Just a quick Hi to all the girls who went along to Dianne's Plush Pals Workshop on Saturday, at Crafts4U2Do - hope you had a wonderful day and liked the cards you went away with (though I'm sure you did!) I just wish I lived a bit nearer and I could have come along too!!

So, what's new today? I've been quite productive in my craft room this weekend, and decided to make a card for the Mami Doodles Challenge this week, which is a monochromatic card. I'm really quite pleased with the way this one has turned out, it's a real 'me' card - pink and girly! I love the colour pink, although don't have any pink rooms in my house, no pink car, and not very many pink clothes, but if you asked what my favourite colour was, I think it would have to be pink?!!

The wedding cake is yet another way to use up all those strips of white card left over from cutting A4 sheets, to make square cards, and the strings of pearls between each layer have been hanging around my ribbon bits tin for possibly years! It's amazing what you find when you're just 'playing'. I seem to be going through a phase of using up all the bits and bobs that have been forgotten about and gathering dust on the numerous shelves of stuff, that I'm sure we all hoard! My next venture is to find some co-ordinating papers in my patterned paper drawer and use them, though I have to admit that it's something I'm still learning at yet - I can spend hours shuffling bits of patterned paper around a card blank and still end up with a blank card staring back at me at the end of it!! I'll post back and let you know how I get on!?!

The cake is gorgeous - great idea to use paper bits. I never can't throw paper away.
