I should of posted this card this morning, but I've been super busy today with sorting out sponsor stuff for my challenge blogs, so only just got around to writing a post.
Before I get onto my card, I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who left me comments and/or emailed me about yesterdays post. It really means a  lot to me to have your support and all the comments/emails really cheered me up :)
I haven't heard anything from my anonymous commenter since I did that post yesterday, so she has obviously got the message ;)

Right enough of that, here's a card I made for this months By The Cute and Girly challenge. The challenge this month is "Fruity" and although I thought I had no fruity images or papers etc, I managed to find an image, paper and a fruity charm! Go me!! lol
Oh and before I forget, we gift certificates up for grabs this month from Simon Says Stamp and Joanna Sheen.

I found this image in my digi files from Bugaboo which was perfect for the challenge.
I coloured her up with a mix of Copics and Promarkers and added little bits of stardust stickles.
The papers are by Raspberry Road (I think?) quite appropriate for  the challenge now that I think about it. That wasn't actually intentional, I just noticed that just now lol. I chose the use these ones as this pad had the strawberry paper.
The crotchet flower is from Little Snippets which I added on top of a Prima bloom and some skeleton leaves which I found in my stash....never even know I had red skeleton leaves! (I also found some blue ones! lol) and I also added a little charm on top which I got from my BTC&G teamie Ger. I just snipped off the little hole at the top. The cute strawberry charm was also a gift from Ger (she's sooo good to me!!:)) Oh and some ribbon from my stash.

 If your wandering why I used wavy edges on everything......well, it wasn't supposed to be that way, but when I went to cut my card blank, my wavy cutter was on instead of straight and I didn't notice, so I just went with the wavy theme! lol

Thanks so much for stopping by and hope to see you join in with the challenge.
