Absolutely Wonderful!

That's how my weekend was, and that was Sonya's sketch this week for a Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. I'm sorry I was away for another week since I last blogged, but I had a very busy week, and I was offered a weekend break in our sister island, Gozo :) Definitely I had to say yes :) There were 7 of us, but we had such a great time! I definitely needed some me-time, and had some time to play as well. I got to visit the island's lovely craft shop : Binky Crafts. Made quite some shopping over there as well ; It is also an online shop for international customers, so if you want to take a peek, you'll find some goodies there as well.

Anyway, I did this card while I was there. Thanks Sonya for the lovely sketch.Unfortunately yesterday when I came back I had to clear all the things I had with me, and in the evening I was too tired to blog this card. Now I'm too late for the challenge!! Luckily I decided to go for the pink and brown colour combo, as I really love it.. as it tastes "chocolatey" and also because it's Charizma cards' and ISB challenge's colour challenge for the week.. I'm still in time for this one though!! Thank you for the lovely and kind comments I found when I came back. It's always a pleasure to hear from all of you, and you always make my day!!

EDITED TO READ: Oh my, ain't I the luckiest girl on the planet?! :) Simon says Stamp has a new challenge going on today (Wednesday).. the theme is.. Pink and Brown!!! :) Yippee.. so this goes for that challenge as well!

Blessings on you and your loves ones. I'm ready and charged for more. Whoever wants to contact me, I'll be delighted to hear from you. You can also use my e mail address, which you'll find in my sidebar. Have a calm and lovely week :)

MMmmm... chocolate and cupcakes!! :)
