"There Was So Many Times, Looking Back When I Was So Afraid, And Then You Come To Me And Say To Me, I Can Face Anything..."

First let me congratulate Debby for guessing the lyrics in my previous post title as being those of "I Go To Sleep" by The Pretenders. Hopefully this one is a little harder (no using Google either, let's use the old honesty box for these eh!)
Second, but most important really, It's competition time over at the Kenny K Krafty Krew Challenge site. The theme is (as always) Anything Goes but the twist this fortnight is Pastels. There appears to be some confusion over which cards can be entered into the challenge as we still have a few people entering non-Kenny K image cards, so please be aware; if you enter a card that doesn't have a  Kenny K image on it then it will be ignored completely and you will have wasted your precious time for nothing!
The challenge will run for two weeks so get yourself out there and show us what you can really do. Don't forget, the winner of the candy should also be announced today, so good luck and I will keep my finger crossed for you.
As you can see from my card for the current challenge, I have worked with Pastels and I really enjoyed it. I know Mothering Sunday was yesterday but I can reassure you that my Mother really loved her card. I was a bit gutted I couldn't find a stamp that said Mothering Sunday as I believe in sticking to the British traditions but she didn't even notice (Bless her!). Jo and I went to see Mum at my Sister's house and we had a really lovely day together, plus an even more lovely dinner. My Sister has picked up a lot of my mam's ways of doing things in the kitchen and with her own added twist of culinary genius, we ended up having a wonderfully traditional Sunday Roast.
Back to the card and you can see that I have used a really beautiful corner die (in the Pink, as 'twer) which I got a few years ago from Marianne Designs, the little curly fronds behind the flower are some of the waste from the large die and I thought they looked perfect behind the flower. The flower itself is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the leaves are from Marianne too (but don't hold me to that!!), the rest of the stuff used is from my stash!!
So that's it from me, don't forget to try and work out the song from the lyrics in my post title, hopefully I will be back again before the next Kenny K Challenge.
Take Care,
