For Joanne ...

One of my ladies from Thursday Club is celebrating her birthday this weekend ... Now Joanne is not a girlie girl ... Flowers and lace would not suit her at all! So I needed to come up with a card that I thought would be acceptable and pondered on the colours to use ... Then I saw the new challenge over at the Play Date Cafe   with this lovely picture and adorable colours ....



(licking my lips here!...) So I thought I would go with these colours and hopefully she will like it ( I did all her invitations and she was so happy with them) ...


A mixture of digital papers have been used here Spontaneous Delights (courtesy of Shabby Princess) and the CS has been printed using the ledger paper from Shimelle's Spring basics ... 



It's the first time I've tried one of these rosettes and silly me adhered it the wrong way round ... the pinked edge should be showing! Lol
Congrats to Andrea Ewen on making a Private Blend Designer over at PDC ... her creations are lovely.

Till soon
Keep safe

Ros

Just fabulous darling! :)

I didn't even notice you did it backwards until you said so. I love those rosettes too. I made a few last year. Making me want to make them again. :)

Hi Ros,

Thanks for your sweet comment.
And yes: I bought my easel at IKEA. It's one of the largest IKEA stores all over Europe and it's right here in Groningen. I am a lucky girl :)

I saw in your profile that you are living in Liverpool.... my husband is a huge fan of Liverpool (football.....)We're making plans to see them play at Anfield Road in 2011. As far as I know they are building a new stadium and my husband is having this big wish to see them play before they leave Anfield Road.

Thanks for your sweet comment... I appreciate it so much......
