VERY Last Minute Annie!

You all know by now that I've been pretty late with birthdays recently but I think this one takes the cake! It was my friend Jean's birthday May 16 and although I was in Vancouver at the time I did have the intention of making her card and getting Nicole to mail it closer to the day. Well, you'll know that didn't happen and since I've been home I've been playing catch up KWIM. We finally had a lunch date for Thursday just past and there was NO WAY I was arriving without Jean's card so once I dropped the dogs off at doggy daycare I came home and set to work. Yup, you read right...I made it 2 hours before we were due to meet!!! I know Jean will be reading this and I am hanging my head in shame but thankfully she knows what I'm like (though she did say when I gave it to her that when she'd been reading my blog and was seeing cards for OTHER's being made she wondered if she'd EVER get one lol) and is very forgiving and I do pay her handsomely to be my friend...ok that last one isn't true lol.

So having only 2 hours (that's quick for me!) this is what I came up with...

Balloon Ruby hadn't seen ink in ages so she got inked and coloured up.

It's amazing what you see when you PS how bad your colouring is! This isn't one of my finest but as I am shaming myself I thought I might as well show you. Don't even get me started with the balloon!

THIS I'm proud of...look at that sewing! I cut a thin piece of card and zigzagged over it and it turned out pretty darn good IMHO!

It had been a good few months since we'd met up so we had a lot of catching up to do. We have a great friendship where we just pick up where we left off which I think are the best friendships to have :-D

My followers are creeping up and I am so delighted and you think we can make it to 300??? Just kidding lol.

Have a great weekend

Catch ya later x
