A Huge Thank you To Challenge Blogs & Bloggers !!!!






First let me say that this card would never have been possible had it not been for some wonderful challenge blogs here on Blogger that gave me the opportunity to use stamps, embellishments, die cuts etc etc that I would possibly never have purchased. 

My thanks for this card goes to Bizzy Becs Store Challenge ( I won the beautiful Italian Flourish doily die) Sir Stampalot Challenge blog hop ( I won the amazing little flower stamp ( part of a whole collection) that is under Tilda's feet.  My Sentiment ( MSE friendship collection)  I won from Simon Says Stamps by making a card for a sick child.  The beautiful Prima Butterfly I won in a candy, The Raffia strands I won from Lillian Childs in her lovely candy.  Where do I stop.  My image came from a mingle swap over at Magnolia's Yahoo Group.  

I've been crafting now for 2 years and the generosity of Challenge Blogs and individual Bloggers is amazing. So Thank you all so much,  you'll never know how much I appreciate all your efforts week on week to motivate and enthuse .

Anyhoo!!! that's enough soppiness from me !!! lol.   As stated this card was made from the above.  I thought I would enter it into the challenges that gave me the ingredients and the Motivation.  So without further ado here they are:
Sir Stampalot Challenge:  Anything goes this month
Bizzy Becs Store Challenge:  Would like to see frames and borders My frame is around sweet Tilda and my border is self made using two different papers.
Simon Says Stamps and Show:  Would love to see a Flourish this week.
TOMIC Challenge:  Would love to see you create an Easel card this week
Crafty Cardmakers (Spotlight Challenge):  Would like to see Masking, I've masked two stamps, Tilda and the little grass and flower stamp.

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you all have a wonderful day/afternoon/evening where ever you are.

Hugs
