Morning everyone, not sure what the weather will do today but fingers crossed it stays dry as Sophie has a majorette display at the Royal British Legion Family Fun Day! The charity sale went really well yesterday...we took £22,000 which is our best makes it all worthwhile giving up a Saturday morning to raise this kind of money :)

I've been trying to join in the AC since they launched and this is the first week I have been able to's definitely my kind of challenge, I love sketches and I love recipes...perfick!

Here are the details of everything used on my card:
Card stock used : SU
Image: Polly Craft : Twiddly Wings Upturned Pot
Colouring Medium : Promarkers
Design Papers : Basic Grey 'Wisteria'
Embellishments : Stickles, Ribbon, Gems and Pearls all from my stash

Fantastic Card Donna, I love the colours and image. Hope the weather stays good. My dad was the President of the British Legion in Dundee before he died in 2005. They are a great bunch of people and I was often at events, where I had the biggest laughs ever....Hope you daughter enjoys her day. Hugs Avril xx
