My first challenge!


Hi everyone, thanks again for stopping by.

I finally got to Marks and Spencers today. I have a confession actually, I bought my friend a lovely cardigan a couple of weeks ago but it was hanging in my room and I liked it so much I ended up wearing it and thinking I’ll get her something else!! It’s her birthday tomorrow so I was cutting it a bit fine but I got her a lovely pressie today so it turned out ok  …phew!

I don’t usually enter challenges but when I saw The Ribbon Girl theme of pink and cream vintage it was right up my street. I made a card just for fun which is quite rare these days and I really enjoyed it.
