Well its good Friday today and I'm taking the children to Blackpool Zoo - we have annual passes so can go whenever we like and today seems like a good kind of zoo day!!!
Before I go I really want to share this card with you that I've made for my friend Sue's birthday - Sue was my boss when I was a teacher but now she's retired and well I'm just mum! We meet every week to run together - and we both love gardening and cats - I really hope she'll like the card.
To make this card I've used a stamp from crafterscompanion which I've coloured using promarkers. I've diecut the image using a spellbinders die but also used my favourite tool (my big shot) to cut out the sentiment backing (memory box die) and the butterfly (marianne Creatable die). The papers were from this months quick cards and the ribbon and pins from my stash - the sentiment I've used is a a LOTV sentiment and I've added gems and flowers too plus some rose bouquets from the bargain bookshop! The card blank I used was a papermania A5 tent fold card.
I hope you like this card as much as I do. I'd like to enter it into the following challenges:
Crafters Companion: 4 legged friends
Simon says stamp: use your favourite tool (big shot)
Divas by design - anything goes
DYSU#66 Friendly Critters

I think I'd better get dressed now and take the children to the zoo - have a fun day!
