Forest Friends

Sorry I didn’t get here yesterday…my back is being *difficult* at the moment and doing anything is a bit of a challenge. I spent most of the day in bed yesterday, but I did get into the craft room and have a tiny play with my new Forest Friends set. When I saw this set in the new Spring Mini I knew I had to have it. Those little animals are too cute and I thought it would be good for all kinds of cards. As my mojo is still MIA this card is pretty simple…but the gorgeous Porcelain paper & stunning rose trim makes up for that….I hope :)

Yes, I’ve just realised that the trim is sagging when I stand it up like that…so I’ll pop a little glue dot under it before I give it away.

And here’s the card from Sunday’s MDUC. It too is very simple. There’s one thing to point out though…the blue and silver paper was the belly band on the beautifully wrapped book that Lauren sent me for my birthday. I loved it so much I couldn’t bear to throw it away and wanted to use it on a card. As the theme is *Winter is here* I thought the blue & silver looked *icy*…LOL!

OK, that’s enough of sitting in this chair for today. I hope I am feeling up to making something later on today…after a little rest :)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,

Kudos to you for using Lauren's belly band; it's gorgeous! Love that blue & yellow together :)

Hope your back stops bothering ou soon!!!

Lovely cards Kristie - the Forest Friends one is so pretty and love the added touch of the little roses. It blends so well with the background paper and the greeting.

Love your card for our MDUC theme - beautiful colours again and love the way you've added the co-ordinating paper and the Birthday greeting. Great job with both cards.
