - where they are up to sketch 'SSW2 -09' and another fabby one too

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Bingo' and i've gone for : Lace, Punched Shapes and Flowers

In The Pink - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Mother's Day / For A Special Lady'

Stamping Sensations - where the Challenge this month is 'Pretty In Pink'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would kindly like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x

Hi Sam, sorry to hear of your migraines nothing worse I've suffered from them for years. I'm jealous you saw Gok Wan I love him to bits on TV and love how he loves every women's figure type and build. Your card is super cute and I love this sweet image and your pretty array of pink this is a great Mother's Day card. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

A really pretty image and card Sam, it's on of my fav PB sweeties and it's just perfect for our Pretty in Pink theme.

Thanks so much for joining us at Allsorts challenge this week.

Hope the migraines ease, I get them regularly since a child so cant totally
identify, they are one of those things that you have to experience them to understand.
