Tuesday Taggers # 8 - Friends and Sentiments.....


























Good morning peeps!

Firstly can I just apologise for the bad behaviour of my naughty blog over the weekend - it keeps displaying that horrible 'Operation Abort' message and I have no idea why!! Well hopefully the start of a new week will wash away any problems, here's hoping anyway!

My card is an entry for the Tuesday Taggers Challenge and the brief is........

For this weeks theme we would like you to make something for your best friend - whoever this may be, and include a sentiment if at all possible. Dont forget you can make whatever you fancy be it an atc, inchy, tag or card - whatever shape your MoJo is most stimulated by!

There's a lovely prize on offer kindly donated by Lyn at The Craft Emporium, one of my fave places to shop!

I made the card for my lovely blogging pal Chris - I promised her some Ketto images ages ago and then forgot to send them....... oooops! Still better late tham never heh, lol! I used a gorgeous Alota image kindly sent to me by my bud Katy and the papers and Die Cuts are Cherry Hill by October Afternoon (available at The Craft Emporium). The ribbon, brads and dew drops are from my stash. The lovely sentiment was sent to me by my pal Jo and is part of a Melissa Frances Vintage Transfers set - they're so yum!

Well the sun is shining today and let's hope it sticks around for a bit heh?! I'm planning to show you some piccies later this week of the trailing begonias I'm growing in my garden - they really are so vibrant and beautiful!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today ;o)
