Rainy Days and Thursdays!

Ok, so I know the song lyric is "Mondays", but today its Thursday and as I type there is a blooming dark grey cloud overhead, and I think I can safely assume that its going to chuck it down very soon! Wasn't it a lovely weekend and start to the week though.
Anyway, due to the large grey cloud, the dogs got just a short run around the block when I came in from work today, and I decided to have a fiddle round at my craft desk instead, and ta-dah....this is what I made:
I was lucky enough to win a challenge recently and my prize was a selection of Bugaboo digi's (love 'em to bits, so one very happy little me!!) and this lovely little lady was one of my choices. I have, of course, used the trusty promarkers to colour. The image is mounted onto a Marianne creatables die, and I have also used Joycraft flower dies too. The papers came from a stack from The works (not sure of the "make"), used sticky ribbon and lace to create the mid-border, the sentiment ticket is my own creation, and finally added mini brads to the flowers and bows.

I would like to enter this into:
catch the bug blog - may bingo challenge middle line down (bugaboo image, starts with an S - spots, and flowers
passion for promarkers - use die cuts (blog annivsersary challenge!)
i love promarkers - anything goes
sweet stamps - anything goes
lexis creations - ribbon and lace

Before I want send biggest to any of you lovely folks that have their children sitting their GCSE's at the moment......Megan is about half way through, so has about 12 more papers to do.....bless her wee heart. She had English Lit - poetry and also Geography today so I'm just waiting on her coming in to hear how they went.
