Ringa Ringa Rosies.....A pocket Full Of Posies...& pics of my new car

Good evening once again all you lovely peeps, 2 posts in 1 day arnt I doing well. I have made another quickie card tonight its for 2 challenges. The 1st is Pocket Full Of Posies their theme is 'Lavender & Lace'. The 2nd challenge is Inspirational Sketches & their sketch is this....
So here is my interpretation of it...

Again I've used a scalloped card from Crafty Emma's Store I love these they are fab if you are wanting knock up quick cards, usually I make my cards from A4 & 12x12 card. The papers are Memory Box 'Gossamer' from Emma's Store, these are gorgeous papers in pretty soft colours. They have had their edges inked with Milled Lavender distress ink. The bow & lace are from my stash, the umbrella charm is from Emma's. The large flower & the small purple 1s are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the rest of flowers are from my stash they have also been spritzed with glimmer mist but it was hard to catch on camera.
Meet 'Spanish Tilda'

She is from the Bon Voyage collection, yet another 1 that I still hadn't inked up until now. She is coloured with Promarkers & the edges of her dress & the flower in her hair has Purple Stickles on....just to give it a bit of bling, doesn't she look so so pretty.
I have made this card for my step-mum because she looked after Natalie on Saturday while we went to get hubby's boat from Scotland......its the 1st time we've left her with someone for nearly 2 years but with her been poorly all week we didn't want to push her too much. So I've made a card to say thankyou & I'm buying her some 'Me To You' slippers tomorrow....she loves Tatty Teddy lol.
Right as promised I've put a couple of pics of my new car as some of you know I'm not a girly girl especially when it comes to cars....well I didn't get a car as such I got this....

Its my pick-up truck & I absolutely love her, she is big & beefy & growls like a beast on wheels lol. You can just see hubby's boat there beside it lol. Normally I drive a black van with seats in the back & room for Natalie's wheelchair, you can just see it by my railings with the blacked out windows.

Here is my beast from the back, the roll bar just got fitted today by my hubby, it was the first thing I brought for it I'm ordering the front bull bar tomorrow for it lol. Told you I wasn't a girly girl lol.
Well thats it for me tonight I'm hopefully gonna link this card up I've had a nightmare with Blogger today so please forgive me if I havn't gotten to your blogs I will certainly be trying again tomorrow.....ggrrrr the damn thing.
Anyway nighty night peeps sleep tight dont let the bed bugs bite......
Thankyou for stopping by once again you all rock da house!!!! lol
Lotsa hugs Vicky xxx

Gorgeous card, Vicky. Loving Spanish Tilda and the posy is beautiful :)
Ooooh, we're getting a beast pretty soon too! AND it'll be silver... Navara, but I doubt we'll be having the roll bars because it'll be a covered back, I think. Anyway, she's a beaut and it's making me all excited seeing yours. Have fun!!!

Meesh. xx
