Birthday Card For a Friend

Hello All

The weather in the UK has been dreadful and I truly feel for all the people who have been affected by the heavy rain and the floods - I hope things settle very soon.

It is the birthday of a friend from work today - she's off work at the moment, and we miss her very much - but we all wanted to send her a lovely card and bouquet of flowers - she has received them safe and sound today.  This is the card I made for her:



This is Daisy again from Digistamp Boutique.  I paperpieced her dress and the little heart she is carrying.  The papers are Do Crafts Hanoverian, the embossing folder is Cuttlebug Flower Fantasy, I think I won the roses in some candy a long time ago, and the sentiment is from a pack from Lakeland ages ago.  I used two Memory Box dies for the swirls under the flowers and the sentiment - one is the Macarena Corner and the other is Ivy Tendrils  (first time I've used that one and I cut it in half).

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers - sketch
Digistamp Boutique - July competition
Waste Not Wednesdays
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

That's all for today.  We're hoping to take Andrew to the cinema tomorrow to watch Spiderman - depends on whether Richard is playing cricket, and whether the roads are flooded.  I do believe it has stopped raining now though, so fingers crossed the roads are not flooded but the cricket pitch is too wet to play LOL!

Love, Andrea xx
