Simply Sassy Banner Challenge

Hi Folks, hope you are all having a lovely day, especially those lucky enough to have the day off. Although I have'nt watched all of the celebrations, I had to check out Kate's dress. She looked so beautiful and William looked amazing too.

I've spent most of the morning playing in my craft room.

I thought I'd make a card to enter into the amazing challenge over at Simply Sassy  which is to make a card with a Simply Sassy cutie on, with the chance to have your Simply Sassy image, displayed on their blog header  for two months. What a wonderful prize!

I made an easel card ( how difficult are these to photograph?) as I was itching to use my new fancy tags 2 dies and thought it would make a good stopper.

I used: Bed Time Snuggles
Basic Grey papers
Promarkers, Derwent pencils and Sansador
McGill & By Avec punches
LOTV sentiment
Old Paper Distress Ink
Cosmic Twinkles
Ribbon, flowers and charm from stash

I think I might just have to spend another few hours playing as Hubby is at work, he works for the blood service and today he is delivering blood to hospitals. Will make sure I do him a yummy tea later.

Before I go I have a couple of bits of good news, I came top 3 over at I Love Promarkers Thank You again Karen & the team.

Also, I've been covering the Cook/Supervisor role at work since October, well I've now been given the position permanently. I'm over the moon !
