Happy Sunday all!
It feels like an age since I've been here! 
Last weeks posts were scheduled as I was off on my jolly hols 
in beautiful sunny Lanzarote!
We had a great time with lots of R&R!
My thanks go to the other DT ladies for filling in for me!

Now onto this weeks DT card for The Crafty Pad!
Where the theme for Challenge #145 is
Here's my card!

I used a 5" X 5" white square card blank for the base.
The DT were given the Oh So Cute!

This image is available as a digi for you to colour as well as a coloured version!
As I was short of time I opted to use the coloured version!
I think you'll agree it's really lovely!
The pics don't quite do it justice I'm sorry!
The Papers & buttons I used were from a Papermania Capsule Collection & I 
think they go perfectly with the colours in the image!
I used a nestie to cut out Roshelle & her friend then inked the edges.

I created the circle sentiment in my graphics programme & cut it out 
with a smaller nestie & again inked the edges.
I added the 'hope ribbon' symbol as this card is going to a friend who will appreciate that.
I then remembered I had a little metal 'hope' charm which fit almost perfectly 
I also added some bakers twine detail

The inside was decorated to match & I shouldn't tell you but in my haste 
I managed to stick the panel on the wrong side!!!! LOL!
I'm sure we've all managed that at some point right?!
I so needed that holiday!!!!
Now that I'm back I'll just do the other side to match!

Our sponsor this week is the fantastic Michelle's Scrap
who is offering this fabulous rubber stamp as the prize!

I hope you can join us for the Challenge!
Don't forget to check out the other awesome creations by the
other DT members!
