shades of blue

A month or so ago I had the feeling I was going to win something , and SA bloggers won left right and centre.. but nothing for me.
Until today ,I was so thrilled to see I have won one of the prizes at Lynns Designer Creations especially as I was a follower and admirer of her work before the candy was up for grabs , well done me and thank you Lynn.

Well on to my first card of the weekend in support of fellow South African design team member Sharon who is on the DT for Isabella,s Challenge.
I love the freebie they offered so we are able to join in.
Sometimes I would love to enter a challenge but don't have the paper or the stamp required to enter so thanks for the freebie.
I am hoping that i am on a roll and might win the stamps up for grabs!
I have made this card for my mother-in-law Sweetpea and am also entering it into the Copics Colour Challenge (my colours were so close this week)
, and lastly the PaperPlay challenge which requires a stamp digi or otherwise and bling.
Tomorrow is Mothers day here and we are heading out for breakfast at the local nursery . It's a lovely setting under the trees with loads of birds, weavers and red bishops ... and of course good food .
So whether you celebrate Mothers Day tomorrow or not have a wonderful Sunday.
And of course let me know what you think of my card I rather like it .
