My New Year Resolution!

Hello campers!

Happy New Year everyone, Gosh... it's so long since I've been here!  I really don't get much time to post my cards and crafty makes lately but at the start of this new year I've decided to try and make a supreme effort to post a card each week!!  (We'll see :) !! )
I have made loads of cards since I was here last and will try and show some of them later in the year. Anyway for now I have had to  make a card for my Auntie's birthday so I thought why not make a challenge card, so here it is:

I have used:
Papers from My Mind's Eye (Spring Paper pad - free from a magazine), Image from a free stamp set from Cardmaking and Papercrafts magazine, coloured with Promarkers and Glossy Accents. Flowers from my craft cupboard, the yellow felt ones are recycled from a card I was given!  The ribbon is from a Marks and Spencer party cake which we had (or which I mainly ate all myself) at Christmas!!  Sentiment from Kanban. Pearly doodles and pearls to decorate. 

I'd like to enter it into 3 challenges this week.

1. Sketch Saturday #189  for the sketch

2. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge  - Let Them Eat Cake   ........  (I did, I put on 10lbs this Xmas
holiday!!!)  .. for the image.

3. Sweet Stampin' ....... Spots and Dots  .... for the papers.

Off to wash up the dinner things before Sherlock starts now.  It's great to be back, let's hope I can keep visiting!!
