Well, Ive finally made a card and here it is......

Well I have had nothing but stick because I dont really make cards(all in good humour and a bit of craic of course).  In fact I try to do EVERYTHING craft related except cards.  And if you are a follower of my blog, you know that I like to be challenged.  And if there is a tutorial or something that you would like for me to make or show, I am more than happy to oblige.  Well.......a certain little friend of mine decided to be cruel and unusual and challenged me to making a card, knowing rightly the very mention of me making a card breaks me out in a cold sweat!!

But, I said I would do it and here it is.  Its ma wee mamma's birthday today, Happy 53rd Birthday Mammy (oh Im sure she is delighted with me giving away her age), hope you have a lovely day.  So this is the card I made for her.  The layout and the nesties labels are actually from a very lovely friend of mine over on DoCrafts called Sandra, AKA Decocards, She sent me some of the die cuts along with a beautiful card and I loved her layout.  So Sandra, thanks to you I was able to make a card!!
