You Brighten my Day.

Hello Everyone,

Before I share the details and challenges for my card this afternoon I have a request if someone could help me, please. I have noticed on various blogs that there are sometimes little "stylish blog awards" or "crafty superstar blog award" etc
I am interested in doing something here on my blog that will require me having to have one of those little "grab your blinkie here" things. However, I have no idea how to make one. So if anyone could provide me instructions or point me in the right direction, I would be most grateful!

Ok, so on to the card for today. First, I have to apologize for being so late getting it up. Just another one of those crazy days in life. I kept getting distracted and was having a hard time getting my thoughts in a straight line. You know how that is, I'm sure. I did this card for a variety of challenges which I have listed below. I used "Ducky Days" stamp set from Our Craft Lounge and used Copic Markers to color it in.

As you can see also, I changed the layout of the blog for February, I hope you like it! Have a great evening. I'm going to try and get around and do as much visiting and commenting as I can.

Challenges:

ABC Challenge: N is for Nesties. (I used label 8 nesties around my image)
Color Throwdown: I matched the colors as best I could with what I had. I don't actually have Early Espresso, so I substituted Choc Chip
Cooking it Up with Katie: Recipe (2 patterned papers, add some brown and use some metal) I hope my pastel yellow brads count as my metal pieces!
Pixie Cottage: sketch with the option to use buttons.
Sisterhood of Crafters: Anything Goes
