I have had a lovely Bank Holiday weekend but its been very quiet!  Seren went away with her daddy to Barmouth and won't be back until Sunday.  It's always nice to have a break but after the two days she is normally away I feel so alone!!  Will be glad to be back at work Wednesday as hopefully the days will go by quicker as they seem to be dragging lol!  

Friday night I went for a lovely curry and a few drinks around Newport, Shropshire and spent  Bank Holiday Monday in the pub with a friend for a lovely meal and drink which I haven't done before on a Bank Holiday Monday and really enjoyed it as it did take my mind off Seren not being here.  

Also totally lost my mojo recently hence why there has been only my DT cards on my blog.  Just cant get motivated at the moment.  Think also its because my craft room has most of my clothes in bags in there as I am in the process of awaiting new bedroom furniture and only have my old bed in the bedroom.  Should be next week that it all arrives though :-)  Hopefully once I get my clothes moved out I can maybe get back to entering some challenges.

I had a really enjoyable Saturday night when I went to a Greek restaurant in Wolverhampton to celebrate my ex-husbands' cousins 40th birthday!  Its a real shame most of her friends left before the most exciting entertainment began as no photo's were taken but both myself and his cousin had to dress up as bellydancers - my outfit I could only describe as minimal lol!  It consisted of a sequined bikini top  and traditional long skirt - god if only my mom could have seen me lol!  We were both dancing on the tables but did get a free cocktail for doing so!!

Anyway less of my weekend and onto this weeks Magical Monday Challenge which this week is a lovely sketch created by out very own Heidi.

We are being sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store who is offering a £10 store voucher to the winner.

Here is what I have created

I have used a digi image available from Cuddly Buddly called Twinkly Fairies Hello My Friends and coloured her in with promarkers and Sakura glitter pen on her wings.  I cut out with my plain circular nestie and pieced onto a scallop circle nestie.  The dp used is from Stampin up called Pink Passion.  The dp is from Papermania Henbury Lane paper pack.  I used my Martha Stewart Arches punch for the fancy edging, pink ribbon from my stash and pink gems from Hobbycraft.  The sentiment is from craftworkcards.

MAGICAL MONDAY DT CARD - Banners and Glitter

Haven't had much time to craft lately where do the hours in the day go lol!  Also still can't find my mojo but hopefully after this week away camping again with my daughter I will be alot better!!  We are off to Marden in Kent as my cousin lives nr there and she recently had a little baby girl so got to go and have a munch!!

Our challenge over on Magical Monday has a theme of Banners and Glitter as chosen by Heidi.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Pollycraft who are offering 5 digi's of the winners choice.

For my creation I have used Crystal Fairies 2 which is available for download from Pollycraft and coloured her in with copics and used Sakura pen on her wings.  The dp used is an assortment from a paper pack called Quite Contrary .  The cardstock is Regal Rose from Stampin Up.  To create the banners I used my Whiff of Joy Pennants die cut and added stickles around the edges.  The sentiment is from Pink Gem Designs pieced onto a scallop circle cut out with my SU punch and added stickles around the border.  The flowers are wildorchidcrafts and the pink gems were from Wynneth.

I have also seen that this also fits the challenge over on I Love Promarkers which has a theme of Things With Wings.
