Descent !


I think my cough is hopefully starting to get better - as i've been hacking for the last 3 nights !!! Whisper's paw is getting better, let's hope it stays like that this time and this afternoon i've cleared out the conservatory in readiness for my our kitchen to be delivered on Friday - it's not being installed until the 11th April, then the fun will start !!!

For todays card i was nearly stumped as there was a colour challenge over at Oldie But A Goodie - Pink / Blue and Brown, until i remembered this little cutie of a stamp, that i must have had for at least 2 years.  I also needed to make a card for my friend Sandra, who set the Challenge on Docrafts this week - Flowers, Ribbon and Gems, i've also turned it into a Mothers Day card to give me a head start on next years SOS Mothers Day cards (that i send off in January).

Right on to the Card and Challenges :

Oldie But A Goodie - where Challenge No: 15 is 'Pink/ Blue and Brown'
