Pink and Brown....

one of my favourite combinations....and yet I never think to wear these colours together. I shall have to go and have a look in my wardrobe and see what looks good.

This card is for my Pastor and his wife for Easter.

That double bow really stretched me...I had a sleepless night trying to remember how to tie it!! I first saw it on Becca's blog. She had made quite a few tutorials on tying bows...her blog is wonderful if you want to visit. A few weeks ago she took all the tutorials off her website as she is now producing a bow maker with a DVD...I completely agree with her decision...but gosh it was hard!!! I am going to look into purchasing the DVD etc but postage costs may make that difficult.

An update on Mum's house move...she has had about 6 viewings so far which is very encouraging and she is decluttering her cupboards...well her version of it anyhow!!! ha ha
