Demure in Hue's of Blues

Good Evening Dear Friends, hope you all had a wonderful day, I have. My three beautiful Grandsons kept me company for a few hours this afternoon, while Mummy went to see her Neuro Surgeon, I won't go into details but we got good news, no further treatment will be necessary, just medication for a while.

I made this card for her yesterday and gave it to her when she returned from the hospital.
She loved it. I hope you do to. Just in case you are wondering why the sentiment says Friends, that's what my Daughter is to me My best friend, it wasn't always like that, but now she is a grown up and has children of her own we are much more appreciative of each other. I did ask her if I could enter her card the card in a few challenges and she said yes.

It falls into the category for 7 challenges

1. ABC Challenge: The brief this week was to use "Die Cuts". I have used a nestie and a swirl.
2. Papertake Weekly Challenge: This week are looking for "Faking It" anything fake, i.e. flowers, lace, ribbons etc. I made the flowers and distressed them, I also used fake pearls.
3. Ooh-la-la- Creations Challenge: My first time entering this challenge and they are looking for "Floral Fantasy"
4. Pollycraft Monday Challenge: A colour challenge this week of Black/White and 1 other colour of your choice. I chose Blue
5. Pile it On Challenge: This weeks them is once again Black/White and 1 other colour of your choice. I chose Blue
6. Cupcake Challenge: The brief this week is Swirls & Pearls, I have both on my card.
7. Allsorts Challenge: The theme this week is a sketch and two colour combo of your choice.

Thank you so much for coming to visit me, I really appreciate it. Hope you all have a lovely evening and come back to see me again soon.
