One Card, Five Challenges!

 Hi everyone, I'm sorry that I haven't been about very much recently but hopefully I'll be blogging again more regularly from now on.
Apart from making my Christmas cards and all the normal festive chores, I've also been busy making cards for a couple of local shops that I supply. I've known I had to do this for some time, but I've been putting it off (big mistake!) Still, hopefully I'm up to date now and can get back to making cards for fun again.
Following my recent visit to Digital Pencil Too I decided I just had to use one of Mo's adorable 'Terrible Two' images.
This also enabled me to enter the following challenges that I've missed over the last couple of weeks:
Mo's Challenge Blog - Just White
Charisma Cardz - Anything but Christmas
Quixotic Challenges - Lace
Papertake Weekly - Sketch #30
Digital Tuesday   - Happy Birthday

Card Details:
* Image - Mo Manning 'Tasha'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Exquisite'
* Punch - Martha Stewart 'Valentine Hearts'
* Everything else from my stash

This is the first card for ages that I hadn't already scheduled about 3 weeks ago (now you can see how long I've really been MIA!) All those recent posts that you thought I'd made were really Mr Blogger.
Huge thanks to those of you who've continued to leave me encouraging comments, you've lifted my spirits more than you can know.

NO no no I am not being tempted - well I am but I'm going to resist - honest. That little one is me on Friday when Boots online crashed at the payment stage!
I hate Boots website!

Gorgeous Card Chrissie. Did I thank you for the lovely card you sent me - I think I did - I hope I did. If not thank you it was fabulous and as you know set me a little chore in using the image for Laura.

Happy Christmas if I don't get chance to pop in again and hope you got my card too.
