Crafty Friends DT Card - Anything Goes

Hi everyone

Thanks so much to everyone for the get-well wishes, I really appreciate them :) I'm feeling so much better now and I've almost caught up on everything too, so all good! I've had two college exams this week and I did really well in both of them! Much better than I expected, so I'm really happy!

The theme of this week's challenge over at Crafty Friends Challenge Blog is
Anything Goes
Here are details of this challenge's wonderful sponsor... 

One lucky winner will receive $7.00 of digital stamps of their choice from the store.

For my card, I used this adorable image Cup of Love - I'm trying to build up a Christmas card stash, so if I can use my DT makes to add to this pile I will! This image isn't a Christmas image per se, but coloured appropriately I think it works quite well :)

All Dressed Up October Facebook Challenge

Good evening everyone!

I was on holiday for two weeks, and on the flight home I got so sick that the paramedics were waiting for me when the plane landed, worst flight ever :P When you're at 30000 ft and can't see, feel your arms or face and your heart-rate is about 30 bpm and you can't stop vomiting, it gets pretty terrifying. Still not quite sure what went wrong, but a week later I'm feeling much stronger but still a bit delicate. 

Anyway, I'm playing catchup on all aspects of life at the moment, the post-holiday laundry pile seems to be never ending, I have so much college work to do I don't even want to think about it, and there's a few card orders due already so I'm feeling the pressure :P I need to concentrate on my health first though, as I can't do much if I'm dead lol. 

So, a few days late but better late than never. The All Dressed Up Facebook Challenge for October is the theme of "Autumn or Halloween". 

I used the adorable image Magical Day for my card.

Here's what I made :)
