Well its the first week of the summer holidays and my thoughts are with those of you who are at home with the kiddywinks for the next 6 weeks...I'm taking the easy option and staying at work lol! I have got time booked off next week and also the last week of August so I won't be working all the time...hope you all get a peaceful time at some point so that you can craft!

Ooooh errrr Misses...I really, really, really struggled with this card for todays new challenge at Cupcake....my gorgeous teamie Sari chose the theme and she really does SHABBY SPARKLE as it should be done...me...I always struggle to bash up my design papers and I have only recently got the hang of using glitter on my cards...I hate the stuff...it goes everywhere!

You know Donna, this is the perfect image and you put the colors together so very well as usual. Those are darling flowers. I love the lace you added - gives it that wonderful elegant feel for a fairy. I hate the summer because it's hot...LOL! But I don't have kiddies so at least there's no having to entertain them. Good you get some time off to bask in the sun. I just love your cards.

Such a pretty card. I wasn't sure what shabby sparkle is but this is definitely it! I've just invested in some of those LOTV squares for my Christmas cards - I think they are brilliant and your card shows them off to their full potential! Hugs, Lesley
