This Thursday challenge

This will be my first entry into my first on-line weekly challenge blog! So: ta-da!

As you may have guessed, I'm a big Pink Petticoat fan and regularly check out the site's blog. A posting earlier in the week by Liz (the lovely founder/ creator of all things Pink Petticoat-ish) mentioned a challenge she's sponsoring with This Thursday, and I thought I'd give it a go!

All papers are (no surprises) by Pink Petticoat. I added seed beads and
punched holes as additional embellishment; the font is Rebecca's Birthday. I tried to make the loopy arrow look 3-D by chalking in the appropriate places, and mounting with foam pads - I think it's worked (?).

My cousin and her family have just emigrated to Australia, hence the sentiment.

I'd love to know what you think...

I'm going to have a go at other weekly challenges - the incredibly generous and helpful
Dawny suggested it too. I'm hoping it will give my often sluggish creativity a workout. All I have to do now is remember the dead-lines!

Fabulous card Sara - LOVE that arrow!
And congratulations on winning : )
I think I'm right in thinking you already have Tis the Season. So if you'd like to let me know if there's anything else you'd like instead, or even wait until there's something new, I'm more than happy to send something else to you as your prize : )
And thank you so much for joining in.
