For Kim

Hi All
Managed to get one card completed today.
One of my young friends, who we met in Cuba a while ago,
has spent the last 12 mths worring that the job, that she
loves so much was going to disappear, however, she found out
the other day that it was safe ( at least for a couple of years )
so I am sending her this card just to tell her how pleased I
am for her.
 I know not many people love their work, but she does.
Very odd, but shes only young!!!

I am entering this card into the following Challenges

Stampalot Challenge  Inspiration, My inspiration comes from my spellbinder dies.

Dream Valley Challenge    Mothers Day

Ditzy Craftyness    Anything Goes

Cards Galore Challenge   Clean and Simple

Hi to all my crafty friends,
A lovely lady called Vee Cassidy, has been so kind, as to award me the Liebster Blog Award.

Leibster is from the German and means "dearest" and the award is passed to people who have inspired  and motivated me.
The list for my five nominated blogs is as follows, they are all people that inspire and encourage

.So in your turn, each of you should do these things:

1. Link back to the person who awarded you and thank them.

2. Post the award to your own blog.
