Sketch Saturday #40

A very girly pink card today for Sketch Saturday. The whole card is made with the Smirk range from Trimcraft. I told you all I would have to resort to using my Daughter Rhianna's papers lol.

She came in today after being in town with her Dad and caught me using them. She was not a happy girl and told me I better not use any more! Think I better get some more papers for myself !!

I think I went a bit overboard with the pink but my 2 girls like it so I guess it will be good for a little girls birthday.

The only thing I added that wasn't Smirk was the little square pink gems, glitter on the balloons and lollypop on the image (I don't know if you can see it here) and some lace from my stash.

I think these papers are really good for little girls cards. Although I bought them to keep Rhianna out of my stash (quite ironic since it's me taking from her little stash lol) I like quite a few of them and most of them are either glittered or foiled. The little stamps are quite cute too. Rhianna has 5 of them, and the one I used here also belongs to her.

Well thats the card done, now I can tell you about my news.

I went and done some blog hopping today and noticed the winner had been announced over at One Stop Craft Challenge for challenge #17 so had a look and guess what........ I won!! I can't believe it. I made the card yesterday and it only took me about 5 minutes! I can't say I even like the card very much but I entered it anyway. I think I have learned now that even though I don't like something I make, someone else might.
I phoned Barry who was in town with my 2 girls to tell him I had won the challenge and the prize was some oriental stamps then put the phone down and went looking at other blogs, and noticed I had also won some stamped images from Donna's blog candy too!! She only had one candy but decided to pick 3 more people to give some stamped images to, and I was one of them.
How lucky am I? Two prizes in one day and my first blog award yesterday. Things are looking up, maybe I will win the lottery tonight. Ok maybe not since I don't even play it lol.

Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave me a comment to let me kinow you have been, even if it's just to say hello, I love reading them all.

Hugs from a very happy Lora x
