Celebrate! CR84FN10

Happy Sunday! Can you believe it's already a week into the New Year? Time is already flying, and we've barely gotten started! I have to say, I've managed to stick to my goals and lists this week - for me, that's pretty impressive for a resolution!

Time for today's CR84FN Colour Challenge! I need to warn me readers now... if ever that is a broken link, please forgive me. As you can see, we spell colour (and favour, and neighbour... the list goes on) diffeently in Canada - so I am always likely to spell it wrong in the blog address! I'll do my best ;)

Today's pallette is quite a spring one.. refreshing, don't you think?

Here is my card:

Don't you just love that pewter heart button? My local fabric store puts all their notions on for 50% off every long weekend, so we headed over for the savings during Boxing Day week (Canadian equivalent to Black Friday, I guess?) and I loaded up on some really cool buttons. Have I mentioned that I am completely addicted to buttons?

This card is for my amazing mother-in-law - yesterday was her birthday, so we took her out for dinner and my oldest helped me make her a cake. She does SO much for us, I try very humbly to give back... I just know I fall short most of the time!

Head on over to the CR84FN blog to try out this week's challenge!

Meredith - this is just fab!! I love the dotty background and the shading. And that green ribbon bow is just brilliant. I'm sure your MIL loved it.

Very pretty card. I like how you have just a hint of the yellow and lavender showing on your card. Works so well for this challenge.

Wonderful card! I am sure she loved it. The embossed paper is fabulous.
I just copy and paste the blog addresses so I never worry about misspelling them. You might want to try that. Works wonderfully. I am bad to type too fast and type wrong. hehe :)
