Our challenge over at Passion for Promarkers this week is
GIVE US A CUDDLE and was chosen by the lovely Andie.
We are sponsored this week by


I had a card to make to congratulate a lady who had just become a Grandmother for the first time and I remembered having this image from A day for Daisies which is so perfect.

Kym's Crafty Cards said...

Pinky, what a gorgeous card. Love the sentiment. Hope it's a long time before I'm in need of a card like that!!! Hope all goes well for your surgery. Some pain and discomfort after the surgery will be a doddle compared to what you've been putting up with. I remember it well even though it's 19 years since I had my surgery. You know where I am if you need any advice/help when you get home. Feet up and plenty of rest and NO crafting for a while. Kym xxx
