Happy Birthday and a tag swap

Hello there! How are you? I'm good! My little Lucy has her first mouth ulcer so she's not so happy but its not stopping her from doing all she wants so thats good. I'm off to the hospital with mum and dad today - we're getting the results of his MRI scan - fingers crossed the dementia isn't too developed yet. My dad keeps joking that they'll finally discover he has no brain ..... bless him!

I want to say a very Happy Birthday to mags - I sent her a card earlier in the week - I'm hoping she has got it - here it is:



The papers are from LOTV, the banner die is from La la land crafts, the flowers and lacy edger are from crafty cutter dies by Crafty Sentiments. The image is from Crafters companion and was coloured in using spectrum noir pens. Hope you liked it Mags and that you have a very happy Birthday.

I'd like to enter this for the following challenges:

As you like it asyoulikeitchallenge- fave 3D textures - flowers of all kinds - especially handmade ones as I think they are very special.
Penny'spennyschallenges: Girl/guy or both
Allsortsallsortschallenge: Ladies day


I'd also like to show you a tag I made for a tag swap on that Craft Place Natter group on Facebook.


I had lots of inky fun making this one - I've not heard from the lady I swapped with so I'm hoping this one reached her!

Big Crafty Hugs to you - March tomorrow all - how did that happen?

Hugs

Rachel xx

  7. Hi Rachel, I hope it all goes well with your Dad, if good wishes would help, you have a huge amount today. Your card and tag are both beautiful. Swaps can be difficult, when I did one last year my swap did not arrive for months, but I got it in the end and it was beautiful. Huge hugs today, Anne xx
