Hi Blogger friend`s I went out for nearly all day yesterday ,went to Newbury to see my stepson though it was great to get out of Kent it wore me out . I made 5 cards on Tuesday I was on a roll not finishing till late and I only stopped because we was going out for the day Wednesday but my head was still churning over Ideas  so didn`t get much  sleep .

My inspiration for this card was from the talented Jo Channon she showed a card like this on C & C when she did a pick of the week I got some of the things she had used but got the rest in and tried it I have never done anything like this before but was really proud the way it came out ,My sister fell in love with it and asked could she have for a birthday she had coming up on Thursday she collected it Wednesday It was one of my sisters stamps she had which I had borrowed for this challenge, she has now asked me to show her how i did it She has also borrowed some of my dies  .I have F.B Jo and she like my interpretation on her card
