chocolate soft centres

today i am showing this card i made for my mums birthday which is this week ~wanted to use a stamp i had not used before ~and found this one at the back of one of my stamp drawers ~why have i not used it before ~rubbish ink ~so now i have my stazon ~it stamps perfectly!!
i didn`t do any crafting over the weekend so was writing down all the challenges to get working on this week ~so many this week were chocolate, browns and pinks!!! could do so many challenges with this one card but decided on just a few.
firstly used this amazing sketch over on sketch saturday~not really one for lots of layers ~but hey really enjoyed making this card.
over on basic grey the challenge was "chocolate soft centres ! mmmmm always think of strawberry creams!
on one stop craft the challenge is "torn! so have torn my paper, and card. ~
then last but not least over on stamp with fun the theme is browns and pinks!!
(all links to the challenges are on my side bar.)
used basic grey perhaps, sultry elite and classy papers, fairy poppets stamp, see d`s word stamp, quickutz photo corners, gems from my stash, finished with glitter.

here is a close up of this sweet fairy.

just thought i would share these photos of lewis playing on the trampoline yesterday ~look at that hair!!!

gosh waffled a bit today!! bit over cast today, so inside playing!! byeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

Looks like he is having a grand time! It makes me think of when we used to rub a balloon on our head and then stick the balloon on the wall!!
