One of the bestest things about this hobby...... when the card you make is for someone that you care about!
Hi and thank you for popping in today, hope your weekend is going well. After a lay-in this morning, I went and did the weekly food shop with Megan and then decided to have a slightly more relaxing afternoon and make cards for a couple of birthdays that are coming soon.
The first of these is the card I am sharing today, which is for my very good friend, who also happens to be my boss! She is a bit of a mad cat lady,  so this super sweet LOTV image was a no-brainer!, I went for quite subtle colours to suit the papers, and have used the trusty promarkers to colour. The papers came from a stack of prettiness that my Mum found in The Works, the lace is also from there. The dies I've used here are a spellbinders lacy circle and a cuttlebug tag. The flower came from a dovecraft pack, the pearls and twine are from stash
To get my mojo up and running, I used this sketch from this weeks Passion for Promarkers challenge
