Just wanted to show you this...


Morning Everyone, NO, your not imagining it, I really am doing a mid-week post..lol...just wanted to share this on my blog, kinda sorry I bothered now as it's taken me an age to get to this point, my pc is poorly AGAIN....but maybe a bit of TLC will sort it......



I just noticed that CreativeInspirations have a favourite colour challenge on today, so, I will be entering into that, the challenge this week is Favourite Colour Combo.....and this is one of mine, but there are to many to chose from, if your anything like me, well, I could fill a page with colours I love...is that normal or do most people have just the odd one..lol...does anyone even care I wonder..lol.....
Made this for a very special friend who has been not very well recently, I know she has received it so am in the clear to show,.
I know she liked it, so that was a relief..
The back with a little Tag for a message if you feel the need.

That's it I think, I may have a little look and see if any other challenges to enter, hope your week is going well, I am waiting for Friday when my kiddos get back from hols, but been a very busy time here while they are away, decorating has begone...at last....lol....
My oldest son, Lee, has taken his son, Kaleb to the United ground today....(.that's Manchester United for those who don't know)
It was a gift for them at Christmas, Kaleb was so excited, and it will probably end up costing our Lee a fortune, but worth it to see his face..lol...told them to get lots of pics....maybe get to show you some.....
Have a fab day, see you all on Friday for a new CraftyCatz challenge....thanks for your visit I so appreciate it....hugs, Janette.xxxxx
