Forever Friends for Mum's Birthday

It was John's Mum's birthday yesterday (Tuesday) and it was a bit of a rush to get her card done. as I just couldn't think of what to do, until I did the challenge card down below, and thought... I'll do that, or something similar but bigger, with more glitter and ribbon, and yes...the glitter still hadn't quite dried by the time we took it over to her. I do love to spread my crafty stuff about!(John's shirts, his mum's bare feet...the cat..the man who came to read the gas meter...) First I covered a large square scalloped piece of card with pearlised paper... but then changed my mind and covered that with some Pink Petticoat large swirling hearts in black and pink, which you can't actually see as I covered that with more scalloped squares, added the flowers and then the little pink heart buttons. I copied the way the ribbon is attached to the card from a box of chocolates my mum had for her birthday, and stuck the 'bow' on with silicone glue. I then fixed the Scalloped square to another piece of folded card to actually make a card (otherwise it would've fallen over!)
This is a short post (really??) as it's gone one in the morning! So I'll be back later to 'soup it up' a bit, add a couple more pictures and a link to another freebie font..but before I go... drum roll please ...I'd love to say a big (((wave))) welcome to Saskia who most of you know as she not only has a fantastic blog of her own, can be found designing for many others! Please pop over to see all her wonderful makes, you'll never be short of ideas! And last, but not least, I should've (((waved)) to Kathleen days ago, but I missed her, as she's hiding out the back with no picture! (For some reason the font's changed colour on the Followers Gadget and I can't see it!) Sorry Kathleen, but as soon as I find a link to you and your blog I'll put it in here!!
Up Date: As promised I'm back with an update. I Found Kathleen (just call me Clouseau!) Pop over to KathsKards and have a look at Kaths Kards!!
I've just added these two photo's as well. As usual, I only had a tiny bit of pink card left to type the sentiment on, so I first typed it on paper and then stuck the card over that and then ran it through the printer again. The font I used is called Mandingo. I typed it out in WordArt, (on your computer) so that I could fill it in with one colour, pink, and edge it with another, grey. It's a free download, freely available from many downloadable places! You can Google it.. (or if you're feeling lazy just click the google) I'm off now...if I have time I'll pop back Thursday or maybe Friday...but I'm supposed to be tidying my craft room...Ha! (A very dangerous task!) Send in help, if you don't hear from me...and bring food, I'll be hungry! Chocolate bisqwits!!
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon! I mean it! You haven't seen my Craft room lately, it's worse than ever!!
