Thank you

I am overwhelmed and in awe of the comments and emails I've had regarding my post 'A Card For Sophie'. Crafter's really are the best and when the chips are down are ready to step in and help. Thank you to everyone that took the time to contact me ... I've already received one card...thank you Susan :-D If anyone missed that post and would like to read about Sophie and send her a card please click on the top button on the left.

It's my BIL's birthday tomorrow and managed to make him a card at the weekend. All going well I'll get it posted today and he'll get it in time ... not like me at all lol. 

Anywho, here it is...

When I'm struggling for ideas there are a few blogs I head to and one of them is Jeanie's aka 
The Spotted Chick as she has fabulicious layouts which is where I found this one and tweaked it slightly.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to be a bit more careful not to go outside the lines...sorry Lily!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafty Sentiments - Spots or Stripes
LEJ Designs - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Creative Belli - Animals
Penny's Paper-Crafty - Happy Birthday
Whimsy Stamps Challenge - Spots and Dots

Glancing to the right I see there aren't a lot of days left to the wedding and my time has been drastically cut as hubby has booked a holiday for the two of us for next Wednesday for 9 days. I'm wondering if he's somehow got the dates mixed up and thinks the wedding isn't till NEXT month!!! I'll admit I almost imploded on Sunday thinking of all the things I have to do...mainly the rest of the favours (yes I'm still working them though thanks to Elaine got a lot more done yesterday) and the Order of Service. I'm wondering if I can accidentally forget to do the OOS? Do you think anyone would really want one? After all if it's a souvenir the guests are after they've got the place card and the favour. My family arrive the day after we get home so you can see why I'm going to have to be uber organised before next Wednesday. I hope I'll have time to make a couple of cards to leave you with but if you don't hear from me for a while you know I failed miserably lol.

Since time is precious I'll skedaddle and get on with finishing the favours. I promise I'll stop wittering on about them once they're done lol.

Catch ya later x

Super cute card Kerry. The holiday will do you good so relax and enjoy it!!

Julie said...

Goodness Kerry, when do you find time to sleep ! I think it's much better not to provide an order of service, it's like giving someone your shopping list for their present lol! Much better if everything's a surprise;)
Loving your card, I've not visited Jeannie for a while, must go and grab me some inspiration!.x
