Here Come The Girls with the Cutie Pies

Good morning,

I'm afraid blog posts have been a bit of a hit and a miss with me recently and will probably remain that way for the next few weeks until I'm on holiday from work.  This is our busiest time of the year with deadlines looming at the end of this month but then at least I get a well earned fortnight off.  We don't have any plans but it will be nice just not to have to set the alarm and potter about doing whatever we want to - hopefully some crafting and blogging!

In my last post I mentioned we were heading off to Liverpool for a cheerleading competition well my daughter's team won their age and ability category and became Jamfest Europe champions!  We are all delighted and extremely proud of their success.  We absolutely loved Liverpool too what a fantastic friendly city and we also happened to be there when there were lots of events taking place to commemorate forces day which made it even more busy and vibrant.  We can't wait to go back again next year but we're going to get saving as the shops are amazing too!!

Ok back to my card.  Today we have a fantastic new challenge starting over at the Cutie Pie Challenge.  Our theme this month is 'Here Come The Girls' and we'd love you to join in.

We are sponsored by Crafty Sentiments who have some of their fab digis up for grabs for our lucky winner.

I've used one of their images for my DT card and coloured it with Promarkers.

The layout for the background is from a sketch I found on Pinterest and I've added some faux stitching to the papers to tie it all together.

Materials used:
Image - Crafty Sentiments
Crafters Companion Neenah Solar White Card
Colour Vision Black Card
Papers - My Minds Eye - Happy Day
Sentiment Stamp - Personal Impressions
Button & Twine from stash

Thank you for stopping by, have a great week whatever you have planned.
