Layer It Up

Hello everyone, brrr it's really chilly over here at the moment... Well it's not really really that cold at 12C, but I do feel very cold, and we also had a hailstorm yesterday with many cars and crops getting damaged unfortunately. Streets were also covered in white for some time so everyone was talking about it since this is a very rare occurrence here in Malta. I was so lucky I was at the office at that time, and my car parked inside as well, so no damage done.

Anyway, here I am today with a card that I made for the new challenge that started today at

The challenge for this week  is 
So we want to see lots of layers and of course colouring with Promarkers, Aquamarkers, Flexamarkers or Triamarkers.

For my card today I decided to use this fun image from DigiStamp Boutique, Shopping Alyssa, which I immediately fell in love with when I had seen her in one of my blogging friends' cards. Well it's only today though that I had the opportunity to use her and I am so happy I did, she is so cute. 

The two DP that I used are from Wild Rose Studio, I stamped on the one at the back, the flowers are from Papermania, and the bottom die is Memory Box.

We are this week sponsored by Di's Digis and the prize for the lucky winner is $10 to spend in the store.

I have two lovely news today as well... but these are from last year as I still hadn't blogged them yet!!! 

So I made the Top 3 at the Winter Wonderland Challenge 
with this card

and I also was the very lucky winner at the All that Scraps Challenge Blog, winning three rubber stamps of my choice.... which I have now received this week as well! woo hoo so exciting :))
Winner badge

Hello...long time no see. It looks like you have been a busy crafter. I love this card by the way. Something with shopping is always a good stamp to use. Can't wait to browse through and see more of your creations. It is good to have some mojo back with blog land.
