Hello there my most favourite blogsters, welcome to my Planet!  I have an extra special welcome to my new followers - I reached 90 - yes 90 followers this weekend.  I am so totally chuffed that you think I am worth following, especially when you know I am totally barking.  I will do another Candy prize when I reach 100 followers.

This card is being posted a tad late (as is the next one I will be posting - oooops!).  This is purely because I was a little poorly (AGAIN) last week - I had to sit upright in bed to sleep, now that would have frightened any burglar!  Coo I am sick of being so young!  As if!!!!!!  Hate to think what I'll be like in me dotage!  lol.  

The theme on Lady Anne's Challenge No 4 this month is Monochrome and we have been sponsored by 'Fred She Said Images' the prize being offered is a $10 gift voucher for their shop.  They have great images to choose from.  I chose this lovely little digi called "Smelling the Cherry Blossoms" and thought that I would colour her in various shades of brown.  This challenge runs through until 5 August, and I do hope you have the time to enter.
