Snuggle Buddy


All the best laid plans since Wednesday night, have not happened as H gained a temperature, runny nose and hacking cough and was therefore unable to go to school on Thursday and Frinday - so he was unable to go and meet Julia Donaldson on Friday and was also unable to go to a party yesterday (as it was a football party and a lot of running around, and that's when he starts coughing), he is fit enough to go back to school today.

I decided to have another play at making a different shape - this time i was a little dictated too, as i had a couple of scraps of this paper left and they were just bigger enough for the smaller circles - the paper is Basic Grey - Bittersweet, this is the first outing out for the Memory Box - Twirled Heart Border (thought i would have used it lots before now, but i'm not as happy with it, as i thought i would be), Ribbon is from 'The Ribbon Girls', Gems are Papermania and Lace is from Castleford Market.

Sam, I love these papers, have a few sheets left and hate to use them. Your card is A-dorable! All those scalloped circles make a great layout. The little bear couple are so sweet.
