Happy Monday morning all :)
I'm hoping that Mr Blogger is on the ball today as I've left him to post this for me!! Eeek!
This week at Cute Daisy May we'd like you to make something to reflect 'Friendship'...
I have made a card for my Mum and was their 57th Wedding Anniversary yesterday, and I think to have made that, it has to be a really special friendship!!
Congratulations Mum and Dad x x x x

The Last One!! :0)

I'm back again!! ^.^
Well...DD No4 chose Pink and Green for her 2nd card...and as it happens Lime Green and Rose Pink are the two colours for this weeks challenge at Passion for Promarkers!! I have used the sketch from this fortnight's challenge at Delightful Sketches also.
It looks a simple sketch but it's taken me forever as I'm a bit of a perfectionist and had to have everything exact and line up perfectly!! lol.
Never was worth me anyway! :0)

I might even be back again later as I still have one more card to make and then...pressies!! All before the morning!! Eeek!!
Anyway... it's DD No4s turn to choose colours, and this is made using the sketch from this weeks My Time To Craft challenge and as it also has stitching on it I can enter it for the Creative Inspirations challenge too.
