I'm a Guest Designer at Not Just Cards (A Random Fan image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today/tonight I have the honor of being a guest designer at Not Just Cards. I am thrilled to bits as I love their challenge blog, they are always Anything Goes, you can enter as many times as you like and they have wonderful sponsors, what more could you want from a challenge blog hehe? They kindly let me choose an image from this week's sponsors and I couldn't go past this sweet little darling on her bike, isn't she adorable? You could win this or many other images if you enter their challenge.

I used some of my embossing folders (dusted them off hehe, I really should be using them more often) to create a little scene. My daughter was tidying her bedroom and gave me the cute little butterflies, they are for fingernails really but we thought they would be perfect for my cards seeing as she didn't want them anymore, lucky me!
