We're 'Girly Girls!'

Welcome to my blog on this quiet (I hope!) Sunday morning! Today sees the start of our latest challenge over at THE CRAFTY PAD, where our theme is

'We're Girly Girls'

We want to see your cute, girly creations, with plenty of 'bling' and definately some pink in there somewhere too!


We are really lucky this week, as we have TWO sponsors, so twice the chance to win!
LOTV have kindly given us £10 voucher for their fabby store. 

AND L.R.Designs Digital Downloads with a £10 voucher for their fabby store!

I have used the adorable Lulu With Flowers from The Crafty Pad Designs for my card.

My papers are by Nitwit Collections and are from the One Birdie Lane collection. Lulu is coloured with Promarkers and clouds have been chalked onto the background before cutting with a nestie. I really went to town with LOTS of embellishments on this card, far more than I usually add to my creations, including handcut flowers, funky fibres, buttons, brads, pearls, grosgrain ribbon, glamour dust, and handmade posh stick pins too! Phew! I'm exhausted just typing it up!!! Lol!

Here's a close-up of my posh pins and a couple of other embellies:

I even decorated the inside of this one, as it looked daft with an entirely blank, white inside!

I am actually pleased with the result, and will enter my card into the following challenges:

We look forward to visiting your blogs to see your creations...thanks for looking.
