Party Zara!

Good Evening Everyone, 
What a week! I've been on a school trip to Magna - which was brilliant, two sports days (I was helping out at both so scoring the teams!), a cricket match,rainbows, dancing and a trip sledging at Exscape with Cubs and I've just dropped Tom off for a cub camp tonight! Unfortunately I think it's going to pour down later, it's so hot and humid and we're forecast storms! Oh yes, and I have a frog living in my greenhouse!

I haven't had time to do any crafting this week (so behind with all my DT work...ooops!) This is a card I made for my Sister in laws 50th birthday a few weeks ago. I sent in the post in good time.......and it's still in the post! never arrived!
I've used one of the gorgeous girly images from DigiStamp Boutique. This is Party Zara.
I coloured her with promarkers and paper pieced her dress. The background papers are First Edition - Spring Feast.
I've used a die namics flower die and the pearl in the centre is from The Ribbon Girl.
I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
DigiStamp Boutique - Customer Challenge
Crafty Creations - Lets Party
Cute Card Thursday - Pretty Papers
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoes Challenge - Layers

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog and for all your lovely comments. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Well you are certainly a busy little bee Lorraine. This is a great birthday card. The postal service in our part of Oxfordshire is not very good. The number of cards I have sent that never reached their destination is appalling. But it's such a shame your sister in law didn't get this lovely one. Hugs Christine xx
