Birthday Box

Happy Sunday everyone, at least the weather is a bit better today than it was yesterday especially as I will be off in a little while to stand on the sidelines of a football match, lucky me lol.

Well who was a lucky girl then, yes you guessed it ME - OMG I was so amazed to find that I only went and won the Copic Marker giveaway that Donna from Bearly Mine Creations had been given from Cult Pens.  I only found out on Friday afternoon that I had won, sent my address to Donna and couldn't believe that they arrived first thing Saturday morning.  How was that for Customer Service.  I can't thank Donna or Cult Pens enough and will be having a play over the next few days so watch this space.

So onto my card.

Well this one is for a lady who saw my other box and asked me to do one for her daughters birthday, she didn't mind what I did but lilac had to appear too.  Hope she likes it.
