Friendly Surprise

This is a quick post today, as i'm really busy today, meeting other half for lunch, then taking son to a birthday party and i was supposed to do the hoovering yesterday and made a card instead - how naughty is that !!!

A couple of weeks ago the lovely Jacques asked if we could make a card for a charity 'Send A Smile', but as i live in the UK, i said i would send some to 'Post Pals', so this is where this card is going. I also decided to join in with the Wild Orchid Challenge making Tent Cards for a change and some of the 'Summer' challenges too. The image is hunging by a piece of very thin clear plastic thread - to give the illusion it's actually swinging.

Wild Orchid - where Challenge No: 27 is 'Tent Card'

My Time To Craft - where Challenge No: 148 is 'Bird Watcher'

Hi Sam fantastic card-still loving PB's I see! What a great reason to send a card -post pals brightens so many peoples days x. I am on the mend now thanks but not allowed to drive for another 2 weeks and that's a killer, especially as we are on school holidays at moment!!!

Fabulous card Sam. Lovely summery colours and I love the shape and the cut out section. Did you know your card would also be perfect for the Penny Black @ Allsorts challenge this month. There are lots of prizes up for grabs.

Your card is SO cute! Thanks for joining us at WOC! Unfortunately in order to qualify for the drawing you are only allowed to combine the entry with two other challenges. We would sure hate for you to miss out on any opportunities to win the prize so welcome back in our new challenge!
