I'm dead chuffed!!!

Woo hoo! Evening all! As you might be able to tell I am a little bit pleased with myself! If you cast your eyes to the right you might notice a shiny new badge....yes, I was picked as a Creative Cottage Favourite for my buttons and bows card!! Woo hoo! A big thank you to the ladies over at the Creative Cottage, that really made my day! Click the badge to see the fab post!!

So, how does one celebrate?? If one is a crafter then one goes shopping!! I headed back over to the Creative Cottage Blog to hunt for some more stash to buy! You should check out their digi images...there are papers and sets....and they are all so gorgeous! I bought the "Home Sweet Home" because I loved the colours and the cute little birdie!!

The Challenge at the Creative Cottage this week is things with wings, so here is my card:

See........I told you that the birdie is cute!! The DT have created some fab designs with wings...take a peek here!

I have used some basic pink backing paper to start with, which I've topped with some of the fab dotty paper from the kit. I have then taken all the other elements from the kit, using some 3D sticky pads to give the birdie's wings and tail a lift! Also in the kit you'll find a little house and a mailbox.

So, I can't believe its Wednesday already...where is this week going?? Tomorrow I'm off to the Mandarin Oriental in London, I'm staying there with Joe for two nights of luxury and I can't wait....I'm very excited about this!!

Another thing I am a tad bit excited about is some experimenting that I've been doing with my hand drawn images....I do enjoy doddling and have used some of my scanned hand drawn images on my cards before. Today I took it a step further and created my first digi image.....its far from perfect, but I'm still excited about it! Here is a card that I've created using the image:

Yes, I made a cupcake!! The lines aren't quite as defined as I'd like them to be, but I am happy for a first attempt!

Anyway, I'd better go and get packing (yes, I like to leave things to the last minute!!). Thanks for stopping by my blog today.
