My 2nd of the day!!

I have had a lovely day today, one of my special friends came over ( Gill from Fair trade designs!!), with a fabulous get well gift!!
I do love any gift but this was more special as she had made it all herself.

In she came with a basket of chocolate cupcakes, all wrapped and with a gorgeous handmade tag!!
Marvelous and can't wait to tuck in after tea...Enchiladas tonight yum!!

So on to my next card...

Sometimes you see an image and you 'just have to have it!'....well this is that one for me....I don't know what it is but I LOVE her!!!

I have coloured the image with copics, the papers I have used are basic grey (lemonade), the card stock is stampin up! everything else is from Melbics!!( i will tell you more about that later!!)

So I am entering a few challenges with this one....

paper cutz  - Anything goes
a spoonfull of sugar - Recycle (I have used recycled kraft card)
the crafty pad - Use a charm

Now then I mentioned Melbics earlier. This is our local garden centre but it has a HUGE craft section. Now as I have been sssoooo good this week and done as I was told, Sam has said she will take me there for breakfast on Saturday so I am very excited (God it's amazing what excites you when you have only seen 4 walls for the last 2 weeks lol!!). The only down side is that I will be pushed around in a wheelchair as I am still not able to walk tooo far!! But I guess it's worth it lol!!

Thanks for looking as speak soon xx
