Papertake Weekly Challenge and ABC Challenge

Tilda with Christmas Tree...



This weeks Papertake Challenge is "3 of something".
Fortunately I had "one I made earlier" that I could use for this challenge. It has 3 different Magnolia papers on it - I bought them last year and really like them but don't seem to be able to get hold of them this year.
The Challenge at ABC Challenge is to use lots of flowers - so here they are....


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I usually glitter them but didn't bother this time.
And here is the full card......
The lace is some that I got from our local branch of Boyes and I have coloured the image with Copic Markers.

I have just been to visit my mother's cousin this morning - she is 78 today and I just can't believe her.

For one thing she has been in the Red Cross for 50 years and still goes on duty for them sometimes at special events where she has to be up really early in the morning.
She has recently lost two stones in weight not only by dieting but by going to the gym!!
She also wanted me to have a look at her laptop (yes she can work the computer as well) and she has just bought a digital camera that does movies - ready for when she goes to Prague next March. She is going there with her nephew to show him where her brother got killed during the war.

One of her favourite things is playing on her Nintendo DS, and she has a mobile phone - all this at 78 years old, isn't that brilliant??
That's all for today, thank you for looking.
