Bank Holiday Blues!

Good Morning Everyone, how's the weather with you? It's gone a bit dull here in Hull, must be with the Bank Holiday coming up. Haven't made any plans for the weekend yet as the weather doesn't look too promising.  Hubby is recovering from his little operation so we might just have a couple of days at home (when I can colour and make cards ;-) and then maybe see about going out on Monday as it looks like it will be a bit brighter by then.

It's challenge day again over at

This week the challenge is being sponsored by
The challenge this week is FOR THE GIRLS, so we're hoping to see lots of lovely girly cards, the more ribbon, bling and sparkle the better!  I've used a stamp from LOTV this week - it's one I was given for Christmas and this is the first time I've used her but think she'll be coming out to play a lot as she's turned out lovely.  She's called Dancing Queen.  I've used the sketch from Sketch N Stash Challenge 139 for this card, this is what it looks like
And this is my finished card
