... because it's Friday - it's almost the weekend - AND I'm off to my very first Craft Event tomorrow at Happy Stampers North West, Port Sunlight and if any of my lovely blog friends are attending I'd love you to send me a comment so that we can perhaps meet and say a proper 'Hello' instead of a 'cyber' one! LOL. I'm so excited wondering what's in store with all those fabulous suppliers under one roof, hopefully demonstrating their fantastic products.

To top my good mood I have just noticed I've been showcased at Less is More! Arrrrgh! Yes Less is More challenge have awarded me a badge, which I'll be displaying proudly on my blog (errr that is once my techi son gets home from school to remind me how to do it!) I'm tickled pink! It's the one to have and I've been trying very hard over the weeks and at last my extremely simple card has done the business! Speechless! Yippee!

Anyway onto my card for today which is a combined challenge for Retro Sketches and Colour Q. Now this should have been black, white and turquoise, which is my favourite colour ... but my printer threw a wobbly when it printed my paper so with some ferocious head scratching, tutting and a few expletives I adapted to a different shade of blue.

Card Recipe:

Image: Fancy Florals from Clearly Besotted
Papers: Pink Petticoat
Button & Twine from my stash
Gems from my Crafty American Auntie
Cuttlebug Swirly embossing folder


I'll let you know how I get on at Port Sunlight but may be missing out on some crafting tomorrow plus my parents are here on Sunday so may have to get up extra specially early to join in the weekend challenge fun.

Enjoy your weekend and catch up soon.
