It's been how long???????

Oh my goodness me what a bad blogger I a, I am so very sorry it has been 2 whole weeks since my last blog post bioy where has the time gone. It's been so busy here with cards of all sorts (none to post aboput though  hence the absence :o( sorry) but I do have a couple to share with you and I will show one now and one later maybe tomorrow ar monda.
Any how are you all good I hope have you missed me (bet not oh well) we had a mad week this week it wa the Match Attax swap and collect tournament this week (the what??????????????? Ihear you ask) it's an event that is put every year by match atax fpr people that collect them and for the kids that know how to play the game?????? :o/(I have no idea) anyway we went to a couple of the venues as you should all know this is Phil's line of work so we needed to get the limited editions that were available from there and also they do auctions for signed cards and footy shirts but you only bid with cards not money.
Anyway these events are spread across the country over a 2 week course and this last week it was at the Villa ground (we wiped our feet on the way out lol) and Bolton (Rebok) and then finally at Newcastle (St James) we went to bolton and decided to stay over night as it was silly coming home only to have to travekl back up there the next day to get to Newcastle so that's what we did only on our way from Bolton we stopped off in Burnely and I was rather naughty and surpeised a very dear blogging friend of mine she had no idea I was going to turn up so you can imagine the look of total shock on her face when I walked into her living room. We have been friends for a couple of years now talking almost every day via email we even call each other now and then but we had never actually met until Wednesday and it was lovely to finally be able to give her a massive hug for being such a lovely friend.
Anyway we got home latish Thursday evening and as you can imagine I have been suffering since with the pain in my ears everywhere was so loud people shouting , on mics  kids screaming plus the noise in the car travelling aaarrrrggghhhhhhhh.
So on to my card can you believe it's been a year since Amy's 21st Birthday yes this coming Frinday she will be 22 ( did you know that comes after 21 yeah it does I know shock) so of course I have had to get cards done for the fami;y to send. I have already shown the one I did for my mom to send Here but need to get one done for both Carol (Phil's Mom) and May (Phil's Nan Amy's Great Nan) to give and they needed them for this weekend  eeekkkkkk best get me finger out. So what did I come up with with a mojo that is only working part time well I shall show you
 papers are freebies as per and I went for a precoloured image which is by an artist called Bella Pilar this image is so apt for Amy as she acts like such a Princess at time (she will not appreciate that comment lol)so that is why I went with it
I kept it very simple adding just some pink gems and a fussy black organza bow

 and as you can see taking a paper to match the top in the image. I distressed the edges of the papers and inked with DI's picke raspberry black soot and iced spruce then matted onto white card

 the sentiment was created on my computer and I also made the insert to match
and of course regular readers will know that every card I make for May has to have a good verse in so I did a double whammy for this one and brought the image in to tie it all together. And that is about it I will love and leave you and see you all soon.
these are the challenges I am entering the card into Birthdays  embellish it bright sparks (this card is really clean and simple for me that is why I'm entering)  no digi's or stamped images  digital delights

Before I go I thought I would share this pic Phil took of me while in Newcastle Thursday
