Vix's Hero Challenge.

It seems ages since my last blog on Friday and I have not had much time since to write a blog but that's because Morgan and her fiance Mark were up  doing some wedding planning and we now have a provisional date of 31 August 2012 for their big day. Morgan is now going up a gear in overall excitement!

And I have just had a phone call from Sian; she and Dan have decided to get married in New York, this year! No date yet as they are waiting for the brochure to decide where in the Big Apple they will tie the knot. I am brimming over with emotion and excitement for them both - those two wee scamps suddenly old enough to get married - oops, there's been some spillage from the eye department, lol.


This is the card I made for Vix's Hero Challenge on Docrafts. The digi stamp is from Mo Manning and is called 'Prince Edward Island'. She is, of course, the irrepressible Anne Shirley from the Anne of Green Gables books. This character, along with Josephine March from 'Little Women' is/was one of my heroines. Anne was described as being plain with red hair and freckles which is an accurate description of the young hazeyj and she had a temper, which remarkably, I still retain. (Hair is now dyed, from grey, still have the freckles and the plain tho'!) If I tell you Anne also was a person with good intentions that never went according to plan well, me to a tee, eh? The sentiment is from Rainbow Echo Designs at Sentimental Sundays and was such a must to put with this stamp. The cardstock is orange core-dinations and Lasting Impressions and I made the flowers and butterflies out of scraps and gems. The 'vines' were heat embossed in white.

I had some success with the new baby cards which I made for the Creativity Club challenge on Docrafts; I won the random draw and I am now hosting the new challenge. I have entered a few more challenges but have to wait for ink for the printer before I can print off my digi stamps - my progress has stalled  for now. It maybe a few days before I can share new cards.

On that note I will say cheerio for now
