Busy week - ups and downs! And another challenge card!!!!

Oh boy!  Its been such a busy, fun week this week.  BUT I went to hospital this morning and they confirmed I am going to have to have my gallbladder out!  YUKKKK!  Still - its a nice easy op so thats good!

And just can't wait for tomorrow!  Busy Saturday morning (as usual!) and then in the afternoon a friend that I haven't seen in an age is coming over.  And then...we are going with another friend and some work colleagues to...Shakespeare in the park!  Now - have never been before, but its meant to be fabby!  Taming of the Shrew - need to go and find out the story NOW in case I dont understand it!  I did Shakespeare in school - loved it, but that was when I had the study guide and understood all the asides and how they related to that period of time.

And this card is for my friend!  She has had a tough time and I am so glad she is back on the scene!  Image is rather fabby Anya from the Greetings Farm - and I have followed their Farm Fresh Friday sketch - two sketches in one day! 

And then - because it's for my friend, I would like to enter this in the Simon Says Challenge - which is "You Gotta Have Friends"

I have layered it up a little, with that and the glossy accents (think that's its name!) - oh and the buttons - I can enter it into ABC's Challenge which is to add Xtra dimension - did wonder what the "X" would be - had visions of triple X stuff all over everyone's blogs!

Finally, Sew Many Cards have an "Anything Goes" challenge - well it would be rude not to, wouldn't it!!!

And you can't really see it but I used that glossy stuff on her glasses - looks alot better "in the flesh!" - this means that I can enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge to "let it shine!"

Thanks for looking
