Moving Along With The Times - this week's challenge

Oh my goodness!
Thank you all for your latest comments. I am thrilled to bits that you have liked my last post. It is a great boost to my flagging confidence
So, thank you to Astrid, Liddl don't stock the card very often and I have missed out in the past. The latest purchase will last me a long while, to Carole, Diane, Glenda, Terri and Darlene for joining the dance. talking of which, Gail I'm glad you enjoyed watching the dancing at Cubana, you must let me know where that is. I think the very up close and personal dance you saw may have been Kizomba, not Salsa, although depending on who you're dancing with can be very up close and personal too!

I would like to enter today's card in this week's MAWTT See here their 6th birthday
I made it for my son's widow who celebrates her birthday on Sunday. 
I wanted to do something on the slightly bright side Thank goodness for Liddl card and paper!

  10. HI Karen,
    I love this card, and agree with you, I like the landscape effect so it could be done with just a small alteration to the labels. it's pretty and bright, and your floral arrangement is lovely.

  11. Karen I'm not sure why your confidence is flagging as your cards are truly lovely xx if your confidence is flagging for other reasons then I send you a great big hug! I noticed you said the card is for your Sons widow - no words!!.....Anyway you asked about Cubana, it is in Sheffield which is my nearest city centre so think it would be a little too far for you to travel too, but who knows if you are ever in the area!!! Have a lovely weekend and let your confidence soar xx GailT xx

  12. Brilliant card, love your fantastic design.
