Forever Friend


forever friends 003


Hi, are you enjoying a relaxing Sunday, or is there no such thing in your household lol ? Its food shopping day for us today, yuk, I don’t enjoy it at all but I’ve learnt never to go shopping when your hungry, have a good feed first as the bill doubles in price if you haven’t . Had a lovely day yesterday at the horse and cattle show and I’ve decided I want a sheep, they were so cute! Although not everyone agreed with me, what do you think?

Well, I made this card last night for the forever friends monthly challenge, 3 design papers, I had fun making one of these ……oh what are they called? lol  folded flower?  Fan fold flower! (had to look it up) here is the tutorial from Beate’s Blog.

this is adorable Donna, love your folded flower!

who wouldn't love to have a fluffy sheep! I think you should buy a whole flock of them so you can have enough wool to knit the family sweaters!! sound good? ;)
hugs & blessings!
