Lovely bubbly

Hello lovely people,

Brrrrr, it's a bit chilly here in the UK but at least yesterday the rain stopped and there was quite a bit of sunshine!

I thought I would be scraping the ice off the car before heading into the hospital today but amazingly there was no frost.
I am going in lots this week to try to build up the practice hours I need for my course.

While I am exercising my little grey cells (yes, both of them!), we have a new challenge for you at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

Paper or non-paper project
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is Digi Stamp Boutique with a £10 voucher

It has to be paper for me as I don't do any non-paper crafts and I do love my pretty papers, especially the pink ones!
This design is pretty restrained on the paper front for me as I thought the image suited a clean modern look.

Girly celebration card featuring Party Zara by Digi Stamp Boutique

I am rather partial to some bubbly too and I think this pretty lady has the right idea with that HUGE glass!

Kat - this is gorgeous. Your colouring is beautiful - I have n't seen that image before and your interpretation is amazing - (I too rather like bubbles)! Super card design too - you have put everything together so perfectly and your card is truly stylish and elegant. (Hope you had a good time adding practice hours and the cakes were a hit)!

I'm here at last.... to catch up on my commenting - and wow - I've missed some gorgeous cards here! Firstly - this little lady with her gorgeous pink eyeshadow and large glass... your colouring is stunning - particularly those folds in her skirt.. and I love the (relatively!) CAS look you've given the card! Perfect!

Big hugs
