Best Friends

Well that weekend did not go to plan!  I had a fun day at the Berkshire Show on Saturday, though I thought it wasn't as good as it has been in previous years.  Sunday was scheduled for garden tidy up, watching Stamp Addicts on TV and lots of crafting to get ahead.  So it was not helpful to trip over a low piece of trellis and fall - hard- onto the stone patio around the pebble fountain.  In the end, all I get done was the TV watching and some pruning before I fell :(.  Nothing is broken but I am bruised and very sore...

Anyhow back to cards and I made this for my Mum, Friday was the first anniversary of Dad's death.  The ribbon is navy and the DP pale blue, can't seem to get the colours quite right on this one.  The boy and his dog are an image from A Day for Daisies, DP is Memory Box.
I'm entering my card for;
Sweet Sketch Wednesday - sketch
Cute Card Thursday - anything goes

Aly's Sunday - add a bow
Card Cupids - anything goes
Crafty Emma's - embellish me more (ribbon & bow, button, twine, brads)
Papercraft Stars - anything goes
Bearly Mine - button it up

  1. Hi Anne I do hope your feeling a little better this morning. I think as we get a little older it feels as though we fall harder and hurts more. Now you have an excuse just to sit and craft all day. Love your card you made your mum it's very special. I love your colours and your image looks like a postage stamp well done. Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at
    Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.
