Card for a friend.......


Good morning!

This is my last post now for a few days as we head of later for our short break in sunny Wales....... or not so sunny if we are to believe the weekend forcast which has given severe flood warnings, lol! Ah well, we'll just have to batten down the hatches if it all gets too bad..... it's still a break from the normal routine whatever happens!

Just wanted to show you this card I made at the weekend for my lovely matey Jo...... we've done an image swap with the stash we bought at the NEC. The kettle and teacup used on the card are from a set I picked up at the NEC by Pink Cat Studio.... just thought it would be nice to have something like this as a change from cutie images. The papers are Basic Grey Nook and Pantry and I added some faux stitching with a gel pen...... a bit wonky, lol!

Well I'll probably manage a bit of blog hopping before we go and then I will definitely look forward to playing catch up next week. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
