Happy Valentines Day to one and all.  Wow what a week it has been weather wise, we have had gale force winds, tons of rain, thunder, lightening and snow.  I have heard this morning that the army are down at the Quay in Gloucester laying sandbags as the canal is about to flood the road, the River Severn has burst it's banks and there is still more forecast, roll on Spring.
I also have some more wonderful news to share with you and that is I have won another place in the top 3 at Graph It Challenge and have been showcased on the Scribble and Scrap Challenge blog, it is amazing so I would like to say a big thank you to the DT girls.
Today I have a card that I made and would like to enter it into a few challenges:
I will also be entering this card into the Aurora Wings Facebook Challenge - Favourite Flowers
For my card I have used an image from Aurora Wings called Girl With Lotus Flowers, I have coloured her with Graph I Markers, the gingham is some shabby card-stock that I got from Create and Craft, the papers are a mix, I have used black card to mount the papers and image on as I have used a 7 x 7 black card base.
I have used my EK Success circle cutter also my SU border punch, I added some small gold butterflies to the image, flower pearls and a couple of hearts the sentiment is stamped.
The Graph It Markers used are as follows:
1170, 1180, 1210, 1230, 1250,2105, 3110, 5115, 5110, 5120. 5130, 4120, 4115, 4110, 4155, 8220, 8250, 8270, 9100, 9102, 9103, 7125, 0000, silver sparkle pen,
The picture below is a closer look at the image. 
I do hope that you like my card and have enjoyed your visit, I have loved the comments that I have received and I will be visiting you but it may be a little late as my son has asked me to go and stay with my mum tonight so he can romance his young lady.
See you soon.

We certainly have had it all weather wise this week Lorraine and as I write this it is absolutely throwing it down outside. Our paddocks are under water but we are still far better off than some poor people.

But your card is bright and cheery and a very welcome sight.
