I made a bit of a boob.

A colleague from work is taking part in the "Moon Walk" next weekend,for anyone that hasn't heard of this,it's a 26.2 mile walk around London that is done at night, wearing a bra to raise money for Breast Cancer. Good luck to her,she's been building up the amount of miles that she walks over the last few weeks and now feels prepared for it.(Rather her than me)

So I thought I'd make her a good luck card in the spirit of the the walk. I fashioned the card out of glittery spotty paper with the use of my Sizzix Revolution nesting circles along with my Nestability scalloped circles. The flowery background was made with the use of a flower punch. I'm going use this card for a couple of challenges, The Shabby Tea Rooms where the challenge is to Get your bling on and also Catch the Bug Challenge Blog
where the challenge is to use flowers.
I've had a great day today,catching up with crafty friends at the Scrapbook Sister's crop. didn't get much done except for chatting but it was a brilliant day out! Did discover a clever little trick with the aid of a Nestability Heart,It's probably been done somewhere before but it's not something I've seen anywhere, as I'm not lucky enough to own the hearts I will have a little play with some of my Nesties and hopefully share this with you.
Hope you have a good weekend,
thanks for stopping by,
Julie x
