Penguin Friends

A good day for crafting but not good for taking photos.......been dull and foggy all day here
I nearly came a cropper early this morning when I went out  to take Gem for a walk
Black ice on the footpath and Gem pulling like a lunatic because she saw a cat accross the road......not a good combination!
Anyway managed to keep my balance but came back inside to put my rubber soled wellies on......still had to be careful though......hate icy footpaths!
Good News about Prince William & Kate Middleton today!
I do love a nice royal wedding

Anyway on to my card which I am entering for Truly Scrumtious

Mia's Card

It's taken me ages to load these photos this afternoon......Mr Blogger is playing up for me!

Well here is my little grandaughters card following the sketch I designed yesterday (see post below)
I also designed this sentiment especially for her
Mia has just learnt how to write her own  name
Everyone has called her Mimi since she was born but she rightly pointed out to me the other week that her name was M-i-a 'Mia' not Mimi so I thought I better put her real name
..........I don't want to get into trouble again lol!

Anyway onto my card
I am going to enter this for

You are welcome to use it too!
Hopefuly I will get it made today or tomorrow
I have got a special sentiment in mind  but I have yet to design it
