Girls just want to ...

HAVE FUN! Well that's for sure. 
My daughter recently had her Presentation/Debutante Ball with girls from her year level and there was sooooooo much rockin' and swaying and giggling going on. 
Hang on a minute ... I think that was me in the corner after all the preparation was done. 

I am only just starting to feel normal again. (Although I wouldn't say no to a few extra hours sleep ... everyday for the next week) 
The girls have finally stopped complaining about their aching feet. (Well you will wear those ridiculously high shoes)
The music has stopped ringing in my ears. (I said, the ..has ..stopped ..ringing my ears) 

I have to confess that I have had this card made and sitting underneath a pile of stuff on my desk but today was finally 'tidy up' day. I feel like it is Christmas, with lots of .... "Oooo, I remember that digi I bought .... there is that paper pad .... that is where I put the bling ... oh look, my scissors" 
The image is from Stamping Bella, the papers are Ambrosia from Bo Bunny, the flower die is from Joy Crafts and all that bling is from Kaisercraft.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Fairy Tale #48 Inspired by a song
Whoopsi Daisy Two Patterned Papers
Shopping our Stash #66 Use your favourite things (Copic markers)
Crafty Sentiments Lets Sparkle

This is where I have been.

  You know when life just has to take priority over crafting! Well that is what happened with my daughters Presentation Ball. There have been dance rehearsals, dress fittings, makeup enquiries, hair practices, bag shopping, after party outfits, shoe shopping, forms to sign and the list just goes on ... and on ... and believe me ... it goes on!
In the end, it was all worth it as she looked absolutely stunning and had a fabulous day. 
So as a proud Mum, I thought that I might share. 

Hopefully, that is it for a while and I can relax and make a card or two ...  just in time for her 17th birthday.

Sweet Stampin - Wedding or Anniversay

This week over at Sweet Stampin' we have a Wedding or Anniversary theme. Our sponsor is Whimsy Stamps and they are giving away 5 free digi's to a lucky winner. Plus, Joanna Sheen has a voucher to give away this month.
I had a bit of a smile to myself when my partner walked past my desk and said "Who do we know that is getting married?".
Isn't it interesting how men think.
You make a card because you need a card.
Mmmmmm ... not quite.
I could explain it all to him - it's a challenge theme, it doesn't matter if I actually need the card, it is not important whether I have anyone to give it too,  it is all about the creating, the inspiration, it is a just in case card, it is a chance for me to use this oh so cute image, it is all about the fun!!!
Isn't it interesting how women think.
Pop on over to Sweet Stampin' and have fun too.

I will enter this card in the following challenges.
Whoopsi Daisy Anything Goes
The Crazy Challenge #126 Black White and 1 other (pink)
Hooked on Crafts #23 Lets Celebrate
