Hi there.......remember me? I can't believe it's a whole month since I've posted anything here! I actually haven't even been in my craft room at all since I came back from my holidays, until now. I had to spring into action and make some birthday cards for my twin daughters, whose birthday is today - just call me 'Queen of the last minute'!

This is the card I made for Hayley, she is a big fan of pink!

I used a Forever Friends bear image and coloured it with Copic Markers, the greeting is by Stamp-It. The big flower is made with paper string using an old flower loom thing - not sure what the proper name is. My friend Sandie makes these and I figured out how to do them myself, but Sandie's look so much nicer than mine - I think the paper string I used is a little too bulky, but didn't really matter with this card as it will be hand delivered anyway. I put a smaller pink flower in the centre to hide my ugly knot!

I've entered this card in the fortnightly Forever Friends challenge - Birthdays.

Thanks for stopping by, at least I hope you all haven't given up on me yet! I'll try to visit some blogs over the next few days that I've also been sadly neglecting lately, and leave some long overdue comments!

Wonderful card. You did a great job coloring that adorable bear. I also love the design elements, especially that pink grid.
