LOTV Goes All Girly & Challenges

This week has really flown past and today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge Blog.
This weeks theme is One for the Girls, my kinda card!!!
For my card I have used "Feather Boa" from the Party Girl range. For all you lucky enough to get to the NEC, I would highly recommend this one, a pleasure to colour.
She's been coloured with Promarkers and I've added Crystal Stickles down the centre of her Boa. Chequered paper is again Jack & Jill and the other is a piece of scrap. Used the Field of Sky Background Stamp and again added dots of Stickles & Perfect Pearls. MS Butterflies dotted with White Inkssential Pen, a mix of Flowers and Ribbon from stash.
Lots of Sparkle on this one, but when don't I add a touch of Stickles.

To everyone going to the NEC This weekend, have fun. I can never seem to get there as it always falls over Daniels Birthday but one day it will happen. Drooling over all that rubber, not fair lol.

Heres a list of challenges this card fits into;

Flutter By Wednesdays - Open Challenge
Anything Goes Challenge Blog - Letter B (for Boa)
Creative Inspirations - Glitter, Glamour, Girlie
Scrap Creations - Favourite Technique (colouring and blending)
ASFOS - Relish to Embellish
Incy Wincy Designs - Anything Goes
Creative Stamp Friends - Favourite Stamp (background stamp, used a lot over the years)
ABC - G for Glitter

Apologies for my lack of visits and posts. Seems with the kids off and being away last weekend its all catching up and my computer/craft time is very limited.
Away again this weekend so hopefully all back to normal next week. No celebrations, No Birthdays and hopefully not a lot of housework

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I do appreciate all the lovely emails I have received about Daniel. I do hope I've not missed anyone out and replied to you all.

Enjoy the rest of your week
Happy Crafting
