Hello again - here I am for my last post of today but first of all I would love to thank some new followers - Sarah, Kevin, Joanie and Joyce - I hope you like my cards and my waffles, I go on about what is happening to the cats, the garden, the maestro (hubby) and anything else that I find totally funny or even bizarre!  
Anyway this is a card I made for the DT of Crafty Time Challenge - this is our second challenge and I would like to thank everyone who took the 'time' to enter our very first challenge - you are absolute stars and you made some amazing creations.  

We are being sponsored this month by Nikki Burnette and the prize is -

Winners to receive
1st Place - 3 images
2nd Place 2 images
3rd Place - 1 image

I chose the image Raven Mask Masquerade - Rayne to colour and make into my Girls, Girls, Girls themed card.  I wanted to use black and red so I coloured my image in these two colours and used some purple and blue Distress Inks as a background.  There's absolutely loads of ways to interpret our theme this month so I am hoping that you can enter our second challenge without too much thought!

Thank you for popping over to check out my last card for today.  I know I have four challenges up for you to enter (including yesterday's) but all the DT's would love to see your creations.  This is for anyone who has managed to get to the bottom of this post - I'm offering a little mystery prize to the first person who comments on this card and tells me where the boo boo is on my red and black creation!  Don't be afraid there is one particular boo boo and I'm quite happy to deny or confirm!!!!!

Lots of hugs to you and best of luck to the first one to notice it!

Love Sue xxx
