... we've had a really fun weekend. It's been cold, crisp and bright - just the way I like it in the winter. We've had a couple of hard frosts and it's great going out when it's like this. Today, I took Kathryn to her friends birthday party at the local tenpin bowling alley - they had a fun time. Kathryn was really pleased as she won both her games!! Mum and I spent a happy couple of hours window shopping in the new John Lewis at Home store. I saw so much that I'd like to get, but was very good - all I got was a tea!!! Anyway, enough of that - you're here for cards, so without further ado - my card.
Susan from Simplicity has a wonderful challenge for the One Layer Wednesday this week - she would like us to make a card using only red and pink. For me this one was quite easy - the idea came quickly, but it took a while to put together.
I started off with a white textured square card 13.5 cm × 13.5 cm (5¼" square). I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to position the square frame and the heart inside. Then I masked off the square and stamped in pale pink some music and finished off with this simple sentiment. I think I'm giving this to my darling daughter - just because I love her!!

Tomorrow looks like being busy. Mum has to go to hospital for her warfarin blood test and after that I've got craft class, which is always a pleasure. Hopefully, I'll have something to share with you tomorrow too! See you soon.
Edited: To add that sometimes I hit the wrong button - this was supposed to go live tomorrow morning:)
