Hello, I love Forever Friends and I love this stamp especially as it was only £2, I do like a bargain!  Im quite pleased with the shading on this bear as I remember getting shading lessons last June from Steve and I couldn't do it subtlety at all but I think I am getting better.  I just love the Pear Green PM that Ive used with Hot Pink, it wouldn't be a colour that I naturally gravitate towards but this colour combo is gorgeous!  
The delish papers are from the freebie set earlier this summer in a craft mag, as usual, I am always trailing up the rear and last to show things!

This is a card I have made for a niece's 30th on Saturday, Ive been very kind and hidden the 30 on the red tag that's under the white one, I mean, at that age they can be very sensitive about the ageing process.  At my age, Im just glad I'm still going!  The big 5-0 next year, Ive decided that fat and fifty is not so nifty so I'll be SW bound in October!  
The pretty image is Lola's Perfect Shoes by PP as are the papers.

I hope you all have a really lovely week and after having 4 days of dog sitting and a birthday, I do hope I get much more time this week to do some crafting!
Thank You for calling by!

Thank you for your advice over at my blog! Seems that PM's are the way to go! Just need to try find the money!

Thank you for your comments about Millie. She is my baby and i love her being tri coloured. She has a perfect black circle on her back as well.
