Sophisticat Challenge No. 8 Pink, Brown & Flowers

Well Monday has come around so fast girls, I am still in a whirl from the weekend I had a fantastic day out with my girls and dresses were bought, but then there was a mad rush to get out to the wedding, picture the scene, Nikki cutting my hair, Mhairi putting on my make-up wee John was running around, Sinead was talking to us, all in this wee bedroom and then the Taxi started honking its horn........pandemonium.......that is what it was, I just wanted to go to my bed, but my god and I glad I did'nt, the Wedding was wonderful, it was a Mining Museum, in one off the local villages, "Red and White" was the theme and honest girls, the only nights out we have had recently have been funerals, so this was just great............I did not get to SECC yesterday, I was in so much pain had to  have the day in bed, I was so disappointed as my TSV came and I wanted to make an ATC with it and enter into the QVC competition......also wanted to buy candy for my blog, on Thursday I did not buy anything exciting, just Cards and Envelopes, and basic for cardmaking, well I knew that I had quite a few things coming from QVC, and I thought I was going back yesterday.....I will find some Candy and put it on soon girls, watch this space.......

Now onto business, this is Week 8 at Sophisticat and yes "LIL OLE ME" choose the theme, I decided that everyone might be feeling Halloween and Christmassed out, so I chose a simple colour theme "Pink & Brown"," with added flowers" now I really enjoyed doing this and my fellow DT's got so behind me, thank you girls you have made me so very welcome into your world. I want you all to check out all the different project that my lovely friends have come up with and JOIN US this week, for something a bit different. also there is a prize for the winner given to us by the wonderful Julie at JB Crafting Supplies, so come on girls support us in this quite new challenge blog. Hugs to you all. Avril xxxx.

Hi Avril hope you're feeling better today. Sorry you had to miss the SECC yesterday. We had a great day - I left home at 6.30am and got home about 9.30pm!! My friend thought it wasn't as good as March. Seemed to be lots of beads! We bought some nesties but disappointed that only one of the companies that sell theirs cheaper was there. Looked at my stuff this morning and thought "is that all I bought" lol!
Great to see your DT card on Sophisticats. Love it.
