Fabulous Day

I've had the greatest day helping my bestest and oldest (as in how long I've known her, not how old she is!!) friend celebrate her birthday!  Firstly it was great because I had the day off work, but the bonus was that we went to Sandown for a craft fair there!  Then back to Lesley's for an afternoon of crafting and playing with all her lovely stash in her super duper craft room.  I even inked up her new Tilda ( that  I had just given her for her birthday!)  I then finished making the card below which has turned out to my liking - a good day indeed!!

 I haven't  used this Miss Anya before - from the Dressy set and I do love her, she is soooo cute!! Coloured with Promarkers and layered up using K & Co paper, some scraps and the background sheet which is from one of the new colour sets just out from Paper Mania - bought at Sandown!  Sentiment stamp is from   Autumn Leaves.
I've used the sketch  (which I've rotated) from this week's Sketch Saturday, so I've got to get this in tonight!! I also had this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers  in mind which allowed us to use any colours but have a girl theme.
What a great day and there's still two more days of the weekend to go!!!

Having watched this work of art in progress - I can attest to its loveliness and now that it is finished - it is superb! I wanted to enter this challenge too but had to cook dinner for hubby and then open the rest of my pressies so I didn't get around to it. I did have an absolutely fantastic day with you Julie. Thank you for taking me to the fair, for crafting with me this afternoon, for all of the lovely gifts you gave me and for being the kind of friend whose very presence in my life - enhances it one hundred fold! Loadsa love, Lesley

Hi Julie

What a fantastic card you have made. I love it. Such gorgeous colours and so many beautiful details.

You also have a great friend in Lesley - what a lovely comment she has left for you.

I am pleased you both had a lovely day (except for the bit where Lesley had to do the cooking .. .. doesn't sound fair on her birthday - especially when she hadn't finished opening her presents LOL!!).

Have a good weekend.

Love Jules xx
