The theme is

Let's go floral

So hop on over and check out what the other DT have created...
My card is a basic square card on white. The printed background with the sentiment is from Heartfelt creations, the Butterfly series I think. Love the sentiments on that one. The pink background paper is from my stash.
I added a die cut border, some 3d flowers from my stash, I tend to get most of those from ebay, and a cute little crochet flower, also from ebay. Just finished it of with some liquid pearls...
Hope you like it...

DT Card for Crafting with Dragonflies # 67 : Pinktober (Breast Cancer Month)

Hi everyone, over at Crafting with Dragonflies, a challenge blog I run, we have a very important challenge that means a lot to me personally.
 I wouldn't say we are celebrating Pinktober, which is Breast Cancer awareness month. But certainly making people aware. Sadly though we all know someone don't we?

I had Breast Cancer in 2004/2005 and survived. Sadly the cancer returned two years ago in places I don't want to talk about, and few other medical conditions. I am keeping on keeping on and I have faith I will get through this as well. 
I will not give up.
For me my faith and my family have been my rock.
The medication and treatment I am receiving is holding it at bay...
So I am very blessed indeed, and I am able to live my life as normal as it can be for me.
Please do your part, donate to your local cancer group, get involved, let all the women in your life know about the dangers, check your precious boobs weekly, get a mammogram and an ultrasound. Stay on top of it. Prevention is better than the cure...believe me.

So here is my card, and  I hope to see you in the challenge. Blessings Hilde

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Cut it up : Pink or Breast cancer awareness
Alphabet Challenge : P for Pretty in Pink
The Crafty Addict : Anything goes/use pattern paper
Sunny Day Crafting : Anything goes
Craftyhazelnut' s pattern paper : October/Anything goes with pattern paper

Entry for # 381 - What's on your Workdesk Wednesday

Hi all, it;s WOYWW today, and I there isn't much of a change. What you see on the main part is a book cover I am working on for my daughters 21st party on Saturday. I need to get on with it. I only just found all my bits for the Zutter that I want to use for the binding. It's been ages since I last used it and needed to check out a YouTube video to get me up to speed again. Love YouTube. Great for instructions of any kind. My youngest and the last party I have to pay for, lol. After this party,  all I have to do is sit back and relax, and let them (my 3 very grown up children) invite me....
(I am the forever optimist).LOL
Blessings Hilde

Entry for - What's on your Work desk Wednesday # 380

Hi all it's What on your Work desk Wednesday, check out the blog here
Why not join and be part of the fun.
Here is a photo of my very messy work desk at the moment. Need to tidy....urgently.
Had to leave everything in a hurry the other day and have not been able to get back to it yet. I am very blessed that I have my own space after all these years, and I don't have to pack it away all the time. The best thing ever.....
I call it a 'creative' mess. Funnily enough when the table looks like this I seem to get wonderful ideas and the card making just flows. Once it is as neat as a pin (which does happen on occasions) I sit there and ...nothing....go figure!!
