Willow Dressing Up

Hi everyone

I hope you are all well. I have been trying to get my bedroom decorated so I haven't had much time for card making. Not that I've done much myself; Suzanne has been doing most of it for me with some help from Kim but the house is in such a blooming tip I can't find anything. I'm hoping to get it straightened out over the weekend. That's the football finished until the World Cup starts so I've no excuse - 32 days to go!!

I made this card for Erin for her birthday but I couldn't put it on in case she saw it. It was a coo's tail job as usual - last minute. It was her birthday on Saturday so I had to get up early to make the card. Now, normally I'm late I know, but not that late, so naturally, if anything could go wrong with this card, it did. More haste, less speed. Anyway, here it is. I used the beautiful Willow Dressing Up - it suits Erin perfectly, new shoes and frock and she's in heaven.

My card recipe:
