The one for my Friend.......

Oh my Goodness, its Friday! Where did that week pleased I've still got another week off!!

Well yesterday was a day of mixed emotions, I'd had my mum over and we had a lovely time crafting together, but in the morning I went to Megans school with her to collect the results from a GCSE history exam that she sat in May. The poor old bird was so disappointed with herself as she had got a "D" grade - now bearing in mind, that she is only 14 so she sat this paper two years ahead of schedule and she wont actually be sitting her actual GCSE's for another two years yet, I think she has done incredibly well and both the hubby and I, and our family, are all very proud of her!

Anyway, onto todays card and this is the card that I had made for the August Friendship Swap on Docrafts.

This adorable image is from Di's designs and is coloured with promarkers, the paper is from a me to you stack, the doily is from The Pretty Little Ribbon shop, the flowers area Joycraft die and the gingham ribbon and the blingy gems are from a local haberdashery.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
