I am hosting the challenges this month at Rosie-D's, and the theme for this fortnight is Burgandy, Pink and Cream. I was feeling a bit nostalgic after I had finished my card as it reminded me of my sister and me when we was younger. I'm also offering the following prize to the winner -

So if you fancy joining in pop on over and take a look at the fab DT creations too.

I would also like to enter it into the following challenges:-
1. Crafty Cardmakers - challenge 24 - Inky Fingers
2. Truly Scrumptious - challenge 36 - Sketch (which I have rotated)
3. ABC Challenge - Y is for You an Me

I would like to apologise in advance if I go missing a bit over the next week or so, as my Sister was rushed into hospital last night, there is something wrong with her white blood cells and they think she has a clot on her lung. They are giving her a body scan at 9am in the morning. Now she has twin boys age 4, same age as Bobby, my youngest. Their Dad has them at the moment, but i'll be having them tomorrow, so might not see a computer as when the three of them get together they are little tearaways. But i'll have to help out where I can, so can't say when i'll be around. Strange though that this card was made with my sister in mind over a week ago, way before she became ill, and now it looks like i'll be giving it to her as a get well card.

Stamps - Penny Black Rain or Shine,
Papers - Papermania Regency, My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus,
Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks,
Embellishments - Sentiment ticket, bow, rose, flowers, photo corners all from stash

Happy crafting
