I have made so many lovely new friends since I started blogging - there is such a huge & friendly crafting community out there that you never even know exists until you make the plunge!

So thank you to all my blog friends and followers, for all the comments you leave, for the advice you offer and the general friendship you so willingly give.

Today, it is Tracy's turn to set the new challenge over at An Oldie But A Goodie, & funnily enough, she has chosen


as the theme - had you guessed?

Please also remember to use something older than 6 months on your card when you enter our challenge.

Our sponsor again this time, is my regular favourite, Bugaboo and once again they are offering one lucky winner 7 free digi's from their on-line shop.

So my card today features a Bugaboo sentiment image which I love, cut out and mounted on Spellbinder die cuts, & the card finished off with 3 gems in the flower centres, these are my oldies.

The rest of the DT have excelled themselves on this challenge, so I suggest you check out their work before starting your own project.

Crafters Companion - Best Friends
Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
TSG Clear Stamps - Get Sentimental
Catered Crop - White
Cute Card Thursday - Clean & Simple

PS SQA results are in and there will be loads of celebrations in our house today, both boys got great results, Alan at Higher/Ad Higher level and Colin at Standard Grade. Colin's phone buzzed at 6.38 this morning as the results hit the in box of his phone, so we have been up since then and guess what Laurie - the boy passed his french too! Tres bon indeed!!!
