Crafty Friends Challenge - For a Child

Hello there, and thank you so much for visiting me today......hope you've had a great week. Had a pretty busy week since we got back from Scotland last weekend. I always detest the first day back at work after a holiday - it's a "not being able to nip off for a cup of tea, whenever the fancy takes" thing! Anyway, survived the week, the laundry is now all done and dusted and the house is pretty much ship-shape so hoping for a restful weekend.....and very much looking forward to watching the England vs Scotland 5 Nations game this afternoon - I have absolutely no idea of the rules (are there actually any?) of Rugby, but I love the atmosphere and find it such a compelling thing to watch.

Anyway, less waffle and more Crafty Friends news - Yep, it's time for our next challenge and the theme is:
For a Child
our lovely sponsors are

who also very kindly provided some gorgeous images for the team to work with.

I chose the adorable Chloe with HulaHoop digikit......this is the first time I have used these kits, and I have to say that they are absolutely perfect if you need a card at short notice - everything is done for you (and beautifully done too) although even if you have time on your hands the components are fab to play around with. My card will be one of the Birthday cards for Erin, so I added her age - when I decide whether it will be for a Grand daughter or Niece, I will add a sentiment later. I took two of the flower components of the kit to create my own backing paper using serif.

Really hope you will join us for this challenge, why not click here to check out the other gorgeous DT cards and join in with the fun!
