Feeling very proud of myself

Not only have I just spent and hour at the gym - yes working out and not just blethering,.... I have also made my first card for a blog competition with 2 children off school ill (well play acting as I like to call it) and luckily my youngest quite happily entertaining himself whilst keeping an eye on mum! 

Unfortunately it is not a very good picture.  My digital camera is eating up batteries quicker than you can switch it on, so I have had to rely on my scanner which does not really show the card of at its best...

The challenge is from Polka Doodles and has to include a bird somewhere on the design.  Not only is this my first attempt at a blog competition it is also my first attempt at using angel fibres (this is what is causing the glare from the scanner!!)  I have used images from the Back to Nature CD from Polka Doodles.

Its not very clear from the picture but the 3 circles are mounted on 2mm foam pads.  Will try to take another picture with my hubby's mobile phone in the morning when there is hopefully better light.  Keep your fingers crossed.  Off to have my well earned drinkie.  Vxx

Not sure that this shows it off any better but at least the glare from the Angel fibres has gone!
