Good News

Hello everyone out there in blog land I am not posting a card tonight I just had to share my good news with you all, First I would like you to meet Poppy this is my new Grand-Daughter she is pesently 20 weeks and 10 inches long.

Second: I was back tracking my blog challenges as I have had loads of Internet Problems and it seems my computer doesn't like Dongles, anyway I went on Fat Pages and Cards with Attitude only to find I got a top 3 how neat is that.

Thirdly I was still back tracking and found I was a Daily Talent Spot for January 16th, I'm just so pleased but how can you share with anyone who doesn't have a clue what you're Talking about or are not interested? so I thought I would share it with everyone here.

Sparkle and Shine

Hello everyone I hope the weather is being kind to you all it's gone a bit windy and glum here in the UK, but at least it is dry nearly all the Snow has gone too did you all have a good week-end?
We has a bit of a hectic one (which is most week-ends now) it was my Grandson Ewan's 6 th birthday I don't know where they have gone it's flown by and we had a little tea party for him it was so nice for him to see all the family.
Over at OSCC if you didn't know it's a new challenge this week called Sparkle and Shine the lovely Sponsor is A Day For Daisies
What a lovely challenge and it's something everyone has got in their stash somewhere finding it is just another problem, I changed my mind so many times choosing how it would go but am so pleased with the end result (although I think Kate might scream when she hears) I did the daftest of things I cut and embossed my image with the gems on my Image hence the de-bossed look I also wanted to share with you for those from the UK is the bling on the card (the clear) is hand jewellery from the £1 shop not sure if the Pound world has it, now for my card I hope you like it too.

I have used the Sponsor Image which is called Pearls in her Hair (which I change to fit the challenge)
Spellbinders Labels Die (Largest)
Dovecraft coloured Gems
Hobby House Roses and bows
Papers are free from a craft Mag
Copic Pens
Gems for hand Art.

Here is where I have been inspired:
