Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge.....& a special event coming up!!

Hi everyone I'm running rather late today on my DT post as my daughter has not been well so this is the only chance I've had to do my post, so I'm just gonna get on with it peeps.
This week over at Cowgirl Up we have a new challenge for you, this is everyone's favourite so there is no excuse not to join in...
This week is 'AnythingGoes'

Our sponsor this week is the fab 'Michelle Perkett' & the winner will receive 3 images of their choice. Go over to her shop & take a peekskie at her images they really are fabulous....
The Top 3 also get to choose 1 image from Cowgirl Up Images, all winners get their badges as well to display on their blogs.
Here is my card for this week.....

This is 'Check Faery' & she is from Cowgirl Up & available here
The papers are Basic Grey 'Olivia' which I brought from Crafty Emma's Store I love these papers, the colours are beautiful. The corners were cut out using my cuttlebug. All the edges of everything were inked with 'Tattered Rose' distress ink & then the edges were distressed with my distressy tool lol. The ribbon is from my stash as to is the gem in the middle of the ribbon. The flowers I made myself out of cut out shapes which were then inked with 'Tattered Rose' & 'Worn Lipstick' distress inks, then wrinkled & screwed & once made up they were sprayed with lashings of CC shine 'n' spray.

This is the close up of the card.....the image is so pretty. I coloured her using Promarkers & the wings I coloured with a Sakurra Gelly pen.

This is a close up of the box, it is a Thankyou card with a box that also contains little thankyou postcards to send out to people that you may need to thank. Sorry I forgot to take pics of the notes, I actually took the pics over a week ago so I've not had chance to take new 1s today. The image is coloured the same way as the card. The flower I made but differently to the 1 on the card.
Well thats it for me on this challenge but please carry on reading as I have an announcement for an inportant event coming up.

Challenges I will enter with this card are.....

Right now onto this upcoming event which I think is quite an inportant 1 as I'm sure you will agree. The event is......

In next weeks challenge we are asking people to make christmas cards but not just to enter into the challenge but to send away to the soldiers fighting to protect us!!! They have no way of buying any cards but they would love to send their loved ones back home a christmas card to let then know they are missing them, maybe even more this time of year. Now I must stress though that there is to be NO GLITTER what-so-ever, these soldiers go out in all terrain & at night, they dress themselves in a way as they wont be seen, if you add glitter to your cards or anything that is glittery it may fall off onto a soldiers clothing thus making it easier for him to be seen!! I know this is hard for a lot of you, me included I love glitter lol, but PLEASE dont, thankyou.
There are a few sponsoring this event so there are a few goodies to be won so please join us in this special event.....pop on over to Cowgirl Up for more information. We think this is a fantastic thing to do & a chance to get ALL crafters involved.

PHEW.....that was a long post even for me lol.
Well I'm really gonna have to go now back to my little girl.
Hope you are all having a great weekend.
Thankyou so so much for visiting me & leaving your wonderful comments.
Lotsa hugs
