{ Woohoo!!! }

That's right! I got the little one on the bus today!! Woohoo for me! She got on, no goodbye, no hug, no nothin'. My stomach had been in knots for hours worried about what would go down today...and nothing! I am so happy! So got back from the bus stop and put the other little one(not mine) down for a nap and went down to stamp!!

I decided to work on a few things. Firstly, Beate's Sketch Challenge. Then I also, need to make up a card for Norma's MIL bday challenge. Please head on over and read about Norma's Challenge and the background behind this special RAK collection for her MIL.
I have been wanting to try out the 'Faux Mother of Pearl' Technique and thought this was the perfect opportunity. Nothing says a 90 year old's bday like pearls...well to me anyway ;0) I am quite happy with the way this one turned out.

Thankyou, Tracy for your lovely card. I'm looking forward to seeing it. And the pearl is just
right for the era.
Never mind her era, I love pearls too. Guess that makes me "old" too! LOL
