I am an ogre!

Hi all,
Thank you so much for all your birthday wishes.
We had a lovely time at the NEC, although I was shattered at the end.  I got up at 5.45am to get the train and we didn't get back until 10.20pm.  I bought a few dies and nealry bought some spectrum noirs as I think I am the only one who doesn't use alcohol inks to colour in, but I'm still too scared to have a go!
Over at Incy Wincy, we are sponsored by the fab Kenny K, and our theme is girl power.  I have used this fab Kenny K image, because it reminds me of Princess Fiona in Shrek 4 when she becomes a warrior (which is where the title quote comes from).  I have watched all four Shrek films many times as the girls love them.  The papers are a mix of Papermania and Hot off the press.  I think the card looks a bit plain to me, but I didn't want to use flowers to embellish as they don't fit with the image in my opinion.
See you later.

You certainly did make a day of it at the NEC Nikky but pleased you enjoyed it. I was shattered by lunchtime, but still managed to good haul.

A lovely card and the ripped edges somehow go very well with the image.
