Back again..with a little pink cutie!

Hi, I hope you are having a good weekend. We have had snow all weekend (again!). 
It seems like its been forever since i last posted. I have had a eventful few weeks. 
I have moved house which was a bit of a nightmare. I didnt realise that we had accumulated so much stuff. It was boxes in the loft of things that we dont use but dont want to bin either, some of it sentimental, some of it i just kept for the sake of keeping it. Anyway on the second day of moving i took ill, well more ill than usual! I have been in for tests upon tests. My GP and Consultant are amazing. I have had the best care and have had every test going twice over! They think that my symptoms are related to my Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia. 

Anyway enough about that. I have got a card made using the cutest Mo Manning digi stamp. "Walker" I love the wispy hair and cute little face!

Here is what i used...
Papers - Crafty Impressions Romanza paper stack and Tim Holtz Distress Core-dinations
Dies - Sizzix Damask & Scallop Border, Marianne Design Tag and Buttons, flourishes and Decorative Tags, Spellbinders Beaded Oval and classic oval.
Embellishments - Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, Ribbon, twine from Hobbycraft.

Here is another few pics of the card...        

I am going to enter the following challenges - 
One Stop Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
Clearly Inspired Challenge - Use Die Cuts 
Stampin for the Weekend - Childs Play 

That me for tonight. I have got so much catching up to do i dont know where to start!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend, or whats left of it anyway.
