3 Chalenges, 1 card

Good morning ladies (and men if there are any out there), I have had a fab few days this week, first it was my baby's 4th Birthday and her little face just lit up when she saw all the pressies she had asked for, nothing can beat that :), then I got a card in the post from Lucy who is in the Just cards Yahoo group, all the way from India! Lucy if you read my blog, I have absolutly no idea who you are lol, but a huge thank you for thinking of me:) and to top it all off, I got a lovely Birthday card from Stef along with some gorgeous papers and......6 copics!! wow was I a happy girlie :D :D
Then I sign in to my blog today and that stupid birthday cake is right in my face telling me that I will be 30 in a few days!! Why did I put it on my blog?? I don't want to be 30!!, I want to stay in my 20's forever lol. What a depressing thought :(
Okay enough of my moaning and on to todays card. This one is for 3 challenges, Cute Daisy May's challenge this week is brown and pink as is Cute Card Thursdays and I used the great sketch at Sketch Saturday.

The papers I have used are EK Success and Magenta. The Whiff Of Joy image I got from Lorainne (coldwaters). I coloured with copics and brown ink from an ink pad because my brown ran out half way through. I only have a few distress inks and not a brown one so I just dipped my copic that had ran dry into an ordinary ink pad and used it like a pen, worked a treat :) I also used the same ink pad on the swirls and the brown flower which were all white. The swirls were from Linnie which she cut with her Cricut. Everything else is from my stash.
I hinted to Barry this morning that I really needed a new brown, red and skin coloured copics and he finally gave in to me and gave me some money to get some for my birthday, so I will order them today and hopefully have them in the next few days :)
I have nearly got my blog candy together. I ordered some stuff the other day for my candy but I'm not sure how long it will take to be delivered because of the Easter holiday weekend. As soon as I have it I will let you all know whats up for grabs:)
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you are all having a great day.

Lora xx

30?????? Honey, let me tell you, you DO NOT want to stay in your 20s' you DEFINTELY want to get to your 30s. 30-35 are the best years of a woman's life. Trust me. Been there, done that!
