Very pink, a candy winner and oops!!!

Another gorgeous day here today and what am I doing, making cards as I have so many to get done for Crafter's Companion. Hope the weather lasts as we are off out visiting tomorrow. I decided to take a break from my DT cards and make something else and here it is. My card features one of the gorgeous Sassy girls from Sugar Nellie coloured with Promarkers. I tried the ditty background for the first time as I have seen this quite a lot lately and thought it would be fun to try it. The papers were a Birthday pressie, Kars Country Rose and boy are they pink or what! I used an MS border punch, Marianne leaf die, X cut butterfly punch, Craftwork cards sentiment and various flowers. The fab sketch is from The Sugar Bowl and I would like to enter the monochrome challenge at The Crafty Pad and dying to diecut at Marianne's Design Divas.

Ans the moment you have all been waiting for which is the winner of my Birthday candy and it is.....
That's you Lynn (Delphinoid). Please e-mail me your address and I'll pop your goodies in the post to you. Don't despair if you haven;t won any candy from me yet. I'm off to America before Christmas and I'm sure to come back with something lovely to give away.

Lastly, look what happened to me Friday night. Reaching to get something from the back of a shelf in my craftroom and down came packs of embellies which burst open all over the floor. This is just a small part of it and of course some of the embellies are tiny and being such a tidy fanatic I had to pick them up and out them all back in the right sections of the containers. What a job that was and not to be recommended.

Your card is gorgeous and very pink, lol. The papers are lovely and your embellishments finish it off beautifully.

Oops indeed! ... I might have picked up the bigger ones but i'm afraid to say I would probably have hoovered up the little bits!
