For Alison

Well, I have to say I've had a brilliant day today (shame I have to go back to work tomorrow!).  My buddy Alison came over for some crafting & I think I've encouraged her to spend lots of pennies on a Silhouette Cameo machine, it really is the bees knees as they say - every time I get it out I surprise myself at what it can do, so I will be selling my Cricut as soon as I can get round to sorting out piccies and putting them online.

This card was started while Alison was here, but not finished until after she went, but I was determined to finish it properly (I've even printed out a paper to put inside!), all of the papers and the topper were from my popcorn kids CD and I have to say this was really easy to put together, well when I got the hang of where to put the creases for my stepper, but I was using a pre-scored card.  I used a quickutz die I've had for ages to make the hearts, they are not actually hearts but wings for a butterfly but I thought with the white gel pen they looked really good and finished the card off nicely.  Thanks Alison for nagging me into making a card - I had soo much fun today.

After my fab afternoon, I even continued it into tea and had a ham and pineapple homemade pizza for my tea - it was delicious, however I've eaten waaaay too much and so now will have to stay very still on the sofa for the rest of the evening (that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it).

Hope you like the card & see you soon.
