Today is an Inky impressions Celebration!

Hi Blog friends

Firstly I'd like to say a big hello to my new followers, its so nice of you all to join me - I hope I've been and visited you all - if not I'll be doing some visiting once I get myself back into the swing of things ... so many cards ....not enough time!!

Today its time for another fab challenge from Inky Impressions.  I decide I'd give roller skating Lili another outing.  I used her for the first time to make a tag for last weeks challenge at MAWTT but really think she deserve so much more!  So this week she's been promoted to her own card - and an easel card at that!

I did some serious craft shopping at Michaels craft store while I was in Florida, brought back some fab embellies that we just don't see here in England and also some fantastic bargains - what with 30% off Martha Stewart punches and my 40 and 50% off vouchers I was on a real roll.  I was allowed 3 visits! - I got dropped off at Michaels while the supermarket shop got done or some other visit to a local shop that I didn't want to see - seemed like a fair deal to me!!  My first great bargain was the set of grand nesties that I used for this card.  I've been lusting after a set for a while now but just couldn't bring myself to pay the prices here in the UK - but with my 50% off one item voucher I nabbed them for around £16 - bargain or what!!  I also got the cherry embellies and the ladybird in a couple of different sets these are from Jollees from EK success a brand we don't see much of in the UK but they do fab embellies- and they were on offer too- how could I not buy them!

This is what I did....
