Feeling rested and very spoiled!

Hi everyone, apologies again for missing last week, but I am feeling much better now. I had a really lovely time in London, we went to see Blood Brothers and Ghost Stories while we were there which were both excellent, so that was the highlight, although the hotel had a pool, sauna and steam room so I had to make daily use of that too! All in all I've been utterly spoiled by my lovely Peter - I even managed to get the coat I'd been hankering after for Christmas in the sale 70% off!!!!! Now that can't be bad! I have to say though that no matter how lovely it was for a visit I was ready to come back home after a week... I guess the trip has just confirmed I'm a quiet country girl at heart!

Well despite being rested and recharged, I'm afraid my mojo still isn't up to much in the old card making stakes... The CI challenge this week is buttons and bows, and we got to use our sponsors images for this one. Here's what I came up with...

I got my sewing machine out for this one as I missed the patchwork theme the week previous so thought I'd add a sniff of patchwork in with this too for good measure!

And here's a close up of the image. I've glitteres the ground, the frog and the raindrops and I've used gloss on the frog. Hope you like. I'm looking forward to the next challenge so hopefully get my mojo back for that one!

Have a fabby week everyone. Happy crafting! Hugs. Katy, xxx
