Forever Friends Birthday Wishes

Good afternoon to you all
After yesterday's very interesting turn, today I am pleased to say is much quieter as Matt has taken himself and his car to a fishing match.  You see yesterday we set off for the weekly shop, with the intention of some new shoes and a new handbag for moi.  However after only two stops, it was decided to take the very noisy car (sounded like a piece of metal was moving under the car) to our local exhaust repair place.  Only to find out that not only was it one section, but two..........and the part was not in and needed ordering :(.  So Matt as you see has taken his noisy vehicle to fishing with him, hoping that the poorly sections don't actually fall of.  For those of you know where I am, Matt has driven to Skegness area for his match.......so if you are on a day out and spot him, just wave :)

So moving on, I would like to share with you a card, made for Mike's fiancĂ©e Hannah.  "Bear" in mind that she adores purple and you will sure get the idea.  So I just had to go with a shopping theme along with a monochromatic purple.

So here is what I created for her.


This is a twisted easel card, with lots and lots of circles, scallop edges and hearts.  The cute forever friends image is just perfect for her. The base colour is some purple card stock textured from Grimsby Crafts, (P.S. their web site will be open soon)  The papers are from the Papermania Capsule Mono Collection as is the ribbon.  The pearls on this one are from the Hobby House and both sentiments are MSE. Flowers from Wild Orchid.

I would like to say hello to my new followers and a great big thank you to all those wonderful visitors that leave such inspirational comments, life would not be the same in blog land with out you all.

I would like to mention a new monthly challenge - pop over here to take a peek.

I am going to enter this creation into the following challenges

well must pop and feed the pup and also put our food in as the fisherman will return shortly

hope you had a great weekend
Hugs
Kate
