A new challenge at Diva's by Design

Good morning friends.

Hope you are all having a good week. I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed as we have had a bit of a worry this week. Our daughter Kayleigh who is only 28 weeks pregnant started with contractions on Sunday. They have thankfully slowed down now so we are hoping that she is able to hang on for at least another few weeks.

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Diva's by Design. The theme is Anything Goes and we are being sponsored by Live and Love Crafts. I could spend a fortune at this store as they have so many beautiful crafty products. The DT's have some beautiful cards for your inspiration and it would be lovely to see you join this challenge.

I have used the adorable Magnolia Special Moments Doo Bee Pops Tilda - she is so cute.

She has been coloured with my favourite colouring medium at the moment which is Distress Markers. The papers are Pion. I am running out of these gorgeous papers and I can see a spend coming on!!!

The large pink flower is from the Hobby House. The white cluster is from Live and Love crafts as is the Frantage and papers. The remaining flowers are all from WOC.

The ribbon and gems are from my own stash. I have glittered the balloon with Diamond Sparkles.

I am entering this card into the following challenges

Inky Chicks - Pretty in Pink
Oldie but goodie - Dies and Punches. (Catalina wreath)
A Creative Romance - Dies or Punches
Created with Love - Anything Goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Flowers
Fashionista Challenge - Anything goes.
Sugar Creek Hollow - My Rose Garden
Papertake Weekly - Make it Sparkly
Lovely hAnglar - Favourite embellishment (Frantage and Flowers)

Enjoy the rest of your week and I will see you all very soon.

Hi, Sharon. Sorry to hear about Kayleigh, and hope that she is able to relax those contractions into oblivion so that your grandchild is born at a healthy age. (I do realize we don't have a lot of control over that, tho). Prayers for Kayleigh. Your Divas by Design card is gorgeous - love the frantaged elements, and the darling floral bouquet. Do you find that your adhesive pearls stick to the EP, or do you adhere them with glue as well? xo

Sharon, this is so gorgeous--love the design & all the fab die cuts! Love your flowers & bling, too! And your darling image is beautifully colored! :^)
I had contractions with my daughter in early December of 1971 and managed to deliver her at the due date of February 10, 1972. I had two weeks of bed rest and then took it easy after that. Kayleigh could do the same thing. I'll keep good thoughts for her. :^)
Hugs, Penny
