- CAS-ual Fridays - CFC37 - where we have a sketch layout
- Play Date Cafe Challenge - PDCC116 - with super rich colours
I followed the sketch quite faithfully, starting off by stamping a background using the large doily set from Waltzingmouse, (inspiration from my Blog Buddy Pauline) which I then embossed. I stamped the sentiment onto plain white card and used my square nesties to cut it out. I threaded some fine navy ribbon (recycled) through the holes in the beaded square. I made a pennant and home made brad and attached it to the card with dimensional tape.

I've got a busy morning today - I'm taking Kathryn into town as she wants to visit Argos for a new doll and after that I'm off to donate blood at one of the local schools. I used to be a regular donor, but when I moved to Wales I sort of fell off the radar! Anyway, I started back again in February last year and was due to go again in October, but couldn't because I'd had various vaccinations before going to India. But I'm allowed to go again - so this morning I'll be parting with "an armful" of O Neg!! Jonathan is off for a photo shoot in the morning, making up for lost time!! That's all for now. See you later.
