What a week!

Well, I have to say I've had a fun packed and very eventful week! You may have noticed that I haven't posted since last Tuesday which is a bit odd for me....well I was really lucky and mum whisked me away to Bath for a couple of days! I've had soooo many Birthday celebrations this year and Bath really was the icing on top of the cake - what a wonderful place....I actually wish I lived there (although I think I'd be very poor all the time!!).

Soooo...this morning I've finally had my oven door fixed (so I can start baking again!!) and I've been catching up with my card challenges.

After the no pink challenge at Sweet Stampin this week I decided that pink was the way to go this morning....with one of my favourite stamps....


This card features loads of my favourite things....pink, cooking, buttons, lace, stitching and of course a bit of bling! I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Inspired by a film - I've been inspired by all the cooking in "Julie & Julia"....if you haven't seen this fab film, you really should!

Simon Says Stamp - this cute layout is inspired by the sketch created by Dawny this week

CES Challenge - buttons - the more the merrier!

Passion for Promarkers - pink, pearls and lace.....to my dismay I only had one actual pearl (see bottom right hand corner), but I also fab these gorgeous pearly buttons! I've gone for paper lace punched using my Martha Stewart border punch and of course I love pink!! And of course my image is coloured with my Promarkers!

I've got one last Birthday surprise this afternoon (yes another one!!), my fab friend Alex is taking me somewhere....I have no idea where, but I have to wear a pretty dress!! I better go and get ready...I'll be back tomorrow to tell you all about it!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
