I am now a school Mum

Hi all,
Daisy started school yesterday. She was so excited, she was ready in her uniform by 7.30am and then asked every 5 minutes when we were going to school! She does just mornings for the rest of this week and then she goes full time from Monday, which is when it will really hit me that she is now in the sausage machine of education for many years (even as a teacher I find this quite scary). I am going to have to find lots of fun things to do with Martha so she doesn't miss Daisy too much. Although there is a bit of an age gap (3 and a half years), they love playing together and Martha worships her big sister.
Anyway, the day has come in the week for me to showcase some of the fabulous digi stamps from Digital Delights. This week, I have used Dilly Duck and Ladybug. This is the second attempt at using this image. The first card ended up in the bin. I had a great idea, got the sewing machine out, finished the card and then ... didn't like it one bit. Luckily, I don't mind this one! The flowers are by prima and wild orchid, the papers are by Prima and the gems, ribbon and charms are from my stash.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Ladybug crafts ink - anything goes
Papertake weekly - anything goes
Shopping our stash - birds, bugs or beasts
Creations by Gill M - anything that flies
Have a good day.
