Charisma Cards # 25 - Rubbernecker Week.......






























Hiya peeps!

I have to call my card the 'Katy card', because nearly everything on it was sent to me in a RAK by my friend Katy........ and to top it off my dd says I've made it in Katy's style too! I wasn't trying to copy Katy, I promise, lol! Obviously just inspired by the she does it and trying to move away from my over fussy style a bit too!

The gorgeous image is by CC Designs and is one of the new Swiss Pixies (thanks Katy I love it!). The scrummy paper is by October Afternoon available at The Craft Emporium and the black zigzag strips are Bazzill Just The Edge.

I'm entering my card into this week's Charisma Challenge where anything goes. You can enter up to four times and have the chance to win some fab prizes!

A huge thank you to everyone who gave me advice as to why my blog wasn't working properly - it's sorted now that the playlist has been removed.

I also wanted to thank everyone who left comments about my migraines........ I'm still not completely right and I don't think the heat helps, but I have another appointment at the docs tomorrow so I'll let you know when I have more news. You really are a caring bunch and it means alot ;o)

I'm dashing out now, taking ds to cricket practice so I'll catch you all in a bit!

Fantastic card Tara and such lovely goodies you received from Katy they're superb! Love your design and perhaps a little of Katy's style but you've definitely made it your own, it's beautiful! Hope all goes well at the Doc's Sweetie and I think the hot weather does make a difference with the headaches, it does for me too. Take care, hugs, Chris xxx
