A groovy kinda love


Today was another awesome Saturday. It was my good friend Meg's farewell lunch, and all of us "hello girls" (this is what we call ourselves) had lots of fun eating way too much and chatting away on various different subjects. The majority of this group of friends are alot older than me but we all get on so well and I absolutely love catching up with them every few months, we have all worked together at Energy Australia at some stage. Everyone signed the book I made for Meg and and we took some great photos today that I will add to the book, I will eventually post this to Meg. A funny thing that happened today was my friends nearly fainted as I actually wore a skirt, I am normally quite the tomboy and they were absolutely shocked to see me in a skirt.

After coming home I realized just how blessed I am and how days like this make up for all the bad days. In the mood I have been in the whole day I think that its appropriate that I made a "love" themed card. Using Microsoft Office I printed the white text on a yellow and red background. I then punched out the hearts in two different sizes and added the Scrapmatts chipboard. Some of the hearts have been added to the card using dimensional foam to add some dimension to the card.  I have to admit I am really happy with this card, I think its modern and will be appropriate for any young or young at heart funky couple getting married. Btw I didnt photograph this card in my bathroom, according to my husband the background looks like tiles in a bathroom.

The Challenges I have included-
CAS-ual Fridays (their first ever challenge)-Texting skills
PDCC-Challenge #80
Wags 'n Whiskers Stamps-Die or a punch


Anyway, wishing all the mothers a very Happy Mother's Day, hope its a lovely day for all you all. I am looking forward to spending the day with my mum.
