Card for Promarkers challenge

A good Sunday Morning to you all, I have had a Great Weekend so far, honest friends it could not get any better...I have been choosen as a Designer for the Tuesday Taggers and you all know how much I wanted that.....if you have not already followed or joined in the challenges they set, you must go over and check it all know that I do cards, but the Tuesday Taggers took me out of my comfort zone, once a week and that has been so good and challenging, which is what the challenges are meant to go on if you have not yet had a go, please can follow the link from my side bar. Also Winterwonderland have given me a Guest spot for the 1st and 15th of November, I just found this out this morning, and honest, if I could I would be doing "Cartwheels" round my living-room. As above if you have not yet joined their challenges, and I know that in July we don't really want to be thinking Xmas, but just think 5 months today, it will all be over for another year (scary or what!). Yesterday would have been my gran's 95th birthday and she was my greatest inspiration as a child and with everything in me I have endeavoured to be like her, she died 25 years ago in August, but she must have been around me yesterday, so thanks Gran for still being there for me.....

Also yesterday my hubby got me out in the Car for a wee while, 1st stop a Craft Shop in Livingstone, where I got my hands on the New Xmas Daisy and Danelion Stamps , and the Winters Tale papers..., then it was lunch for 3, as my grandson had to come too, our teenagers don't do childminding at the weekend....then off to "Hobbycrafts" where I got a new storage box for my ribbons.... it was great to get out off the house and see people, cars, shops.....LOL.

I still managed to get in a challenge card for Promarkers whose theme this week was Rose Pink and Lime Green, such fab colours to put together...most of my craft time the last 2 days have been doing my grand-daughters birthday cards which I cannot post until Wednesday as she has access to my blog (I also got some crafting goodies for her, for her birthday, so I will be making up a wee parcel to send her).

I hope you are all having as great a weekend as me, my friends, notice I have not even mentioned the weather...LOL, wellie day again......

Till later, I am off to catch up on all your blogs as I was so busy yesterday, sorry for that.

Much "Weekend" love

Beautiful card,
I to admit the weather hasnt helped with the kids holidays, shame isnt it,
I love my boys dearly but sometimes just wish they would occupy themselves, even if I bought a toy shop I still dont think they would be content, lol.
Have a super sunday,
