Moving Along With The Times 'Only Girls Allowed' Challenge

Good morning everyone. What is going on with this weather, one minute we have sunshine the next snow!

I had a lovely week in Malta last week, the weather felt quite chilly at times due to the high winds they were suffering but once I stepped off the plane back here I realised just how warm it really had been lol. I am suffering from painful legs and back due to the little amount of walking I did but mainly due to the bad roads they have. I also have an infected mouth from the wind, it started as a cold sore but has gone on. Both are worth the pain as it really is a beautiful country to travel around.

I am off to see Strictly Come Dancing at Nottingham on Friday evening so resting plenty so that I am ready to go because I can't wait. I have wanted to see it since it started and finally this year my mum and decided to have a girls day out and go.

Anyhow onto the matter in hand, this week at Moving Along With The Times Pami set us the challenge of 'Only Girls Allowed' so anything girlie is acceptable. We have the honour of having Kenny K as our sponsor and they provided us with some great images to play with. I have used Jasmine on my card and really enjoyed colouring her. I made what I think is called a sideways z fold card but not totally sure, I saw the style on someone's blog awhile ago but they didn't say what it was called.
