Woohoo, finally joining in a challenge (or 2)!!


Hi, I can hardly believe it .... I have made a card for 2 challenges, I am so happy, lol. It doesn't take much to put a smile on my face does it, lol. It really does seem so long since I took part in anything that it is quite exciting, lol.


A lady at work had seen my recent DT card for Just Magnolia and asked if I would make her a similar one for her niece's birthday in a couple of weeks, so of course I said yes ... perfect excuse for some fun. As you can see the card is for 'Ruby' so I have used these scrummy papers by Basic Grey which are perfect for this weeks colours of Red, Cream and Chocolate on Colour Create . I am loving my new roses and tied this sweet bunch with a little silk ribbon which means I also managed the extra option of a ribbon :o)




A really easy theme on Secret Crafter of flowers .... too good not to take part!!!! You all know how much I love my flowers!!
That's it from me apart from to say thanks for all your lovely messages about my sore tooth. It is still no better really which makes me wonder if I need different antibiotics ... will wait till they open tomorrow and give them a ring.
See you tomorrow for Inspirational Card Sketches - you might want to bring a pair of sunglasses ..... you have been warned, lol.
Enjoy the rest of your Bank Holiday!
