Loads of Challenges

Hello. Wow, it was nice to do a bit of crafting yesterday, I really needed it, as I find my crafting very therapeutic. It allows me to "escape", and that is exactly what I needed after the last week. Thanks so much for the messages of support I received on my last post, it means so much to me!!! The family is holding up, and getting a little stronger each day. From tomorrow we will have to start trying to get back into routine and start getting used to life without Anne. It was wonderful to have my Mom here this week to help me get through this time and be here for the kids. Thanks so much for being there for me Mom, I LOVE you with all my heart!!

So onto my card. I have entered it into a number of challenges which I will list below. I so enjoyed colouring this image, and I got to play with some of my new Copics which I got from Paola. She gives great service, so for anyone in SA who is looking to start buying some Copics, contact her and she will be able to help you out!! This image was stamped for me by another dear friend Sharon, thanks so much Sharon, I am making good use of the images you stamped for me!!

Here are the challenges I am entering my card for:

Just Magnolia - Anything Goes + Lace
Cute Card Thursday - Embellish it (I used Glossy Accents)
Colour Create Challenge - Purple, Blue & Silver
Paper Crafting Journey - Anything Goes
Wee Memories - Free for All
Sketch Saturday - Latest Sketch
Wags 'n Whiskers - Stitches
Sugar Creek Hallow - Paper Flowers, Vintage Lace & Bling
Catch the Bug Challenge Blog - Anything Goes
Anita Be Stampin - Layer it on Me

Thanks so much for taking the time to spend some time at my blog, I really am so glad you did!! For those that leave comments, "thanks" so much, I LOVE reading them :)
