Hanglar Girl.........

Good morning Peeps!
Sorry for not being around much recently...... I seem to have had so much on! Including a wonderful trip to the NEC but more of that in a bit!
This is the card I made for my lovely friend Martine who celebrated her birthday on Saturday. I used a pretty Hanglar image and added some gorgeous roses which I got from Tab's store. The papers are from the new Basic Grey range and the brown felt borders are from my local craft store.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
Create4Fun - Brown, Pink and Cream
Squigglefly - Flower Power
Ooh La La - a button, a bow and some bling
Pink Elephant - pastels

So I had a fantastic day at the NEC and was lucky enough to meet up with loads of blogging buddies.......waving!! I spent waaaaaaay too much money, managed to part with a hundred quid with in 5 minutes of arriving thanks to the Magnolia stand, lol! At least the funds were available as a result of my big birthday ;o) We all met up at lunchtome and had a good old chinwag and a giggle and it felt so good to be able to chat about cards and blogging without getting tutted at like you do when the other half is around!! Roll on November girlies, I'm saving already! I'll post some piccies later this week when I get organised...... thanks for listening to me waffle on!!

Have a lovely day ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
