When I was at school, I had a friend called Kate. She was my best mate all through secondary school, and we got up to plenty of mischief (and giggles) together. A few years after we moved to Germany, Kate moved to Australia. And we hadn’t seen each other since then. BUT (along with her Aussie boyfriend), she paid a visit to her parents in the UK a few weeks ago, and decided to combine this with a little tour of Europe – including Düsseldorf. Yippeeeee!!!
We had SUCH a fun weekend together! It felt like we were 16 again – and, as it happens, we’re both still just as
silly high spirited as we were back
then. Unfortunately, we were so excited
about our get-together that we completely forgot to take any photos of our
adventures (otherwise I would have shared some with you).
Just before they came to stay with us, Kate’s boyfriend proposed to her (all romantic and proper – in Paris). A great opportunity for a bit more card-making! This time, I got the buttons out. And here’s what I did with them.....
I was really pleased with how it turned out, and I think I see more card-making in my crafty crystal ball!
If you’re after ideas for handmade cards, by the way, Pinterest has heaps!!! Is it just me, or does anyone else believe that Pinterest was invented solely to sneakily steal away hours upon hours of our time without us realising it?!? Once I get started on there, Simon has to prise the laptop out of my hands by force when my eyes start to turn square!
Off to Pinterest now, then.....
