Sending Love

Hey Peeps and Hello new followers.

I started this post 3 days ago but things kept getting in the way, finally done tho. Phew!

This card is one I made for the cherubs to give their Gran on Mothers day but it didn't go because Hubs let them buy cards. However she's now in hospital with pneumonia and with the Chemo having hammered her already isn't too great (you may remember she has Myloma) so it has new life as a get well/thinking of you card as the kids can't visit.

The image is Bugaboo - Ava and Deacon Love word. Coloured with Promarkers. Aren't they sweet?

Paper, buttons and twine excavated from Stash and sentiment was computer generated.

Text it.

This is another of those filed away images finally making it on to a card.
He's a Mo Manning - Paul Texting
I didn't have that many Promarkers when he was coloured but I rather like the washed out denims that resulted.

Turning 10

This week was the 10th Birthday of my super friend Yvonne's daughter.
Do you remember how important getting into double figures was?

She got a new mobile which has caused a bit of techno envy in this house. 
My daughter has an old hand me down phone and has been promised a decent one for going to High School a year in July but now her wee pal has a good phone this isn't acceptable. 
I may bring it forward to Christmas but not sooner. Just don't tell her ;-)

Anyway onto the card.

The image is Bugaboo-Scene it - Ava Deacon Birthday.
It's a lovely fun image and fits my 2 cherubs nicely.
Coloured with Promarkers.

I couldn't get a decent pic of the Bling but trust me that crusty looking stuff is really pretty and sparkly and the little dew drop pearls are lovely.

Love to you all

10,000+ Candy

Having realised that my little Bloggy has had over 10,000 hits I decided to have some Candy to celebrate.

Prima Almanac 6x6 paper pad, matching wooden buttons and 2 rolls of ribbon.
If I double my followers I'll add something else.

You don't have to become a follower tho I'd love it if you do.
 I would ask you to spread the word on your Blog and leave me a comment and I'll randomly draw a winner on the 1st of March.

Thanks and Good Luck
