A real sweetie

Hi everybody

My internet connections have been playing up since late yesterday evening, so consequently I feel as if I am behind.  It still wasn't working early this morning, but just before lunch it came back, but by then I was off out for a girlie lunch with my best friend.  No booze because of driving, but some nice food and lots of chat, and a wonder around a garden centre looking at all the lovely autumn colour.

At the  Anything Goes Challenge  this week we are looking for real sweeties - over to everybody to decide what that is to them, as long as it connects to food that is fine.  Please pop along to the blog - there are some fabulous examples from the team this week.

For my card I have used an LOTV image, coloured with Copics as usual, and some stickles added to the icing on the cake, the starts, and candle.  The Christmas Tree die cute was in a pack of paper amd other things I got from a friend, so I kept it and have glammed it up a bit.  I am not sure what pad the paper comes from as it was falling apart and I threw the covers away.  Flower from stashm and leaves cut with a punch.

Don't forget you can get lots of fab crafty stash at The Craft Den.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Sketch & Stash - followed the sketch
Party Time Tuesdays - Anything Goes
Heart Songs Inspiration - Gold or Glitter
Make It Monday - Always Anything Goes
My Partner In Crime - Use a Freebie - my Christmas Tree was a freebie

I really appreciate it that you take the time to look at my blog and leave such lovely comments. Thank you each and every one of you.
