Shirley's Prize

Bit late in posting this! But as I've said down below, that's down below in the post before this one, not down below in the cellar or anything..cos we haven't got a cellar!..Anyway, my Internet connection had partying gremlins chewing on the cables and I couldn't get on. It really gives me the hebegebe's when that happens! I go all glassy eyed..and that's without my reading glasses.
This is Shirley's Card and the crafty-bits I sent her after she won My Blog Candy bits and pieces prize last weekend!
I cut a 12x12 lilac card down so it had a little extra flap inside to hold the stamped images.
I used a mixture of Pink Petticoat papers and images in the same shades and coloured them with my (permanent) Promakers. I even used one to colour the brad. It was already red, but I wanted to make it match the cherries. Now, the font, you may already have but if not, it's called akaFrivoity and is available as a free download from 'Fonts for free'. (Or just Google the name, and other sites will pop up) Have a look, you may find other fonts you like! I put this through WordArt on your computer, so it's a little thicker and has a colour infill edged in black, but it still writes really nice in just plain old Word.

Ah, now before I go, I'd love to welcome three new followers! We really do have enough to have a party now, don't you think! Big (((Wave))) to...
