Its Challenge time again at SPS

Hi everyone!! Well I'm very pleased with myself this week as I've managed to get my card made for this weeks challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers and this week the theme is "Remember".

Wasn't quite sure on the theme but I do love my card even though I don't seem to be on the same wave length as the rest of the girls!! lol

I just adore this image from The Crafty Purple Frog she is called Night Rose and can be found here. Just love her eyes so I have put glossy accents on them to really make them pop.

Added loads of stickles and tried to make the flower as large as as possible could.

Added some black ribbon to my papers which are plain black card, silver Mirri and some Halloween paper from my stash.

Flowers are also from my stash and the little banner is a magnolia stamp which I have just used a silver pen to write "Remember" in.

Please go and check out my teamies blogs as there inspiration is amazing as always and I hope to see you join in with our challenge as the prize is just perfect!!

A little update on "Dusty"!!

She was a very poorly little girl on Monday when I brought her home and couldn't walk and stand properly for a few days. She is on antibiotics for a water infection, still on a pain killers and isn't eating properly. Yesterday I popped out and bought her a cooked chicken which she really enjoyed so it looks like I will be going again today!!

On top of that I have just taken my Mum into the Royal Hallamshire in Sheffield as she is having a hysterectomy this morning so everything is crossed for her.

On a brighter note it was my Birthday on Monday and I really didn't want to leave Dusty on her own but my family had booked for us to go out for a meal.

Her is my little Angel dressed as a cute little witch!! You should see some of the photo's she really does clash with the carpet!! lol

Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such wonderful comments, also a big Thank you to my teamies over at The Crafty Purple Frog & Sweet Pea Stampers for all your support over the last few months you girls really are ace!!!.

Hope I havn't bored you all with such a long post hope everyone has a great weekend.

Love & Hugs Chanelle xxx
