Guess what ...?

I was very lucky to be picked to join in with the girls on the Crafty Creations Challenges as a DT member following their recent DT shout out. Ubber excited but have to get my head around Yahoo where we all meet up ..... I think it's an age thing but will get there in the end!

Well this week all the newbies have been asked to join in with the challenge to introduce ourselves (as it were) and the theme is a great one "Summer" and as I have just got back off my hols and didn't have much time to create, I whipped up this quick card.

Papers: Websters Pages
Marianne Design butterfly die
Cuttlebug "Happy Birthday" folder 
Sentiment: Pink Petticoat
Button & ribbon from stash
Scallop edgerabilities die
SU border punch

The "stick" for my pin wheel is made using a liberated (!) Starbucks stirrer which wasn't why I liberated a few of them but works well for this card.

I am also entering my card in to the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - emboss it
Whoopsi Daisy Challenges - 2 patterned papers

Well better get a move on as have to take Aaron to the opticians for a contact lens "putting in/out" lesson, having me hair trimmed and the grey hairs banished, the dog is off to the groomers and I suppose I better catch up with some house hold chores (yuk).
