Lucky me!

Hello, my friends, Hope you are all well and happy! I have been a very lucky bunny recently, not only did I win the fabulous prize of 6 digis from the LCI bloghop (yay!) I have also been picked to be part of the design team for a brand new challenge blog!! (double yay!!). The new challenge blog is hobbycutzchallenges, and the challenges will be starting very soon! So pop over and visit the blog,  you don't want to miss out! You might also be interested in visiting the shop, these lasercuts are stunning, very versatile and very reasonably priced!
Back to the card, I just had to play with the gorgeous digis I won from LCI! The timing was perfect as it's both of my sisters' birthdays next week and they both love shoes! (told you I was lucky!). This card is for Barb, who would adore to be able to wear a pair of shoes like this! There was a time when she could (and did!!!) but unfortunately she now suffers really badly with arthritis (she has had this since childhood- a truly horrible disease) but she can still dream! The image is coloured with copics and spica at you glitter pens, a little bling added. The papers are from a pad by Crea Motions. The poppy die is Memory box. Well I've waffled on for long enough, thank you for bearing with me, I'll just leave you with a recent photo, or two, of my beautiful Mathilda, who is now 5 months old.
Check out the very stylish new collar!
