Happy Birthday Louise!!

Good Evening all you lovely Bloggers,

I made this card last week for Louise's Birthday which was on the 15th June but have not had a chance to put it on my blog until today!!  

I have used this totally adorable Saturated Canary image called "Ava" which Krista gave away as a freebie back in May. I have been dying to use it ever since I got it and what better time than to celebrate my lovely daughter's birthday :0)  

Having celebrated her birthday on the 15th, Louise and a friend hosted another Macmillan Charity event on the 16th June. This time it was an evening event held at "The Starting Gate" pub in Newbury and included raffles, auctions and some interesting (drinking) games - LOL!! All in all, these wonderful girls managed to raise over £1200 - do they rock or do they rock!!  I am so proud of them both.

Medium - Promarkers, chalek and Victorian Velvet Distress Ink
Papers - First Edition "Sweet Owl"
Ribbon, brads and flowers - stash
Die Cut Leaves - Memory Box "Tender Leaves"
Die Cut Branches - Memory Box "Madera Corner" - cut into about three pieces
Dies used for card shape - Spellbinders and Go Kreate
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

So that's it from me for tonight. Thank you so much for looking and for all the lovely comments you always leave - they really are appreciated.
Big Higs
