I'm back!! And with a couple of cards to share!

Hi all! I'm back into the land of blogging! I had a BRILLIANT Hen Do last weekend - thoroughly spoilt, but exhausted afterwards and ended up getting a nasty cold which put me out of action for a couple of days - hence the lack of a card for this weeks Copic Colour Challenge and why this card is so late! It's for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, a fabulous theme in my opinion of Song title/lyrics! The DT have gone all Christmas Carol-y which is so fun! I pulled put this image though and thought 'Just the two of us' by Bill Withers (or Will Smith depending how old you are!!) would fit the bill!
We also have a very special addition to our little team this week, we are joined by the amazingly talented Debby!! Yey! I love everything she does and really struggle to comment on her cards, trying to think of something more interesting other than 'WOWZERS!!!' every time! And she's with us for the whole of November too!

Stamp - 'Lovin' & Huggin'' by Penny Black
Colouring - Copics
Papers - My Minds Eye - 'Bloom & Grow' & Core'dinations
Sentiment - made on the PC
Pearls & ribbon - stash
Border - Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch

There's a part 2 to this post and that's because this week I am thrilled to be this fortnights Guest Designer on the Anyone for Anya challenge blog - woo hoo!! I love these little cuties so any excuse to ink them up is a bonus! Thanks so much Dawny!
This weeks challenge is a Recipe:- 3 pieces of paper/card, 2 button & 1 ribbon or bow. To show how fab I think this challenge is, I've broken out the good papers - these babies don't get cut up very often!! I've also added some Flower Soft to her coat and muff to make her extra snuggly! I hope you like it and are having a great weekend! I'm off to Dorchester today, staying in a cottage til Wednesday for my Father-in-law's to be's 60th birthday bash, it's going to be brilliant! Catch up with you soon! xx
