Double Challenge Card .........

This card is for one of my mum in law's friends who has just got a job after being very poorly for the last couple of years, but after an operation she is now fit and well so I thought it would be nice to wish her luck in her new job.

This card is for 2 challenges the first is a sketch challenge by Carol over at Carol's Paper Playce. Carol is doing a sketch every fortnight and she has a lovely stamp up for grabs for this one.

The other challenge that this card is for is for Arty Girlz Weekly Challenge. This week their theme is summer, so this is my entry as butterflies and flowers make me think of summer!

I hope you are all enjoying some nice weather today. Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Lynsey, thanks for stopping by my blog and introducing yourself. It's always nice to get to know other crafters.

Good luck to your mum-in-law's friend in her new job, I'm sure she will love your card. I love the colours you've used and the layout is fab.

I think I will just pop over to take a look at the challenge blogs you mentioned. (Don't know when I will fit in any card making - blog hopping becomes so addictive).

Please visit me again, I will be sure to drop by on you soon. Sue.
