Happy Birthday Cheryl

Good afternoon all!

Today is my eldest daughter, Cheryl`s birthday. Being Ruby`s mum the last few months have been quite difficult but Cheryl has always had a strong personality and she`s coped really well. I`m sure this is where Ruby gets her strength from.
I hope that by her next birthday all this is behind us and we are all looking forward to a brighter future.

This is the card I made for her. I had promised not to make another Poppy card but since I had the die I just had to use it.
Really straight forward. Sentiment printed from comp then run through with Swiss Dots EF.
Memory Box Poppy die cut out twice in green and twice in red. Flower heads chopped off, coated in Glossy Accents and replaced. Job done.

Just a quick note...Ruby starts school on wednesday for the first time. She has had some time at the nursery before but with all the treatments she`s had it`s been a bit random. Now it`s the biggie.
Can`t quite believe it, doesn`t seem 5 minutes since she was a baby. I`ll let you know how she gets on.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
