FOR MY DAUGHTER.......................

Afternoon all!

Hope you are all well on this sunny, slightly warmer Saturday afternoon and are you all ready for the X-Factor!, Woohoo cannot wait for tonight's TV and I'm on team Matt (well he is an Essex boy lol!), he does have fab voice BUT I do think One Direction will win. And did you watch Strictly last night?, well I didn't cause I didn't know it was on boohoo!. Never mind, have to watch tonight's show and I'm not sure who is going to win that one Mmmmmm....................
And what about Corrie!, it was brilliant all week but I'm slightly confused about the 4 deaths!, can anyone explain that one to me lol!

So enough about TV and straight onto today's card. This gorgeous stamp is from Squiggle Stamps and I think she is quirky and funky for teen girls. It's my daughter's birthday on Monday ( wow 15!) and she just loves the colour purple. I have teamed this fab image with some lovely paper from my new paper pad from Black Market Paper Society "Let it Bloom" and it has a gorgeous linen feel to it. I have also used my fave flower punch from NS "Poinsettia" again lol!

This sweetie is going into the following challenges :-
Friday Sketchers # 132 ~ Fab Sketch
Sweet Stampin ~ A recipe ~ 3 papers, 2 embellie & 1 stamp
CES # 16 ~ Anything but a Xmas Card

Miss Evie "Flower Power" ~ Squiggle Stamps

Awww your daughter will love her card !!! Your colouring as ever Vicky is gorgeous and I just adore the colours you have used !!! I think there is still to be one more death (but dont quote me)

Wishcraft said...

Yay it's great to able to leave comments again :o) Gorgeous card hun, love the papers and image and those lovely flowers. Hope your daughter has a fab birthday.

Enjoy the X Factor - think any of them could win it really, although I don't think Cher will... you might be right about One Direction, all the young girls will vote for them!

Hiya Vicky!

Wow hon, this is such a super card and the image is so cool and perfect for your 15 year old daughter - I'm sure she's going to love it!

I don't really mind who wins X Factor tonight but like you I think One Direction might just swing it. And as for Strictly - Team Kara and Artem all the way baby!! Although Pamela and James are completely amazing too, lol!!

See you soon and have a fab night :o)

Hi Vicky

Oh I love this. What a great image .. .. like your daughter I am a fan of purple too.

I don't understand the 4 deaths either. My hubby kept saying "but they said we would know by the end of the week and we don't".

We know Molly has gone and Ashley. They are switching the machine off on that mad woman but who is number 4? Is it going to be Peter or do they mean the death of Sally and Kevin's marriage? We will have to wait and see!! Anyone would think it is real LOL!!!

Enjoy your evening.

Love Jules xx

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!! I missed Strictly last night too - why didn't they tell us last week that it was going to be on on Friday?! xx

Debbie said...

Just delightful. Happy Birthday to your girl.
I enjoyed Strickly and think Kara should win.
I also knew Cher would be first out as the whisper is she is working with Will i am and thats why she was not in fllods of tears like EVERY week. Did not like Rebecca as much as usual, but Matt I thought was great. One direction will have a record deal whatever anyway!!
Oh hec I will get off my soap box now!! Sorry.
I do love your card by the way LOL. I should be talking about that....Debbiexx

Hi Vicky gorgeous image - I love all the flowers in her hair and sure your daughter will love it. The papers you have used are gorgeous too!
On Strictly I do love Kara but I think may be Pamela will win - I also love Matt.
I thought Cher was excellent last night and didn't play it safe with her sons like the others - she has definitely got something going on as she wasn't upset at all.

Well I'm glad it's not just me who is confused about Corrie! I'm sure I can only count three deaths! Do let me know if you find out who the fourth victim was......!
Love your card, super stunning as always!
Sorry i've been a bad blogger recently, I'm hoping Santa brings me a netbook for Christmas which would make life sooooooooo much easier!
In case I'm not round much this week, have a lovely Christmas!
