WOW!!! Its been so long since I have done a parchment card!

After all the stress & hastle we have had the last week or so, I have got some good news to share, I have been asked to join the DT over on 'Moving Along With The Times' I am sooooooooo excited to be joining them...thanks girls...they have a new challenge every Thurday, so please pop along & join in the fun.

I really did have fun making this card, I did most of it whilst sitting in the sunshine last week on holiday, I have made it for a friend who's birthday I forgot, I know she reads my blog so won't tell you her name. But as she is a good friend, & I can't believe I forgot her birthday I thought I would make her a special card, I haven't been able to do any parchment for ages, need the warmer weather to hold the tools properly....but I managed & I'm quite happy with it...hope she likes it xx
I have to say I think my hubby got a bit carried away with taking the photos lol he took about 20 but I picked my favourite 2 lol x




The one thing I hate about parchment, is not knowing what colour card to put it on....I'm still not sure about the pale blue....so decided to brighten it up a bit with some purty butterflies

hope your all having a fab sunday....off to pack some more boxes then watch Jenson Button kick ass lol..hugs xx
