I am alive and some exciting news!

Hi Everyone!

Well, yes I am alive!  I think this this the longest I've not posted anything :-(  Lots going on at the moment but it is ALL good!  

I am also in an Olympic Bubble at the moment!  Not sure what I will do next week when its all finished!  Went up to Hyde Park on Saturday night which is one of the Live Sites in London with massive screens to watch the live action.  Saw Jessica Ennis win her gold there, it was a great atmosphere!  Then got a phone all from a friend on Monday asking if I wanted to go to the Basketball quarter finals, the answer was YES so spent all afternoon at the O2 yesterday!  Fantastic atmosphere!  At least I can now say I went to an event at London 2012!  Will show some photos later in the week.

Now, onto my next bit of EXCITING news!  I am very pleased to say that I am officially a SWEETIE at The Sugar Bowl challenge blog!  I was very excited when Gayle emailed me a while ago and I have been dying to tell everyone!  

So, we have a brand new sketch for you today with the theme of "Butterflies".  Here is my card:

I used my gorgeous Delia which you can get from Funky Kits.  She is one of my favourites!  I have gone for one of my favourite colour combinations. The gorgeous paper is again from Maja Design - Vintage Summer Basics.  The border die is from Doo Hickeys and the butterflies are Tonic and Woodware punches.  She is coloured with Copics and Prisma pencils and lots of glamour dust (of course!) 

I hope you like her and I hope you can join in this week.  Remember you must use a Sugar Nellie image to be eligible for a prize, which is 4 Sugar Nellie stamps (this rises to 6 if we get over 100 entries!).  Pop on over to the Sugar Bowl blog to check out the sketch and to see all the gorgeous inspiration from the very talented DT (I am so excited to be part of it!) 

I would like to enter into this card into the first challenge at In The Pink, a brand new challenge blog run by the gorgeous Christine and Sylvia-Anne.  Pop along and show your support!  

Have a wonderful day and I will see you very soon

Love and Hugs
