They say you should count your rainbows and at last I have one to count today! I've won 10 Polkadoodle CDs on the Polkadoodle birthday blog challenge! Let me tell ya, I whooped around the house doing a happy dance that positively terrified the dog! And, I had a lovely power walk in the rain! I have indulged in too many galaxy muffins this week and I may have to lengthen the power walk (or I could just get a bigger swimsuit for my jollies!)

Although I'm not a huge fan of peach I really do love these pion design papers! I really enjoyed making this one and the lady who bought it was thrilled so smiles all round really!

The image and sentiment are both Lili of The Valley; these new sentiments have been a saviour, they're just really stylish. The flowers are and ribbon are WOC. Boy, did I get in a tuck with this ribbon! I'm beginning to think silk ribbon is evil. Just how long can you wrestle with one piece of ribbon to tie one bow? I'm wondering if faux silk is easier to tie? The little tag is a Magnolia DooHickey and I've stamped an LOTV verse on it.

If I'm brave enough tomorrow I'll post one of the cards I made for the Creative Cardmaking commission. It was the world's worst brief  for me - pyramage with stamps. I nearly cried. Poor Squirrel - she was inundated with texts and e-mails detailing my every cardmaking disaster. The article was also nearly the cause of my demise. In pyramaging a Tilda scene I chopped Tilda's head in two - I laughed so much, with a mouthful of tea, that I snorted tea up my nose and nearly choked! Pyramaging stamped images is officially bad for your health!

Have a great weekend! Last episode of Season 9 NCIS :(  I have my nieces visiting tomorrow so should be a lovely weekend - my daughter loves to see her much older cousins!! Hugs, Jayne xx

This card is so elegant! I will have to stay tuned tomorrow, because I can't imagine what you're talking about. Although I know all too well about making some disastrous cards!

LOL you are a total scream Jayne. I could picture the scene with the decapitated Tilda. Glad I wasn't there, I would have been no help at all.
Your card is gorgeous and so beautifully coloured.
Congrats on your mahoosive win from Polkadoodle. Well done!
