I really need to get some real sunshine!

I seem to have a thing for yellow at the moment as the last 3 cards I've made have all been predoninantly yellow and yellow isn't normally one of my colours it comes under the not me catergory with pink and red. I can only assume I'm subconciously craving sunshine as even though it has been glorious here today I have been helping my son revise his science still and though I suggested we did some revision outside he was having non of it so I conceeded and stayed indoors to help him keep on track. I keep telling him it's not for long and then he will have the whole summer so I guess that applies to me too.

This card I made with a teenage girl in mind, not sure who the recipient will be , a neighbours daughter or one of my step nieces as all have birthdays in June and July. There are a few challenges for easel cards around so I thought I'd combine them all along with a few other challenges too.

The stamp is obviously a magnolia and the papers are a mixture of scraps form my scraps folder, not many yellow bits left now but probably still enough for a couple more cards. The dotty ones were magazine freebies and the daisy one kay and co. The white textured card is recycled off a bought card mum recieved and gave me to see if I could use any bits of, waste not want not. I 3d'd tilda and added stickles to her wings and to some of the dotty paper. The gems I think were another magazine freebie form way back and the flower gem and ribbon from my stash.Think that's it.

The challenges I will be entering are listed below. Appologies if I'm not around much as Andrew's next exam is biology on friday and then he has an exam every day next week, because he is doing them at home we have to have the phones and doorbell unplugged , so that includes no tv and no internet so there are no possible outside noise distractions or electronic links that may allow him to cheat. A bit overkill I think as he has a scribe and an invigilator in the room with him but those are the rules so we must follow, hence I don't get to visit blog land at the time I would normally i.e. when his teacher is here.

The challenges:-
Lexi's creation-fab layout
Papertake weekly- say it with flowers( had to cut out a daisy as I didn't have a silk one and I have flowers on my backing paper and a gem flower hope this makes my card eligible for the challenge)
The Corrosive challenge-easel card
Paper sundaes- easel card
Rosie D's -easel card
Allsorts -birthday challenge and fab blog hop too
Just magnolia-one for the girls
Totally gorgeous-circles9hope my dots count)
Party time - birthday card
Sew many challenges- easel card
Raise the bar- yellow grey and white
Cute card Thursday- for someone special( my nieces are definitely special as is my neighbours daughter, she was attacked by a dog a couple of years ago at a new years eve party and had her face ripped off so is badly scared but has turned into a very beautiful young lady despite the scar and her beauty radiates from inside)
YNS- cut it out and pop it up
Magnolia stamp lovers-card with dimension
Bunny Zoe's gallery-3 flowers( I have one on my background paper, one as an embellishment and one gem flower hope thats ok), 2 designer papers, sorry I've used 1 extra, along with a bit of extra ribbon too) and 1 ribbon.

I can't believe my card fits so many challenges as I look through my note book hope I've not pushed the boundaries on a couple of the challenges too far, but I'm sure if I've broken the rules I'll find out. Have a great week and hope I get chance to pop back sooner rather than later, thanks for popping by to say hi too.
