Spring and Winning News!

Hello friends
1st of April!  How did that happen??
I promise no April Fool's in this blog post :)

This is the card I made for my Mum for Mother's Day,
very Springlike and featuring Graphic 45 - Secret Garden, Sprigs and Blooms Four.
Today's card has been featured on the Crafty Power blog here -
all visits and comments very much appreciated :)
I like placing photo corners onto my cards, it gives them a nice finished touch,
excellent that you can ink them too.
As mentioned, I was treated very well by my boys on Mother's Day.
I love every single one of my gifts and just knowing they went shopping and
selected them is very touching.  I should have photographed the cards -
they are superb at selecting cards - haven't got them making them quite yet!

Also today announcing the winner of the knitted squares Baby Blanket of Love.

The winner is ticket number 37 - Jane Willis.
Congratulations Jane - please email: hope-chances@live.co.uk
with your address details and the blanket will be on its way to you.
Thank you to all those who purchased raffle tickets,
such a good cause and talking of good causes....
April's Charity Kit is being announced tomorrow!

Take care friends.

Your prezzies from Mitchell and Elliott are very lovely, I see the Buttons are 'front row' haha.

Hello Christine. My Mum would have loved that card. Her favourite colours. I decided to go slightly oriental this year as she's into every Feng Shui at the moment. Well done boys for their very feminine presents. See you tomorrow for the Charity Kit. xxMargaretxx
