1 Card for 4 challenges I HOPE

Evening ladies, I hope you have all had a great day, and anyone who went back to work, hope it was not too stressful.....after dropping Kenny off at his job this morning I spent a day in Portobello, a wee seaside town within Edinburgh....I trawled all the charity shops for books, (my other passion) and things to some bargains that will be revealed some day.   I spent some time in the craft shop there and was very good, did'nt buy anything, but I spoiled it by swinging by Dobbies and buying some papers and ribbons....I am such a bad girl....naughty Avril.....I managed to get this card finished, which I hope fits no less than 4 challenges, the Sketch is for Mojo Monday's Wk102, the image  (Sitting Willow)  is for the Whiff of Joy Challenge, that wanted to see BLING...Rosie Dees challenge wanted Neopolitan ice cream colours (Vanilla, chocolate & strawberry), the papers is a mixture of asparagus papers (sorry again) and the new papermania regency papers that I bought today, which go together really well I thought.. and finally Pollycraft challenge wanted to see "Furry Friends" on your project, so I added a Dawn Bibby puppy that fits the colour scheme, I also added a box of chocolates, well you cannot have Neapolitan Ice Cream colours and no sweets in sight, can you....LOL.  I hope you like this girls, and I hope I have not overstretched my imagination thinking that this card fits 4 challenges.....I am off to catch up with some off you, before this computer gets too hot and burns my fingers (not kidding about that, I think my Laptop needs an overhaul, as you get about 15min at a time before the keys burn your fingers....)   I cannot imagine how my life would be now without my laptop so hopefully it can be fixed, I bought it from QVC just coming up for 2 years ago, so a bit disappointed that it is giving me problems already...
