Be Thankful

Morning everyone.  Oooh its so lovely to be back in blogland with a puter that works, though I did drop it when I went to bed - ooops - shhhhh, don't tell Pete!!  Honestly, I'm just a walking nightmare when it comes to computers lol.  I'm still getting used to the updated version of things on here so, together with dropping the darn thing, I hope all goes to plan here lol.

I've had a great time getting some blog hopping done as my new machine is so fast - LOVE IT! and today I have HUUUUGE pleasure in bringing you a new challenge from Fussy and Fancy Friday.   You all did smashing creations for our "Three B challenge", you're gonna like this one too.

This fortnight our theme is

" Be thankful, feature a Sentiment "

Now I'm wondering if even I interpreted this correctly!  I don't always put sentiments on my card so to include one is "a feature" for me!  However, now I'm thinking maybe I should have done more and omitted using an image altogether????   I dunno, but I'm chuffed with the result....

I often don't use flowers so was experimenting here as I always admire all your gorgeous floral arrangements on your creations!!  I've also added the sentiment and even decorated that with flowers - so for me, this sentiment is well featured lol..  I added glitter to the flourishes and also a little gem to the centre of the flower on her hat.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Sweet n Sassy Stamps.

Don't forget to check out the challenge blog for HERE for more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges..

Wow Mel,
This is gorgeous! I'm always thankful for cupcakes in a room, but I'm pretty sure that's not where you were going with it..LOL. Just saying. :)
Love that you branched out with some new techniques on this one and it looks fantastic. I personally love the flowers and think you've done a dynamic job on this card. Very inspirational.
Good luck with the computer too! ;)

Thank you SO much for playing along with us at The Squirrel & The Fox for our challenge.
Good luck to you and we hope you come back next week to play along again.
