Jo got us all in a dither with this brilliant dar - get someone to make it for you!!!

I called on my lovely craft friend Gez and asked her is we could do each others!!! She rose to the challenge and after a bit of PM'ing and e-mailing we decided to have a colour theme of green with a touch of purple and the card was to be for a friend. We then decided to use one of
Kathy Blacks Sketches to work by. Please pop over there as she has some really lovely sketches you can work with!

The first card is mine and I have used some green patterned paper(no name on the back) that came from a kit. I stamped the words using a lovely stamp by Hero Arts and lightly chalked the main words in purple.

Here is Gezzy's card, isn't it lovely??? I am amazed at how alike our cards have turned out, just goes to show how similar our tastes are!!! For more of her crafty goodies check out her blog here. You will be delighted by her other crafting skills!!!

Thank you so much for taking a look at our work. XXX
