To my friend

Morning Bloggers!

I hope you're all feeling better than I am. I am still suffering with my cold & cough. The cough is the worst, but hey ho a rainy day today so I may stay indoors all day or I may need to run over to Asda/Tesco/Sainsburys as there's nothing in my house! :(

I have a new SWALKcard to share with you today - I have made this using the new Hunkdory SWALK kit, I have used the flower embossed card stock, 1 of the peony shaped cards, a foiled borders & sentiments. I have secret to share about the borders - I'll tell you nearer the end of my post! BUT only if you promise not to tell anyone??

Onto my peony card blank I have matted some of the pink flower embossed card.My gorgeous SWALK image has been colored with Spectrum Noir pens. I cut the white border lace with a Magnolia Doo Hickey die, & the flowers are from my stash (with no idea where they orginated from, sorry), jewels are also from my stash & round the edge of th image I have done a dot dash border with a Letraset fineliner. I've decorated the inside with the same layout, & the foiled greeting inside says "Happy Birtday".

I'm enterng this card into the following challenges:
Charisma Cardz Challenges - Pink & Girly
Papertake Weekly - Cute, Cute, Cute

Now onto my secret, the foiled border I have used on the front & inside are actually the waste between the ribbon borders on the sheet, but I don't actually think they look like waste, I think they look too good to throw away - plus I needed a very thin one to fit on my white lace so this worked out well. But Sssshhh don't tell anyone LOL!!

Well I may see you all laters - I may decided to go shopping or I may just climb back into bed & watch some DVD's - with this weather I'm thinking Christmas movies & making Christmas Cards?!?!?! See you soon x x x x
