MAWTT - Challenge # 17 - Clare C's Sketch & Theme and My 1st Year Blogaversary!

Hello, it's my first year blogaversary today, wow that has gone quick! It has been so frantic over the last year, but I have enjoyed every minute of it. I have also made some wonderful genuine friends via this blogging lark, you all know who you are, so I won't get all soppy on you. Only to say, thanks to everyone who leaves comments on here, they are truely appreciated.

Am I the only one who has had probs posting today? My Willow Sketchie card will be appearing later as I don't seem to be able to email. Not sure what is going on, just glad to be able to upload this card for the Moving Along With The Times Challenge . It was the lovely Threadbare (Clare C)'s turn this week. The theme is 'no stamping', this was really hard for me, I haven't used die-cuts for ages now, so thanks Clare for making this super challenging! The prize this week is another guest spot on our team, we have so much fun coming up with challenges, so please do join us and give it a go. My turn next week to do the sketch and theme, so I must get my thinking cap on!

The recipe for my card is this : Small Kraft Card, My Mind's Eye 'Colourful Christmas' papers, Scallop Nesties, CB Snowflake, MS Doily Lace punch, sentiment and bling from stash. I have edged the kraft card with a Versamagic 'Petunia' inkpad. Its a very different card from me, but I am glad how it turned out, even without any stamping in sight!

Had a wonderful day out in London yesterday. Amy, Jess and I went to see 'Wicked' at The Apollo Theatre. Great show! We did some shopping and had a lovely lunch. The only downer was that it has been so long since I visited London, I forgot you have to spend 20p to pee!

Right, must go and play with blogger. Will try to upload my Willow card later, have a good afternoon, hope you all have this lovely sunshine that we are having here in Sussex?
