Back to normal (?) with a Sugar Bowl challenge card!!

Well, things are finally getting back to normal here after a mad few weeks!!

My girls are back to school now. My youngest has been loving her first two weeks and was very excited today to get her first homework!! I wonder how long that will last!!

I finally finished my turning out on Monday night (including a complete turn out of our study / my craft room). What a job that was!!!

Then best of all, yesterday, my husband returned home safely from his three month stint in Afghanistan! Luckily he was delighted about all the stuff I've got rid of since he's been away!!

Hopefully things will settle down here for a while now and I can get back into my crafting!!!

On that note, I have done a card tonight for the current Sugar Bowl challenge. Just in time really, as it is for my daughter's birthday on Sunday!!

I have followed the sketch and used my daughter's favourite colours of yellow and pink. The image is coloured with my Promarkers. There was a 'please include' option to add on handmade flowers. I've used my xCut punches and punched flowers from pink and yellow handmade paper.
The patterned papers and chipboard number 5 are all from Papermania. I coloured the 5 with a magenta promarker and then added glitter glue.
Finally, I just wanted to add a big 'Thank You' to Jenny for the awards she left for me on her blog - Stamps, Pencils and Paper! I will add them on to my blog and pass them on soon. In the meantime, check out Jenny's blog as she has some fab cards!!
Thanks for looking!!!
