Saturday Challenge, Polka Doodles and C.R.A.F.T Challenges.

Hi again.
This is a card I made for my Mums' 82nd Birthday and it's not a card but a Wordbook (Sorry the photo isn't brilliant). I used the Funky Word Books CD Rom from Funky Hand.
The paper on the page with the cat has stripes and the flowers on the last page have spots on them. There are also flowers on the front which were a freebie on a magazine - Papercraft Inspirations I think, and hearts on two pages.
All will become clear soon!!!
The images are from the Boys & Girls CD Rom from Crafters Companion, there are some other embellishments from my stash as well. The fairy is from Clear Magic and is called Fairy Delights, I purchased it from Handy Hippo.
The challenges I am entering are as follows:-

Saturday Challenge where they would like something with Hearts and Flowers.

Polka Doodles where they would like Spots and Stripes

C.R.A.F.T Challenge where they want anything but a card.
I hope a wordbook counts!!
Tell me what you think blogging buddies!

Hiya, just had a scroll down. Looks like you a had a ball on holiday. That place looks lovely. Love the card with the messy rabbit, I bought that very stamp whilst away, great minds and all that eh? This one for your Mum is lovely and I'm sure she will treasure it. Hope my mate Bumblealsie isn't too annoying, he is a sweetheart really and loves to flirt with his 'crafty ladies'.
