Forever Friends Birthday

Well thank you all so much for all your lovely comments on my return to blogland its so encouraging to know that your all still there!!!!!!
I have just received my Magnolia Ink Magazine and I must say its so much better than the last few I nearly didn't order it but since I've had it from issue one I needed it and it was lovely to see Julie from my former DT team Midweek Magnolia with her beautiful Christmas Stocking its just wonderful so well done Julie how lovely to be published in such a fab magazine.
Now onto today's card and its a "Forever Friends" bear which I have coloured and paper pieced the pressie.

Decided to do the image on a circle design with lots of added stickles and pearls.

Lots of beautiful foliage and a fabric brad on a punched flower.

More flowers and lovely checked ribbon with some bows that are just a great match.

These papers are from my stash they are Pion - cakes which I purchased from Live and Love Crafts when they first opened.

A side view of what I think is a lovely card.
Challenges I am entering:
Joanna Sheen  -  Food for thought - I'm hoping my papers will comply with the theme.
I Love Promarkers  -  All that glitters.
Bunny Zoe  -  Ribbon
Bearly Mine  -  Anything Goes
Well that's it for me today I really have had a busy week was up early Monday as I had to take my lovely mum into hospital for a hernia op, then Allan to Doctors then in the afternoon hospital with Allan then my monthly Doctors appointment then ended the day nicely with hospital again to visit mum as they wouldn't let her out!!!!
Off to link up challenges then sort pots before I get to sit and read my mag properly.
Thanks again for all your lovely comments and I'm sorry I've lost a few followers but would like to say a big hello to my new ones I do so appreciate you all popping by and leaving me comments then I can return the compliment and pop over to you!!!
Hope you are all having a lovely week Chanelle xx
