Happy Birthday, Kerry.....

My friend, Kerry, turned 40 on Wednesday (not sure she'll be to thrilled I've broadcast this to everyone,he,he), even though we live in the same village and our husband's knew each other,our paths had never crossed until just over two years ago. I got chatting to Kerry in a local craft shop and we hit it off straight away, we have so much in common and it's so nice to have someone live so close and have so many of the same interests.
Last time I saw Kerry's Mom she asked if I'd make her a card for Kerry's special birthday, of course I said yes. Kerry calls her Mom her 'Artistic Director' so I wanted it to be perfect, we decided on the colours hot pink and black as that is Kerry's colour theme for her 'Hat Party' tonight.Here's my finished card.


Val was thrilled with the card as was Kerry, *phew*, I always worry when I'm making for someone else that they are going to like it.
I'm off to decide what hat I'm going to wear for tonight, it's going to be a fun night and I will share some photo's with you next week. Have a great weekend, what ever you're up to.
