So, I've been gone a few more days that I first thought I would be, finding time to craft, blog and run the house is not quite working out for me at the moment :) Plus we've been having the rare pre-Spring weather and we've been outside enjoying it while it's here. Every few days it rains, then the temps rise, and then it cools right back down. I'm hoping the forcasted cold-snap that's due this weekend doesn't bring a frost with it as I planted some vegetables yesterday.. and only the tomatos are under cover at the moment....

Anyhoo, onto my card. This is from Mo Manning... I am quickly developing a crush for these images. This is Odette, and aren't her curls and pretty tutu just so sweet?

I have to do some hopping to find some non-Magnolia related challenge blogs! I've been so "Maggie-Obsessed" that I have very few listed that are not specifically for Tilda so I'm on the hunt for some new challenge blogs :) If any of you frequent some goodies please let me know so I can check them out :)

Am entering Simon Says Stamps - Anything Goes Challenge

I will be back with the cards I made for the twins 4th birthdays later in the week...
Take care

Hi Loz,
lovely card as usual.
I've sent you a separate email with a list of some of the challenge blogs I find are good.

Hi Loz
Nice to see you back... and the piccy of your little smiley girl is gorgeous! I wish we had some of your rain, I think Western Australia is the only place in the world that's not getting any (we've only had about 80mm instead of 220mm over winter!), do like the blue sky though, especially as it's not stinking hot with it! I've got a list of challenges that I enter all the time - I have ditched most of the ones that limit the number of challenges you can enter (I read your post, agree entirely!) I have listed them below, but I have got links for all of them so I'll email it to you if I can find your email addy. Happy birthday to the twins, Donna

This is so pretty! Love the image but with your papers, ribbon, sparkle and embellies, it's so girly-girl and soft looking.
