PKS Challenge 47 It's SPECIAL!

'Why is is 'special' do I hear you ask?
Well, it's special because it's my best American buddy's birthday this weekend!
It's the Queen Peach Kathy Jakopovich's birthday on Sunday and Lorie (another best bud from over the Pond), has made this challenge just for us to celebrate Kathy's special day.
I love her to bits . She works like a donkey 24/7 to bring us her special whimsical stamps month in, month out.

Here's the challenge sketch

And here's my card for my very great pal....

It's winging it's way to her and hope she likes it.
Prima flowers and Echo Park Dots & Stripes DP.
The sentiment is from an old wooden stamp that has no maker's name on it.

Pop on over to the Peachy Keen Challenge blog to read all about the special challenge
 (and hopefully, join in).
Hope it isn't chucking it down where you are!
The rain here in Cheshire is ceaseless! UGH!
What happened to the Siberian snowfall we were supposed to be getting ???
Gone with the wind I reckon! lol

Thanks for dropping in, I love getting visitors!
