All Pink & Fish&Chips Babies

Good Morning bloggers and welcome to new followers. Oh! at last summer is here, Hubby and I have been busy shoveling twelve ton of gravel along the driveway and cutting the grass this last few days and we are feeling the aches so today we are having and an easy day and enjoying the sunshine. May it lasts.

So excited to have won a LOTV £10 voucher for my 'Peace in the garden' card in Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge and I already spend it. lol.

I came across Sugar nellie's blog and found the story of  the fish and chips babies 

I'm glad I did'nt throw the odd leftover wool out as I made good use for it.  I have made two and will have to wait till I go into the town to buy more wool  and keep me busy in the soon to be winter evenings. Here is the picture below.

Now for the card I have entered a few challenges.
Sugar Nellie image coloured with prismas
Backing papers, sorry I don't know the make as there are mixed
white cardstock
Ribbon from stash
Flowers and pearls from WOC
Leaf punch
MS butterfly punch
LOTV sentiment stamp

For the challenges I'm entering are
Sugar Nellie Bowl ~  Sketch & Butterflies (This is wierd as I made the card yesterday and it fits the sketch perfectly, lol)
In the Pink ~ 50 Shades of.....Pink
Divas  by Designs  ~    For a female
SFTW ~ Monchromatic
