It's Saturday!!

Don't get all excited about weekend now. No need now I've retired. Every day is like the weekend. Yummy!!!

I received my lovely candy from Nicola yesterday. Thank you SO much Nicola. Here's one card I made almost as soon as I got it!!!
It's very similsr to Nicolas but I couldn't help it, 'coz the flowers led me to the colour of CS I wanted to use.
Surprise surprise the patterned paper is exactly the same too! Didn't notice that till I compared them side by side!!! :0 Another reason I'm so pleased to get the candy is.... I never knew how ribbon got tied round a tent fold card!!!!*blush*.
Now I do!! :)

The 'cow' card is for a special friend who is daft on cows! She has anything and everything to do with cows in her house. Right down to splodgy black and white salt and pepper pots!
I did one with the cow watercoloured, but it didn't look right, so I decided to leave well enough alone. (Think it needs something on the end of the tag).
Pam and I are off to see her this weekend. We decided not to trust Royal Fail with her cards and pressies!
Also off to the chinese supermarket in Manchester, as dear hubby is running short of ingredients. ( He cooks some delicious chinese meals)!!

Well that's all for now peeps. Have a lovely weekend!!! Thanks again Nicola!!! :):)
