a card for you and some news....

Hi girls
A quick post from me tonight to show you a card I've made for my Mum and Dad.  It's their Golden Wedding Anniversary tomorrow but I've not gone for the traditional golds on me card.
I bought this fabulous image from Mo Manning a couple of weeks ago, absolutely perfect for it, well I think so anyway.

Isn't it brill?!!!  
I coloured with copic markers, papers are First Edition Desert Blooms.  The flowers were cut with my cricut plus I cut circle, cut it into a spiral and rolled it for their centres and added some glitter and beads too.  A Marianne die for the leaves, some lace, ribbon and gems finished it off.

Oh and the news!!  I nearly forgot about that.
Tomorrow is the launch for Diddydoodles monthly challenge.

So, if your wee ones like to craft alongside you then we'd love to see them:)
Nikky is also looking for some little designers aged 9 to 13 to be on the team 

Right, I'm off and running before me bum gets glued to the chair as I've still things to sort for tomorrow.
