Lace and pearls

Morning girls
This week seems to have flown by, I can't believe the weekend is upon us.  I think I've lost a day or two somewhere along the line. Here we are at Friday already and another challenge on Totally Papercrafts but before I tell you about the challenge I've something else to share.
Yesterday I received a mahooosive box that I wasn't expecting and couldn't for the life of me figure out where it came from.  Once opened, guess what I found?????


I was gobsmacked and racked me brains thinking if I'd entered a blog candy or something but knew they wouldn't have my address etc.  Anway, I went to check the DT yahoo group for Sparkle n Sprinkle last night to find that they have now teamed up with Spellbinders - ie they will and have already designed stamps to fit their nesties etc. So, as a thank you all of us DT girlies got a grand calibur free gratis.  Now is that fantastic or is that fantstic.  I'm jumping for joy here lol.  All I need now is a lottery win to go on a spending spree!!!
So, now I've got all that off me chest I'd better tell you about our challenge this week.  It's a nice girlie one chosen by the lovely Carol

and we're sponsored by

I've used the gorgeous Sugar Nellie, isn't she just the prettiest little thing?  Coloured with copics, papers are Basic Grey, sentiment is Sparkle n Sprinkle, lace ribbon and pearls are from me stash.
