Massive Congratulations!

Hi all,

How was your weekend?

I made a card last week for my Dad as he recently had a well earned promotion so I made him a card to send from my Mum and I.

He loved it! As I have said before, I feel a little uneasy when making cards for men and usually struggle for ideas, but I was quite pleased with how this card turned out.


6x6 scalloped card blank.
Papers were from Summer time designs.
Sentiment downloaded and recoloured from Create with TLC
Star punch, stars made with snippets.

I would like to enter this card into Di's Crafty Snippet Challenge

Thanks for looking,

Laura xx

PS: I would just like to say a massive thank you to everybody that commented on my last post, it means a lot to have such kind comments from you all! Thanks again.
