Afternoon all!

Hope all are well on this wet, miserable day!. It's been raining non-stop all day and feeling rather chilly brrrrrr. And did you watch Strictly and X-Factor?, Wow Scott was amazing with his dance and Wagner and Katie were terrible as normal. Matt and Rebecca were terrific and I loved One direction too. Cannot wait till tonight for the results and I'm a Celeb too wooohoooooo.

Right, enough of reality T.V, on to today's little gem. This cutie is a great stamp from C.C Designs and I haven't inked her up for a very long time. I have used some great new papers from BasicGrey called "Marjolaine" and some of my fave punched flowers.

This sweetie is going into the following Challenges :-
BasicGrey # 33 ~ Wings
Sketch & Stash # 48 ~ Fab Sketch

Butterfly Nora ~ C.C.Designs

OMG - Just watched X Factor results. Can't believe Wagner (that's Vagner, Louie!) has gone through again. Who in the name of all that is holy is voting for him - WHY???????? Dreadful, awful. Last night, Louie said he was like a young Elton John - he's the same bloomin' age as him for gawd's sake!! Anyway - rant over!!! Well up for I'm a Celeb starting tonight! As for your card - really gorgeous. I've got those papers and I love the way you've used them. And such a cute image. Really fab! Hugs, Marie xx
