Henry does the combo (again!) ... and 3 lovely awards

Last night I managed to make a card that I'd like to enter into four challenges.

1. I followed the sketch for Papertake Weekly #22 which was great to work with.
2. Whiff of Joy #45 is bling - I have used glitter card for my swirls, and also Papermania silver gems for decoration and Stickles to decorate the cupcake (now I have a little confesion here .... I had a couple of little accidents with this card and so there is rather more bling on it than I originally intended to cover up my mistakes lol!)
3. BasicGrey #2 is a colour combo - pink, brown and yellow. Given that my colour scheme is pretty much pink & brown, I just thanked God that Henry is holding a lit candle !!
4. Stamp Something this week is Birthday Somethings

Main image: WOJ "Henry Mouse" which was an RAK from
Marcea - coloured with watercolour pencils and Stickles;
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards "Oh My Words!";
Papers: BasicGrey "Bittersweet";
Supplies: Flowers by Poppicraft, Papermania and from stash; Papermania silver gemstones; heart charm from
Dolls Made Up;
Tools: Sizzix swirl.

I have also been lucky enough to receive the following 3 fabulous awards from my blogging friends. I'd love to pass them all on to everybody, and I'm totally confuddled by now as to what the rules are for which one, so I've just kinda leapt in regardless lol!!

The first one is from Lyn (Spyder) .....

I would love to pass this one on to all the wonderful members of the PBSC DT - that is Beth, Carole, Debbie, Domi, Jackie, Jacqui, Kath, Marcea, Nat & Tracie.

The second one from Helen ....
.. which I would love to pass on to Linda, Sharon, Lyn, Elaine,

... and the third from Lovely Linda
which I would like to pass on to all the blogging members of a little friendship club I'm in ... namely Helen, Squirrel, Carol, Karen , Cathy, Samantha and Jo.

Woo hoo - I'm really thrilled - so thanks :-)
