Trish Tea Angel and some Yummy Awards

I can't believe it's Friday already.. where has the week gone? I have quite a few birthdays coming up so here is a card I made last night using one of my new stamps High Hopes "Trish Tea Angel". If you like the design of my card you can find the sketch for it over at my Sketch blog.

Over the last couple of days I have received some fab awards. The first yummy one from my sweet friends Marlene and Jacqui.

I would like to pass this award to all my Diva team mates at High Hopes and also to the "A Spoon Full of Sugar" DT gang. I won't list all your names but you can see who they are from the list in my side bar.

My other award has been given to me from Malin... Oh Malin.. I just LOVE this - thank you! I pass this below Sylvester award to my daughter Zoe, Heidi, Kelly, Agnes, Karin, Debbie, Lim, Marlene, Bryony, Kristine & Jakki.

Before I go my friend Crissy has just told me that October 4th is "World Card Making Day". If you haven't heard about this you can check out details here. The website has lots of great idea's on how to celebrate and also you can upload your cards to share your creations.

OK, one last thing (boy this was a long post today!).. My daughter Zoe and her friend Hannah at Craft Monkey's have their new challenge starting today at 3:30pm GMT. Don't forget to pop on over to show your support and encourage your under 16's to join in.

Have a great weekend!

A most gorgeous stamp and card Nikkie and so beautifully coloured. You are a whizz with those Prismas. Sadly I'm not so I stopped using them. You get your blending just right - fabulous. Love the sketch as well. I'm gonna pop over and have a nosey at your other blog now but have a nice day. And yes, this week has flown - glad it isn't just me that thought that xzxxxxx

Hi Nikki,

Love this card and I was so happy to see that you have started a blog with your sketches.

I have just got back from holiday so it is taking me a while to get caught up on everyone's blogs. Can't belive how busy you have all been over the past couple of weeks.
