A Birthday Card and some news!

Before my news, here is the card I created today for my husband’s birthday, which is tomorrow.

I used a lovely kit I discovered from a charity site called Songbird Avenue https://www.songbirdavenue.com/. The kit is called Folk Art, and a quick glance and you will soon recognise that Shabby Princess has played a part in it’s creation. All proceeds less paypal expenses will go to charity – this month to the March of Dimes which helps premature babies.

So – my news….

I have been invited to join Lara’s Creative Team over at Dusty Bear https://www.dustybear.com. I have submitted a couple of applications in the past few days, but this came out of the blue. I love Lara’s vintage style so much, in fact, her Amid Memories kit was my first digital scrapbooking purchase, and Lara set me on road of digi-challenges – so I am thrilled.

It is also at Lara’s Dusty Bear Yahoo Group https://groups.yahoo.com/group/dustybear/ that I spend way to much time, but if you haven’t already – check out the great Quick Page challenge – we have 28 wonderful pages, and there is still time to join in.

Time to go, but before I do, a friend shared the following quote with me this morning:

“We are so busy giving our children what we didn’t have, that we don’t have time to give them what we did have”

Take care,

    Congrates about joining Lara’s team!!!!! I knew it wouldn’t be to long, before you were on at least one CT, if not more!!

  2. Congratulations on being invited to join Lara’s CT. You should be very proud of yourself. I and every member of dustybear’s Yahoo group wish you much success.
    I love your quote and live each day trying to give my children both which is a hard act to follow these days but I have always given them my time freely. Maybe that is why I have been blessed to have a great relationship with all 3 of my children, their partners and now my grand daughter.
    Once again wishing you all the best being a member of Lara’s CT.
