Morning all!!

Those of you may well have spotted the title, well my lovely mommy sometimes reads my blog through the networked blogs feed on facebook when they go live, so just to make sure she doesn't see this card before it arrives (hopefully today) then she best not peek!!

My mum passed comment on my card folder of facebook that she loves my cards and her exact words were:

In order to get a card there should be something to commemorate or celebrate - do you do a "congratulations on the arrival of your new shed" card? - otherwise I will have to wait till my birthday :(
so I thought I would make her a card .... you know to celebrate the arrival of her new shed!!

Here goes ...

I printed an image directly onto patterned paper, cut around the outline to give me a shed shaped card, inked up the grass at the bottom, added a small flower (this was part of the image) and then changed the sign slightly  into a new one which says Mums shed. I added a screwwdriver head brad, and wrapped some bakers twine around it to look like the sign is hanging by string! 

I know she will see the funny side, and when it arrives it will probably be the talk of all of her facebook friends!!

I got some good news yesterday, my Daddy called me, now some of you know my Daddy lives in Bulgaria with my step mum, anyway in January every year they hike down to the internet cafe and put the cards for the year into Moonpig so that moonpig just deliver in time etc etc. Anyway he has asked me to make his cards for the next year and he will pay me, my step mum absolutely loves my cards and when she visited in October she paid £5 for one for her mum which she had out of my box of cards!! I am so chuffed about this order so just wanted to share.

Also whilst I have your attention, last month I asked the lovely Lisa if she would make me a diary after I spotted a beautiful one she had made for Kerry to take to CHA!, anyway she did just that and posted it to me, needless to say the pictures do not do it any justice, it is beautiful and so special!! just what I need to put in all of these card orders! ... If you haven't seen Lisa's talent then head on over to her blog and become a follower, she makes some amazing things!! Thankyou so much Lisa xxx
