One Challenge ... Two Thank You's

Well it's a cold and foggy day here ... and I've been busy sorting a project for tonights' Thursday Club ... my group love to make notebooks with diaries in ... well I make them ... they assemble ... so there are 20 ready to go ... with embellishments (phew!) ... But I still had time to do a card for this weeks' challenge at CR84FN ... this is the lovely photo ...



Beautiful ... and yes it makes me think of Valentines ... and love ... and trying to get ahead I chose to make a card for my Husband's birthday which is in a couple of weeks ...


Ok ... so no hearts and flowers ... but 2 days later is Valentine's ... maybe then ... 
and would you believe he walked in when I was making this and said "Wow! That's nice" ... he never notices what I am making!!??** 


and in case you don't know ... the little calendar is a freebie from Crafty Secrets ... love these!

 I want to say a big Thank You to my colleagues Kirsty and Linda .. for my "happy mail" ... The girls all made cards for my birthday and posted them ... then mailed them to me with gifts! Aren't I a lucky girl? Take a peek ...

From Kirsty 
Gorgeous card ... journal, pretty little note pads and a matching adorable pen ...
Thank you Kirsty

From Linda
Another stunning card and some candy ... oooh I can't wait to try this!
Thank you Linda
These cards are so precious IRL ...
Now I'm off to pack up my things for tonight ... have yourselves a wonderful day/evening
Till soon

Stunning card Ros, somehow reminds me of those delicious chocolate boxes, or is that just wishful thinking ;-)
Have fun with all your birthday goodies, they're well deserved! Ira x

Stella said...

Ros I already knew you're multi talented and this masculine birthday card; sigh.... Ian is a lucky man ( and not only because of this card :)!!!)
I really have to get myself that rosette die ( I think it's a die) This rosette is gorgeous. It's a perfect take on the colors of the challenge. And that tiny border of lace is the perfect feminine touch :)
Have a lovely evening with your group!

Beautiful card ! I love rosettes(not sure I spell that right) so much. Thanks for the link to the freebie it's really nice. And thanks so much for your sweet comment on my blog. I've been very busy at work and long hours commuting because of road constructions so not been able to craft at all. But I'm fine thanks so much. I'll try to catch up during the weekend.
