Forever Friends Surprise


Hi all,

Hope you are well, it's getting so dark now isn't it! I keep waking up thinking my alarm must be wrong but I do have to wake up :-(

I made this card for a lady at work who's Birthday was yesterday. I took a bunch of my cards in to work yesterday and 8 of them sold with 2 requests made! I was over the moon! I have never sold my cards so I was very pleased, it is nice to know people like your work.

I have been working in my job for 4 weeks now and am enjoying every second! I got my first pay cheque yesterday too which I was VERY excited to open!! Unfortunately I won't be able to have a big splurge as a lot of it will be going on...

A MORTGAGE!

My big news that I posted about a few weeks ago was that Sean and I had our offer accepted on a house! It is our first house and is taking quite a long time to go through so I am keeping my fingers crossed right until the end as I know sometimes things can go wrong. We should have about 2-3 weeks left now until it is fully complete :)

Ingredients:
- 6x6 card blank
- FF background papers
- FF image
- Flowers from stash
- Sentiment from FF stickers

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:


Thanks for looking!

Stunning card, and Teddy is just the cutest thing. Good luck on your new job, your new house, and gosh, I can see why you sold some of your cards. This one is adorable. Just joined as your newest follower, and hope you'll visit 'my house' when you get settled and have time. Moving into a new place takes quite a while to get settled round. I'm planning to be back for visits real soon. Great luck in your new life events.
