Good morning my crafty friends,
I know I have been a bad blogger of late, I'm blaming my return to work for this. Due to the type of work I do I have been given an admin job till I feel confident enough to go back on the wards. The only trouble is the job is completely new to me, requires lots of concentration & is computer based, so by the time I get home the laptop is the last thing I want to see!!! So please accept my apologies and bare with me.

Judith is hosting a new challenge today with Team A over at
Her chosen theme is:
Make a card with the word Happy on it!
Nice easy one this week & Judith has put together a surprise goody bag for one lucky entrant. 

I have used the Cosmos image from A Passion for Stamps. I coloured it  yellow as I think this is a 'HAPPY' colour. The card base was cut with a grand scallop circle, the mats were cut with the Martha Stewart circle cutter. The dotty mat on the base of the card was embossed with the 'dainty dot' embossing folder from spellbinders are it was cut.

Hop on over to the main challenge blog for more super ideas from the talented DT. You might like to visit their blogs too which you can do by clicking on their name,s they all love to receive comments.
