A Cutie, A Card & 4 x Candy Winners

Hello peeps,
Once again time has run away from me, I was planning on having a craft day with Ali this week but somebody stole the days, somebody little, & it was the little cutie who has stolen my heart, my great nephew Ollie :)
Our little man has been to stay again for a couple of days and when I'm busy playing or watching The Magic Roundabout & snuggling on the sofa with him thoughts of blogging & crafting don't even enter my head lol.
My house is well equipped for Ollie, he has a toy box full of toys, bath toys, DVD's etc, basically everything a 21 month old could possibly want and his favourite items to play with are Copics, yes that's how much I love him lol.
Jodie took Ollie swimming yesterday morning & on their return home he toddled into the lounge chattering away & stood in front of me saying "cheese" (you can tell he's used to me constantly taking photos of him lol) so I quickly grabbed my camera and he then got straight down to creatively re-organising my Copics before he had even taken his coat & shoes off lol.

Down to business now & the new challenge at 
My card today is one that was comissioned for a Wedding, for a change from my usual silver I used white embossing powder and then inked the nestie.
 Ingredients -
Image - Magnolia Love Letter, Sentiment - Computer generated, Papers - Magnolia, Pins - homemade, Flowers - Wild Orchid & Kort & Godt, Pearls - Melissa Frances, Ribbon - May Arts, Sparkle - crystal glamour dust
 I'm entering my card in the following challenges - 
Just Magnolia - anything goes, Make It Monday - anything goes, Inspire Me Friday - anything goes, Willow Sketchie - with love / hearts, Crafts & Me - add a sentiment, Divas By Design - texture, Flutterby Wednesday - sparkle, My Mum's Craft Shop - love is all around, Penny's Paper Crafty - punches & dies, Totally Stampalicious - anything goes
