hop hop hop...

Good morning everyone, are you all well and having a great week?...I hope so...I did nothing at all yesterday as I had a rotten migraine...I hate them don't you, feeling sick and dizzy and all those dancing light, thankfully it has eased today and I only have the fuzzy hangover head thing instead, not fair considering I don't drink is it lol...anyway onto today's card which is for our monthly Mo's Digital Pencil Dreamteam's blog hop. our host this month is the fabulous
Alice
so you need to hop on over there to start at the beginning as you don't want to miss a chance of winning one of the two $5 store credits on offer to one of our commenter's...don't forget to leave everyone a comment to stand a chance of winning...Alice chose the lush theme of Pretty in Pink

you should have arrived at my blog from the amazing Debbie but if you didn't and want to join in start at Alice's...I chose this fantastic i_forgot which was a freebie but you can now get from Mo's Digital Pencil...I coloured this piece of cuteness with distress inks and teamed it up with some lush papers from the Glitz 6x6 paper pack-Pretty in pink pad, perfect for this challenge isn't it, I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and finished with some seam binding, pearls, buttons and a beautiful Prima flower

the fabulous sketch is from the the Cutie Pie Challenge and I'm also entering it for the Ribbon Reel Challenge...I don't often make easel cards because I hate photographing them as you never know which angle is the best do you...your next stop on our hop is the fab
Pops
have fun on the rest of the hop and don't forget your comments...I'm off out today for a bit of retail therapy and to help clear the mustiness in my head, then out to dinner with family tonight...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
