Feeling blue


Martha and I picked up my in laws from the airport this morning. They had a good flight, but a day's travelling takes it out on you, so while they and Martha are having a nap, I thought I would post this card I made for Daisy. Her 4th birthday is in January, but last year she didn't get a card from us (I know, it's terrible). We were in England for Christmas and I was going to make her card when we got back before her birthday. Unfortunately, snow played havoc with our travel plans and we ended up in Northumberland for Daisy's birthday. By the time we got back here, it was a bit late to make her a card. Anyway, I didn't want that to happen again, so I'm early with it. Daisy's favourite colour is blue (I think that's because she loves Thomas the Tank Engine!) and she is going through a pretty dress and princess phase, so I put both together. The stamp is a fab one from Kraftin' Kimmie called Marie Antoinette. I am entering this into the Allsorts challenge - monochrome.

Hey, what a coincidence, R decided a few days ago that blue was her favourite colour too! (though she insisted on buying the bright pink rain boots with a pony on yesterday). Maybe it really is the Thomas effect!

Lovely card by the way - I'm sure D will love it :-)
