Massive Congratulations!




Hi all,

How was your weekend?

I made a card last week for my Dad as he recently had a well earned promotion so I made him a card to send from my Mum and I.

He loved it! As I have said before, I feel a little uneasy when making cards for men and usually struggle for ideas, but I was quite pleased with how this card turned out.

Ingredients-

6x6 scalloped card blank.
Papers were from Summer time designs.
Sentiment downloaded and recoloured from Create with TLC
Star punch, stars made with snippets.

I would like to enter this card into Di's Crafty Snippet Challenge

Thanks for looking,

Laura xx

PS: I would just like to say a massive thank you to everybody that commented on my last post, it means a lot to have such kind comments from you all! Thanks again.
