Anything Goes ( including another challenge blog!)

Happy Saturday bloggies!  This is my card for two new challenges today - Basic Grey and CES Challenges.  Luckily for me both have a theme of Anything Goes, not so luckily for me, it's our last challenge at CES - I think I must be the bad luck fairy - two challenge closing in the same week - that's not very good is it!!
Not like me, this little fairy is so much cuter - one of the set of three baby fairies recently released by Mo Manning - so sweet - look at that little pot belly (hmmm, maybe he is like me!!!) 
My papers are some gorgeous new Basic Grey papers called What's Up.  From Crafty Emma's Store I've used my card blank, loose pearls, small blossoms, flower buttons and the Cat's Life Press sentiment.  I've also used my Flex and Promarkers as usual.

The little wooden ladybird was from some packaging decoration that I saved and the ribbon is from stash. 

At Crafty Emma's we're going out in style and have three prizes up for grabs this

1st Prize - £10 Voucher
2nd Prize - £7.50 Voucher
3rd Prize - £5 voucher
All excluding postage but all to spend in Crafty Emma's Store and she has lots of special offers as she winds down the business!

At Basic Grey we have our regular sponsor, Simon Says Stamp with a fabulous $25 dollar voucher on offer to one lucky entrant!

Pop on over here to see the final makes of the fantastic girls on the CES Challenge DT (missing you already!) and here for some fabulous Basic Grey makes by my still lovely, fellow teamies at BG Challenges!

I have a treat in store today, a trip to the Glitter Pot with best matey, Lesley, and we're meeting up with another fab friend, Alexandra Kamman, for a day of crafting and oohing and ahhhhing at Alex's fab craft stash and stunning Copic skills!!  I tell you, life has been very hard recently and it's just what the Dr ordered!!
Enjoy your day, whatever you have planned!
