Good morning

and what a beautiful one it is too. The sun is shining and it is quite warm but windy. Let's hope it stays like this for a while now. I am sick of hearing the rain banging on the conservatory roof!! There can't be much left up there! I wonder if this means we won't have a water shortage this summer. I very much doubt it :)

The exploding box was a big success and I now have to make a special card for the same baby's Christening bbut this time from Great Auntie. I have also just received an order by text message (never had one by text before) for another exploding box but in blue. That one is needed asap too!

I only made one card yesterday and that was a rush birthday card ordered by a friend at lunch time and delivered at 2 pm! I used a pink haze card from PDA It's the first time I have used this particular card and I think it is really pretty. The papers are form Papermania and Making Memories. The flower is a mix of blooms from Dunelm, Sarah's Cards and a RAK I received from someone on Carolyn's forum

Sorry about the wonky scan :) I'm off now to see if it fits the latest challenge set by Jo on Bex's forum. The challenge is to use a pink base card, plus black, white and cream. Does this fit the bill? I will let you know.

I am off now to make the other 'special' card. I may be back later.

Lovely card - I love the edging on this and I would say it fits the bill for the pink challenge admirably!

The card is gorgeous - and I definitely fits to bill :) Too many hard and fast rules make challenges no fun, I think a pink haze card blank counts :)
