Lots going on over here!

Howdy my dears,

How are you all this fine day? I myself am doing fine and dandy, and I have lots of awesome stuff going on right now, some of which I can't tell you about yet, but if I can just direct your attention to my side bar... See the gorgeous new blinkie? The one that says I design for Milk Coffee? Isn't it purty?

And if you're not familiar with them, go see! Their digis are absolutely adorable! Watch this space, as they'll be making fortnightly appearances on my blog very soon! :-)

In other news, my daughter Kayleigh came to me on Thursday night and told me that one of her friends would be moving away during the half-term holidays, and please could I have a card ready for her before morning!
Thank you for the notice, child of mine! lol.
She was quite specific in her requirements. It had to have a purple unicorn (had no unicorns, but Bugaboo came to the rescue), a doily (her friend's nick-name apparently), some pink and lots of bling and sparkle.

So this is what I came up with:

I used pink paper with a gold shiny flower pattern instead of a cardstock mat, and the added purple glitter paper (from Fizzy Moon pack) and a ribbon coloured with Promarkers to match. I also threw a heap of purple gems and pearls at it and heat embossed the sentiment to that is shiny too! Oh, and there's Stickles on the horn, hooves and flowers, naturally. The dies I used were a corner die from Joanna Sheen and a vine one I can't remember the brand of at the moment, lol. The flowers are from WOC.
My daughter loved it, and apparently her friend said it was the best card she'd ever seen, so I think I can call it a success.

I'm entering this card into the Created with Love - Anything goes - challenge.

Hope you're all having a great day, and those in the south of England, hope you've been getting through the weather in one piece!
See you soon with more exciting news!
