Cute Card Thursday # 98 - Spots and Dots.....


Hi there folks!

I'm fairly sure my lovely friend Martine will have received this card I made for her to cheer her up after she lost her dog recently. It feels so nice to be able to make a card for someone who is feeling a bit down doesn't it? It always cheers you up when something handmade drops through the letterbox and you know a friend has you in their thoughts.

I'm entering the card into this week's Cute Card Thursday Challenge where the theme is spots and dots........ the MME papers are spotty and this super cute LOTV image has the little girl wearing a hat covered in dots, will that do? I've added a pretty rose which I got from Tab's brilliant online store and some Prima Hydrangeas. The leaves were cut from a MS punch, the rub on sentiment is Melissa Frances and the other is Kay&Co and finally the lace came from my local market.

Well I hope you enjoy your day today..... mine will be full of paperwork at the office ;o( I'd love a couple of weeks off just to sit and make cards as my head is buzzing with ideas but you watch, when I do finally get some time off I bet my mojo will be hiding again, lol!

Thanks for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
