A card and I have reached 100 followers wow! (More candy added)

Hello every one, 100 FOLLOWERS WOO HOO! thank you to all that follow old & new. I have added extra yummy things to my candy, it's even more special as I didn't make becoming a follower a requirement of the candy so your following because you like my blog. Thank you thank you, your all most welcome.

It's been a wee while since a made a card so here we are, I have gone for the old size too no big 5x5 today. It's for a few challenges today too! Mojo Monday for the sketch, isn't it lovely? Basic Grey is Tutti Fruitti, I thought the colours I have used covered that, and the papers are lovely with the hearts on it. Alphabet Challenge U for Umbrella this week! the Play Date Cafe for the lovely colour combo. And finally a new blog challenge has arrived The Shabby Tea Room is also a colour combo. So pop along and go have a nosey at all the DT from these challenges as they are all pretty wonderful & Talented too!



I made my own paper for this little umbrella (litterally ;0) I bought a pot of paper perfect. I spread it out on some accitate added some fibers and let it dry over night, I really like it I made some green too! so watch out for that appearing lol. I thought of this sentiment while trying to connect the umbrella to the image, I don't think I have heard it any where else (who knows) but as I thought about friendship and combining this umbrella in to the card this little sentiment came to me and I really like it, it says " Friendship is the umbrella that protects us from the storms of life" I am really pleased with that one lol. Any way better get on with the weekend you all have a fabby time enjoy and be safe. Love Dawn xx
