2 BECOME 1

Last year I forgot to give My friend Jo her Birthday card, (I am a bit dilatory) I didn't forget her Birthday though.

so this year I thought I would make up for it by giving her last years as well!!

thank goodness her name isn't too long like Esmeralda or Constantine, just having a random moment !!

the papers are October Afternoon I think they are my most favourite ever.

and the letters are cut from the cricut using storybook cartridge.

back soon love Chris xx

Hi Chris

Don't be shocked, it's me at last. I'm still running in circles catching up and now the new babies are here I'm wondering if I will ever craft again and blogging seems right out of the window.

I did get your message, will try and give you a call later, potty runs allowing.

A lovely piece of work by the way.
