Forever Friends

Hi Peeps, hope you've all recovered from your blogging crisis, I'm sure there were a few choice words being shouted at the computers on Friday lol. Well, I've been told about Livc Writer and downloaded that yesterday but I'm not having any luck for some reason, I tried to type out this post on it but when I type my words aren't coming up, the curser is moving along as I type but nothing is appearing, any clues? I'll have another look at it tomorrow and see where I am going wrong. Anyway, I made this little card using one of my old forever friends stamps, I haven't used these in ages but  i love them so much so I'm going to make an effort to play with them more often. I've coloured them with copic but one of the colours, my E50, has vanished so I'm not completely happy with the colouring, it'll do though. The papers I've used are 'hideaway' from first edition and the ribbon and buttons are from the Ribbon Girl. The forever friends challenge theme was a recipe of 3 different designer papers, 3 colours (mine are green, pink and yellow) and 3 embellishements (mine are 2 buttons and a brad) so I have followed that recipe and I'm happy with how it turned out.  Oh yeah, a few of you asked about my son's cake box lol, well........I did try and not get involved but......I did a tiny little, just a smidgen of stamping. It wasn't really cheating, I only stamped the words 'yummy cakes' on it, he did all the colouring and sticking etc and then he done his own little bit of stamping, yes I got the cupcake stamps out, yes I hid all the dinosaur stamps and the car stamp but.......he found a dragon! yes I tried to convince him that cupcakes would look lovely on his cake box but he wasn't having it, I had to step back with tears in my eyes and let him stamp his dragons. I'm so annoyed with myself that I didn't get a photo, I meant to take one on Thursday night and only remembered when I was in bed and on Friday morning we were running late, lost his P.E. kit so just didn't have time. But he was very proud of his red dragon cake box and he enjoyed decorating it and thats all that matters lol. (I will ask the teacher to send home two at the next fete, one for kalen and one for mummy lol). Well, I'm off to bed with my new book, Madeleine, have any of you got it, I think of that little girl all the time, bless her.

What a shame you didn't get a photo of the cake box:( but so long as he went to school happy lol. Love your gorgeous FF card Donna, like you I love these bears but never get to play:( You asked about my circles they are from Nestabilities no. 5 lacey circles. I got them at Pink Gem:) They are definitely my most used.
