VIP birthday #2 - from me




This is another fab Mo Manning image called "Checking Facebook",
ideal for my daughter, who is always on FB.
My daughter loves red, & her dressing gown is aqua.

I was in M&S the other day & saw some cream cakes on display. I stopped, did a double take & bought a box......................because I wanted the box to use on this card! Lol. I knew it was just what I needed to go with the aqua on the dressing gown. Put a piece of ribbon with it & voila!

(btw - the family appreciated the cakes lol.)



Close up of the image.
I use Ryman's bright white 200gsm card for my Promarkers, but this batch is not the same as usual. It's not as bright, or as smooth, & the Promarkers were bleeding on the card. I am very disappointed with it - I'm hoping I have a rogue batch & that it isn't a permanent change.
HOTP sentiment which I used on the inside of the card.

tfl, & for any comments you may wish to leave.

Ha ha Sandra, well ok then, I forced myself to eat a cake too - but yes, I really did buy the cakes because I wanted the box!

Willie - I certainly didn't take any photos of her at 4.45a.m. when she brought a dead mouse into my room to play with! When I took it away from her, she ran outside to see if she could find another plaything.
