Hi Everyone

I hope you are all well.

Well, it's been back to work this week after having a wonderful whole three weeks off - yuk!

Had plenty to do though, as most of you may know I managed to get myself married :o) and here is a picture of us both as I promised to post at least one.

You also may have noticed that I've been playing around with my blog - Autumn is on its way so I thought I would use a nice autumnal theme - let me know what you think.

So, it's Tuesday which means it's challenge time over at Papertake Weekly and this week the theme for our challenge is "Flower Power," so we want to see your creations using something floral; it could be paper, an image or embellishments, it's up to you.

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is the one and only Ribbon Girl so if you want to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their store then make sure you get your entries in over at Papertake Weekly and as always, check out what the wonderful DT ladies have made to whet your appetite.

Here is my card:

The recipe for the card is below, but once again, I lost my little note that details the Copic colours I used - sorry :o(

Digital Papers:  Nitwit - Hoppy Hearts Collection
Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Gift Wrapped
Sentiment Stamp:  Lili of the Valley - Happy Circular Sentiments

And there you have it.

I hope you will come and join in the fun with us.

Have a great week.
