Hi all hope you are enjoying the Bank Holiday, if you are having one, as normal it is raining here in Gloucester they have even given out a 'Yellow' alert for flooding, and it gets worse, I lost my internet connection yesterday and my TV broke down.
But what saved my sanity was the joy of being able to do some extra crafting and colouring of some beautiful images.  Talking of beautiful images I have this one to show you today, I really wanted to make a card for the current My Besties International Challenge which is actually being hosted by Team A, I am on Team B, it was such an awesome honor to get involved and be able to do a reminder/inspirational post for FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO and this is what I created.
I have used an image called CUPCAKES and she is available HERE, she is new to me and I coloured her with Graph It Markers I then rounded off the edges and mounted onto pink card, I have added loads of pearls some, pink bows with diamante gems, buttons, butterflies, die cut flower and a sentiment. 
The papers are from my stash that I have had for simply ages, the doily die cut in the centre was actually sent to me by my blogging buddy Chris a very long time ago, she sent me quite a few of them, I have finally taken the plunge and this is the first one that I have used, I hate using stuff that I know I will never be able to replace, but I thought this was the perfect time to use this one as my all time favourite colour is Brown with Pink or actually any other colour but mainly pink.
A closer look at Cupcakes 
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
I hope that you will come join the challenge please pop over and check out the DT's fantastic creations they are awesome.
I would also like to thank everyone who has visited me over the weekend and that have left me a comment on my previous posts, I was wonderfully surprised when I finally got into my e-mail to find so many, I have yet to read them but please believe me I will and I will also be visiting later but I just needed to thank you all so much for your support and encouragement it means a lot to me.

So sorry you have internet trouble and your TV broke down. Hubby's computer has just ceased up and it says it can't be repaired automatically. I will have trouble as mine prints images via his link to the printer. HELP!!!!
Your card is gorgeous sweetie and your colouring is amazing. Enjoy the rest of your B/H Monday.
