I should be so lucky, lucky, lucky, lucky

 Hi all,
Well, it's nearly the end of another week.  I can't believe that in two week's time, Daisy will have finished her first year at school.  Where did the time go?  She is going to her first school disco tomorrow evening and is very excited about it.
To continue my title - I have been very lucky this past week.  First, I received a wonderful parcel from Belinda, stuffed full of goodies.  I won a follower giveaway on her blog (being the observant person I am, I didn't even realise she was having a giveaway!)  Thank you again, Belinda.  Here are the goodies:

Then, yesterday I read that I had won the bird challenge at Cupcake craft and today I got a lovely email saying I had won the monthly prize at Feeling Sketchy.  I also got a top 4 place with my Fair Layout from the previous challenge, which was a big surprise as I'm not really a scrapbooker.
Anyway, we are finally onto my card.  It is hubby's middle brother's birthday on Saturday and when he was asked for ideas for a present, one suggestion was an Audi A5.  I found this fab image from The Graphics Fairy and thought that he might change his mind about the make of car if he saw what this could do!  I have used the fab sketch from Feeling Sketchy, but used a button instead of a bow.
See you later.
