Special Saturday

What a fabulous treat.  My wonderful and crazy friend Jen from Edinburgh is in Manchester for the weekend and I got to go for dinner with her and her lovely friend Richard. 




I also got to eat great food - gnocchi with steak and tomato sauce.  It was delicious.

What else have I done today ... crafting of course.  This first card was inspired by challenges at:
Daring Cardmakers - layer it up (you can see the detail of the layers in the picture below)
Allsorts Challenge - a card for a baby or child 



This second card was inspired by the challenge at:
2 Sketches 4 You - Kazan's Sketch 57
I love the pink and the black together - very striking.
 
 
Just one more and this was inspired by the challenge at:
Get Sketchy - Sketch #48
I love this sketch so much I made 3 cards!  The paper is also some of my favourite.  I'd almost run out of my stash of Quite Contrary from My Mind's Eye, so was ever so happy to receive a mini paper pad on the front of a magazine.
 
 
Now I'd better finish my packing as I'm of to CHA in Chicago very early tomorrow morning.  I know I've said it before but I really do love my job.

Love, Wendy
