Have a Happy Day Megan. . . . . .

Good morning my lovely paddlers. Hope we're all bright eyed and bushy tailed and if you're not, I'll send Patricia round to see you. . . . . . not in a menacing way (although I would behave myself if she turns up) but because 1. She always dispenses hugs to those in need  2. She is speedy so will get to you quickly   3. Her super tablet will cheer you up (and your dentist lol !!!)

Well Annie and everyone, I will keep you in suspenders no longer. You may have noticed, depending on how you view blogs, that I have a new badge on my sidebar. I'm chuffed to have been invited to join the House of Cards DT on their Classic and Elegant team. I hope that you will have a look at their blog and enter the challenges. There are 4 categories that cover the main genres so why not give them a bash. The winners are picked by the DT rather than at random so you know that your entry will have been thoughtfully considered.
My first DT post is due in a couple of weeks so I will give you the heads up.

Anyhoo, today's card I have made for a friend's daughter who is 10 this week. She loves anything girlie and pinks, lilacs and purple so I thought I would play with the shaving foam again.
The card is A5 in size, white card base topped with slightly smaller raspberry pink card layer. I then used a smaller piece of white card for the shaving foamed layer.
Onto the foam, I sprayed Apple Blossom Luminarte Radiant Rain and dripped Dusty Concord Distress Ink Re-inker, made swirly patterns then popped the sheet of card onto it as per the usual technique.
When the card was dry, I cut one of the SB Les Papillions 2 at a jaunty angle from the top left hand side.

I then cut the same butterfly from purple PMD card. I also cut Megan's name and one of the SB Fancy Framed Tags One.
I wrapped pink organza and white satin ribbon around the patterned card and topped with a triple pink organza bow. I then added the sentiment which was stamped and heat embossed and added to the tag.

I then foam padded this to the base card and stuck the purple butterfly into the butterfly aperture.
Bit of bling added and that was that. Megan likes to craft so she's getting a crafty goody bag from us as a pressie. I hope she likes her card and that you do too.

Offski now but hope you all have a splendid day, whatever you are up to and if there's any lap blankets going begging Jackie, I know a willing lap lol ! And to those of you with holidaying Mojo's, get em back asap. . . . . . . your bloggers need you!!!!!!!
