Happy World Card making day and a combo of challenges!

Hi everyone I hope you are getting an abundance of cardmaking done on World Cardmaking day!!!! I sure am and loving every minute of it. I have had a busy few days I met a friend for a couple of drinks Thursday evening and yesterday I was interviewed for our church Alpha meal launch and it went quite well. I have three grumpy ill children and so that is making the weekend tiresome. My son is off to a party shortly so hopefully that will create a break in the friction, if you get my drift.
My daughter had a bit of an episode at school yesterday. During the service she was playing with another childs hair and she got told to stop. Anyhow she did not and carried on so the teacher went to get her out of the hall and she screamed NO. She is 4 and a half and she had to go to the head teachers office. So embarrassed as she did not act like this at nursery although she is like it here.
Onto the cardmaking. I have made this card for two challenges. Simon Says Stamp who are having a special challenge for the 24 hours, for world cardmaking day and for Basic grey challenge which is to use Martines fabby sketch.
I used an image by The Greeting Farm sent to me by Teri who is a fellow DT member on Winter Wonderland challenge blog. I coloured her with promarkers and stardust pens. I used Basic grey papers and some pearlescent paper. I added some doodles and charms and I used some jute. I added a peel off as the challenge at Simon says stamp is to make a card for Paige check out the simon says stamp challenge for further details.
