1 Card for 3 Challenges & More News, CAN MY LIFE GET ANY BETTER

Afternoon Ladies, I cannot believe we are at Thursday already, nearly the weekend, how great is that.  Thank you all so much for your kind wishes yesterday, your support and words are greatly appreciated.  I was stuck in the shed for about 3 hours, and lost internet connection, just as well I have music, heat and off course all my craft things....I put the time to good use off course, and was wondering where my Shed and I were going to end up, LOL.

This card is for 3 challenges, 1st for Cute Daisy May, who wanted to see Christmas Red, the Elf  (how great is this image) was a freebie over at Cute Daisy May last week.  I want to share more news Linnie has asked me to be a Guest Designer on Cute Daisy May, I just love these images, they remind me of reading the Twinkle when I was a wee girl... the papers were free in one of the craft magazines, I have had such a great time using these papers this year, they usually just get left in the magazines and never looked at again....shame on me, the embellishments were in my stash, I also want to enter this card into Incy Wincy Designs, Challenge 19  who have an "Anything Goes" this week, there is a sketch to follow, but you don't have to use it.  I am also going to enter this card into Cute Card Thursday No.88 which is "Snips & Snails & Puppy Dog Tails" and as the name suggest a card appropriate for a younger boy.....Well I have already ear-marked this card for my grandson Tommy's friend Jamie, who comes to stay most weekends and is just such a cute, cheeky wee boy........ Hope you like this girls, I have some more to post later on, and I have been very busy with my DT projects, the only hint I am going to give you is that I am again covered in paint......and my daughter's engagement party tomorrow....I hope I get it off...LOL. Love to you all as usual my dearest friends. Hugs Avril xxxxx
