Pretty Pastels..

Good morning everyone, hope you all had a great week-end, mine has been a bit up and down. My lovely daughter might be moving.. she is not only my daughter but my best friend too and I love seeing her everyday, I will really miss that :(  I have got a few months yet though, and I'm really pleased for her as she so deserves this opportunity.

We both went to the LOTV 10th Birthday celebrations on Saturday and had such a lovely time.  Must just tell you too, that my card for there 10th Birthday was in the top 5... boy was I excited, what a fabulous start to a week-end!!

We met the LOTV team and what lovely ladies they are, we picked up so many handy tips.. and lots of goodies fell into our baskets too.. and this lovely image on my card is one of them, it's from one of the new 'Art pads' called ' Beautiful Blooms', I glittered it all up and used perfect pearls dotted around for a little texture, I saw this on some of the cards on Saturday and it really looks so pretty. The card is for my Mum as it's her birthday next Monday, she'll be 87years young.. bless her:)

It's time for another challenge over at 'Papertake Weekly'.. and this week it's 'Pretty Pastels' it's self explanatory really, the fabulous team have made some beautiful cards, so do come and join in, also there is a lovely prize to be won every week too.
