Last night I shared a card that I had made for my Niece's 21st birthday - well now I can share the other card I made for her ... ...
Her boyfriend got down on one knee and proposed to her last night . .. ... and yippee .. .. .. she said "YES" - amongst the hugs, kisses and squeals of excitement. They are such a lovely couple and are just "made for each other".
So the week has been very busy. 21st birthday cards and engagement cards for various members of the family to give along with mother's day cards. All ones I couldn't share because of spoiling surprises.
It has been nice to get some good news this week as we have had some bad news too. My youngest son has been made redundant this week after 4 years and the sale of my late Mother-in-Law's house has fell through at the last minute and we are back to square one.
So there you go, things do "come in threes" but not necessarily all bad ones. We have some good news worth celebrating and the memories of a wonderful evening.
Here is my engagement card: To make this card I used:
Image and sentiment from the same collection - Woodware (Let's Celebrate)
Backing Paper - Doodle Mentals Add on No. 1 from Funky Fairy
Image coloured with ProMarker Pens
Embellishments - Crafty Notions Rainbow Drops attached with gem-tac glue
The Funky Fairy download is available free of charge.
I still have some card commitments for other people but I am hoping to get a couple of challenges done too.
I love doing the challenges as it makes you think differently and sometimes they take you out of your comfort zone and force you to use a technique that you don't think you are particularly good at. For me it is "doodling" - but now I have no choice. If I am going to do the Penny Black Challenge
then I must "face my demon!!!".
Happy Mothering Sunday to every Mummy everywhere. I hope you have a lovely day.
Lots of love
