Another Pretty In Pink Birthday!!

Evening all,

Sorry it's such a late one from me tonight, I wanted to post this earlier today but I didn't get in from work until late and then had to rush out to umpire 2 games of netball.  Ooooo it was cold tonight!!

Anyway, onto my card and this one was a commissioned card for one of our friends to give to his daughter Cleo on her 2nd birthday.  The requirements were pink with a cat on it somewhere!!  And here's what I made...

I'm so sorry the piccies are rubbish, I made the card on Saturday and by the time I'd finished it, it was dark outside and our friend was round to collect it!!  But nevermind, you get the idea right?!  Roll on summer ay!!  Is it me or has this winter been never ending?  Must be my age, lol!!

On a much brighter note (than the weather!) I was really, really chuffed to find out I'd made Top 5 at Cupcake Craft Challenges this week with this card - wahoooooo!!  How cool is that!!

It certainly made my day!!

Ok, time for beddie byes I think,
See you all soon,
Much love,

Hi Cazza, saw your Top 5 award on the Cupcake Craft blog - well done!! I'm not surprised when you make cards as beautiful as this! That image just couldn't be more perfect for a two year old! I want to give the little girl and the cat a big cuddle as they're both so loveable! xx
