Morning peeps firstly thank you all for your kind  and supportive comments about my daughter,shes back home and resting if that is at all possible with a 3 year old, but hes great for cuddles, secondly whats happened to the weather, rained all day on Thursday, yuk......don't like the wet stuff and thirdly I went for a health check that the local docs invited me to, and apart from having slightly raised cholesterol  I'm not in too bad a shape, she gave me a diet sheet telling me which foods to avoid but when I said I worked for Thorntons she said that was ok because the chocolates are yummy, although I've got a slight feeling that they are on the foods to avoid list.
Anyway todays card is similar  to last weeks card in as much that I've used the same sweet image from Wee Stamps called Silver Fairy. I've gone for similar colours again, I tend to use the same colours for a time before I move onto the next ones, I'm like that with food I'll have the same sandwich for dinner for weeks until I get fed up with it......I guess I'm just weird.!!!! don't all agree at once please.
The papers are from the Polkadoodle Cd Magical winter part 1, I lurvvvvve these grey lilac colours and are perfect for any occassion. The theme this week for the Polkadoodle challenge is mythical creatures so you can join in with your faries, unicorns, dragons etc.I've made a shaker card, not done one of these before, I used a lovely vintage chunky glitter for the inside and the flowers are from Wild Orchid crafts.So don't forget to join in the fun this week.
