Little Fluffy Clouds...


Morning Flufferoonies! I'm in a chatty mood today! It must be the sunshine going to me 'ead! ;)

Have you noticed the shiny new badges in my sidebar? So proud. As I told Delphine last night, I'm a bit like a swan. All calm and elegant up top. Underneath, I am frantically hyperventilating!

So, Wednesday morning means time for a new Challenge over at MMCS:

Something Old, Something New...

We are sponsored by A Day For Daisies. I've been noticing A Day for Daisies images popping up in BlogLand, and I'm a fan, so it was a real pleasure to play with this one.


I've also been admiring cloud backgrounds, they look so cool. I've been wanting to have a go for a while, but been a bit 'worried'. So this image sat on my desk, coloured apart from the background, while I stopped at Dorcas and Annekas' Blogs. They both do the most amazing things with pencils! I got even more terrified after paying them a visit, so the image sat there a little longer. I eventually got the guts and kind of did my own thing. No way near as good as Dorcas and Anneka would do, but you get the gist!

My Something News are the image, buttons and seam binding. (Totally cleared Baggage Control!) The Something Olds are the flower punch and the nesties I used to create the frame. Which reminds me, I was chatting to Mrs A last week about nesties and frames, thanks for the inspiration Mummy! This one's for you. ;)

So, don't forget to pop over to MMCS for all the details and to see the pretty cards from the rest of the DT. Best be quick, I've been yabbering here for so long, the Challenge is probably over by now!

Oooh and I'm going to enter this at:
