Anything Goes Challenge- Pick of the bunch!

Hi everyone! I've got 2 posts to share with you today but first I have some personal news- my Mum had her first full body scan and blood tests done since her ops last year and there is no sign of cancer!!!!! Her liver is regenerating nicely too. She will be monitored every 3 months but we are SO SO relieved that the initial signs are good! How happy are we??!!!

First up is the new challenge over at Anything Goes! The challenge this week is a nice and easy one with a theme we all love to use! It's "pick of the bunch" ie use flowers!

Here is my DT card. I used this gorgeous little image by MFT- I love these stamps, they remind me of Bod. Do you remember Bod- the children's cartoon?! I used to love that show, especially when you had to guess what flavour milkshake was drunk at the end?!!!! If you don't remember it, I must sound mad!! ha ha.

Anyway, I coloured her with copics and paper pieced her dress and cardi. I used lyra pencils for grass shading. These papers I love so much, so pretty are by Basic Grey. The sentiment is so sweet and apt is by Stamping Bella. The tag is a Doohickey die- first time I've used it.

Don't forget you can buy your gorgeous Basic Grey papers from Lynn at The Craft Den! And check out the rest of the DT's inspiration here.
