Sneaky Peak plus Gingham and Ribbon, how good can life get!

Morning my lovely friends, well yesterday was a painful day, and once again, the night has been long, not sure what I will do in the early hours, once I have watched all the episodes of 24.

Today it is my turn for a step by step at Imagination Crafts, and as this is my very 1st attempt at doing one, I hope you will all pop over and see my project, just to tease you, here is a tiny little Sneaky Peak, (how naughty am I)? Also whilst you are over at the Imagination Crafts blog, scroll down and see the other marvellous step by steps, that my DT buddies have done so far....

Sneaky Peak for my Step by Step, you can see the whole project 
at Imagination Crafts. Go on, pop over, you know you want to..

Just to prove that I love you all, I made this card over the weekend, before I realised that I had been picked as a Top 3 and a Winner of the Pink Gem Designs, challenge. last.   I have been wanting to win this challenge for years and years, and have finally done it, so I picked a few newer images to play with this week...however for this card, I have used an image that was already in my possession.  The challenge at Pink Gem Designs CH#121 is Gingham (Ribbon and/or Design Paper)


Someone posted on FB yesterday that their was only 199 days left until Christmas, so I guess there is now only 198..how depressing is that, LOL...however I am now making progress in getting mines started.  I hope you like this one..

Before I go on to enter this card into challenges..I would like to let you know that there is a new Facebook page for Whoopsi Daisy Fans..would be lovely if you would come and join us.  Thank You.
