1 Card 3 challenges

A very good Monday morning to you all, I am still trying to come down from "cloud 9". I spent most of Saturday and Sunday doing my grand-daughters cards, but managed to slip in a challenge card to fit 3 challenges, hopefully.....the 1st is the sketch at Friday Sketchers, the 2nd is for Cute Card Thurday, where they wanted you to use "eyelets", this was the 1st time I have used my provo craft Silent tool, and I can tell you my birthday wish list has just been added too "Crop-a-dile" please (my hubby and kids moan at me every year, for saying I need nothing for my birthday...well it is only 3 weeks away from Xmas, but I can tell you they are all in for a shock this year, LOL). The 3rd part of the challenge was for Charismacardz where they wanted to see "tags" on your project...I will be using this card as a birthday card for my daughter Nikki's step-daughter who has a birthday on the 31st. I hope she will like it. I am off to my shed to do some more crafting and to wrap up the parcel for my grand-daughters birthday on Wednesday.. must get it in the post....Hugs to you all. Avril xxx

It is my sincere hope that my grand-daughter will want to craft with Grandma, but she's only 8 months old just now. Love card you made for the challenges. I'm going to get busy on those challenges again. And, by all means, add the crop-a-dile to your list; it's a wonderful and necessary tool.

Hiya Avril,
I see you said you have no printer,
well have you heard of a site called, its free to join and its a site where people give away things, join your nearest one, and all it costs for things is for you to pick them up,
Just thought this might help, as I know like me money is always tight,
Hope your not offended by me telling you this,
