3 challenges and a bit of dressing up!

I made this card yesterday for the Whiff of Joy challenge, which this week is a sketch designed by Heather, the image is one that Jacqui very kindly sent me so that I could join in with the challenges as I don't have any of the stamps myself. and oh my goodness how gorgeous are they, I just loved putting this card togetherthe following card is for todays Cute Card Thursday challenge which is 'buttons and bows' and also for todays Lili of the Valley challenge which is 'enchanted'. Not actually a stamped image but a die cut so I hope my card counts! I've actually had them since last year can you believe that, all I did was add a few sparkles and added it using foam pads to my triangle card which is made using 3 squares of card, the corner of 1 side fits through a slot to keep it together.Today is 'dress up' day at school and the children have had the chance to go in dressed as a person from any nationality, it's 'World Foreign Languages day' or something like that! I didn't want to 'have to' go out and spend a load of money on dressing up costumes and my imagination wasn't that good to put something together, so last weekend mum found my indian dress that I wore many many years ago when I used to perform in the village pantomines! All I had to do was add the brown leggings, just to keep Lillie's legs warm, and last night made the headband which she loved!! and here's Hollie in her little outfit which when I bought it off of ebay it was being advertised as a traditional singapore airways air-stewardess's uniform!! It does have a 'singapore collection' label in it, can you believe that, how tiny are these ladies??? I think Hollie looks adorable and loved posing for the pictures this morning!
and here are Lillie and Hollie posing together. I've printed this picture on A4 photo papers this morning and it is just gorgeous!!
and finally Pass the Penguin!
I have just picked up this little penguin from Rach. October is breast cancer awareness month so feel free to add him to your blog and raise awareness. My MIL found a cancerous lump 5 years ago luckily she has beat this awful disease but I know others aren't always so lucky. So pass the penguin on to raise awareness. 'Squish a boob, save a life'.
