Finally.. a card I hope you all like?

As I said last night, I am missing my BFF as she has left Oz and headed to Paris. As I missed her birthday, I thought I would make her a card to send off with a care package so she doesn't miss us too much.
I hope you all like it.

Recipe:Aussie Tilda and some Bazzil for the green cardstock, various copic markers
Paper: My memories, Flowers: Smudge & Sparkle, Punch: Martha Stewarts (butterfly and green lace, Spellbinders scalloped circle and plain circles, ribbon: Crafty Capers, buttons - who
Sentiment: Stampin' Up

As I am still a newbie to all entering these creative challenges - I thought I would have a bash.
So I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:
Bizzy Becs - Spellbinders challenge along with Becs Store blog challenge of 3 Flowers, 2 Buttons and 1 Ribbon
Mad for Markers - Green and Gold or Red, Blue and White
And Copic Oz - Challenge #6 - Its Summertime

So I hope you like it.
Have a great day/night

Where have I been?

I have been feeling a little lost these last few days/weeks.. My BFF has moved to PARIS.. yes to Paris, France.. its with work, but I am going to miss her dreadfully as she is/was the one that introduced me to card making and is to blame for my addiction at least that's what I tell my hubby.
Another friend is off to Albany - actually they moved last week and so I am feeling a little lonely! This usually happens when you have had a full on Christmas with all the family around and then a week or two later you are back to reality with a mighty boom! Back to real life. I have decided to literally throw myself into getting stuck into my huge stash of papers and attempt to create for the most wonderful challenges that are out there! so what this space. Ok, well in my spare time after work.. lol
I also want to try and create some cards with stamps and digi's that I have yet to use! So keep your eye's peeled.
For the last week I have been working on my BFF's birthday card - Typically I wasn't organised enough to have it with me when we had coffee last as I thought, well I can send it to her and send her an Aussie care package as well, you know the survival things you really need when you aren't in Kansas (aka Australia) any more - ie. Tim Tams, Vegemite, violet crumble's... ummm what else.. perhaps you can leave me a reminder as to what else to send to her. She and her wonderful husband will be away for two years (sigh) but this should be a good excuse for Me and DH to visit! What else would you need except a friend living in Paris with a spare room.. lol
Anyways - the card should be dry for a pic tomorrow.. I did go a bit crazy with the stickles.. ha ha
Ok, that's enough of my waffle..
Have a great night
and pop back tomorrow night for a peek at my card - of which I will be entering into some of those wonderful challenges..
