Ten Challenges

Good morning girls and what a lovely morning it is. I have been a good girl today, I have hoovered and dusted and watered plants before I finished this card. I didn't get it finished yesterday before I went out for the evening because I managed to cut my finger while I was making tea. I really did have a clumsy day yesterday lol!!
Anyway I am hoping that this card fits no fewer than 10 challenges. I think I have gone a bit over the top with this one lol!! We are going to visit our daughter tomorrow and I am going to a Stampin Up party this evening so I need to think ahead.
I made this card using the lovely sketch from Sketch Saturday. I watercoloured this cute image from Penny Black. My DP is from Basic grey and I embossed the plain pink with my Cuttlebug swiss dots folder. I used a punch to cut out the little hearts and the tag is from a punch too. The ribbon and eyelets are from my stash. I couldn't find a suitable stamp to fit the theme (and the tag) so I used some black peeloffs - knew they would come in useful eventually!

The challenges I hope to enter are:-

Penny Black Saturday Challenge:- Chocolate, lemon and pink.

Sketch Saturday:- Sketch.

Secret Crafter:- Animal antics.

Die Cut Dreams:- Ribbon and trims.

Pile it on:- Let them eat cake.

Whimsy:- Eyelets.

The Pink Elephant:- Dots, punch, tag.

Creative Inspirations Wednesday Challenge:- Letters/numbers.

Cute Card Thursday:-First birthday.

ABC:- E for embossing.

Wow I'm tired just listing them LOL!! You probably all think I'm nuts now but some of these are challenges I always try to enter and some are ones I enter sometimes if I fancy them so I saw them while I was browsing blogs. Just humour me......!

I'm off now to be a good girl and clean the bathroom, make the tea, have my lunch and go to work.

Not sure how I am going to cope with no internet for a couple of days but I dare say Poppy will keep me busy. She is turning into a real little chatterbox now and always busy. Her mum starts her maternity leave on Tuesday so I think she is not going to have a quiet time before the baby comes lol!!

I'll maybe get a chance to check out some blogs later if I'm not home too late. Have a nice weekend girls, I'm hoping to check out Stampaholics in Perth on my way to Crieff tomorrow. I've heard that it's a really good shop.
