We sped off to Yorkshire at the weekend for a quick visit to see our gorgeous grandaughters. I took up with me some initial wooden letters to make door hangers. They had great fun covering and decorating them with the bits and pieces I took with me.

The MSE challenge (I think!) was to do something different and I thought I have a play with some Flowersoft that's been lurking around for some time. It can just about be seen on the roses in this image from Pink Petticoat. The paper is from the Papermania Rose Garden stack and the flowers are from Wild Orchid with a little touch up from a Promarker pen. The fab Rainmac got hold of the inverted scallop cirlces for me and I used one with a scallop circle to cut the green frame. It's been a while since I've entered a challenge so here goes and thanks to Melissa for all the listed challenges :
I'd like to enter this in the following challenges

I was asked by a smashing friend to make a 1st Communion card for her nephew. I had absolutely no idea where to start but I knew that this was a very intelligent young man and that it needed to convey the meaning of the ceremony. I found this simple stamp on Ebay and decided to make as clean and simple as possible with a prayer inside. This is how it turned out. A huge thank you to Sarah for finding the Spellbinders inverted scallop circles for me, I'm going to have fun with these.
