Shabby Chic friendship??

Happy Thursday folks hope the weather is kind to you..bit of iffy weather on UK coast..
I met Janet yesterday my very dear blogging friend & boss of Pinkgemdesigns
lovely to see her again..I have actually SEEN Janet in the flesh so to speak
for the last 3yrs as she comes to visit her mum & dad who live very close to me..
We picked up our new car today & on the way to M/sons to fill with diesel guess what.??.
yep it poured down.. bit nerve racking trying to remember were all the controls are..
well we got home thinking there was loads of room to get into the garage only to
find out its only 1inch. narrower than the last car..phew..talk bout a squeeze,

Now onto me Shabby chic creation?? I used this lovey hAanglar image from the
Gratitude collection..coloured with markers & prismas..matt & layered, the gorgeous 
DP is MME (my minds eye) quite contrary. green bazzill card stock, WOC flowers
& ribbon, MS B/fly punch..LOTV sentiment stamp.. mag leaf die..cant remember where the metal
corner is from sorry..enamel B/fly charm is from GF America..thanks sweetie..heart shape doily..
pearl brad & pearls from stash..I distressed all the edge's hoping for a Shabby Chic look ..


Wild Orchid chall. want  Shabby chic friendship 
Just  Magnolia chall  is a B/fly theme..
Lovely hAnglar only chall.  Card for a Girl.

thanks for stopping by today Hugs to all Christine x
