The Perfect Pair...

Hi everyone,

And welcome to my page and place on this wonderful blog hop, I hope you're enjoying yourself so far!

I could not be happier to be part of this wonderful Design Team.  I am a giant megafan of all things Make The Day Special, always have been, always will be!  And we have two people to thank for it, and that is Tara and Rick.  The hard work they put in to bringing us all the things we love, and that make us all very happy, is truly quite astounding. 

So we just wanted to say 'Thank you', and show how much we appreciate them and their hard work...and this seemed the most fitting way!  So Tara, I really hope you're loving it...

And here's my 'foodie' offering, to Tara and Rick...

I used Avery Elle's 'Berry Good' set as this just seemed to match our theme perfectly.

I stamped out the pear, twice, adding the sentiment to the middle of one.  I then watercoloured and fussy cut both.  I added a patch of watercolour to my card panel, with a few flicks and splodges added across my background.  I added a twirl of twine, and embellished with a scattering of enamel dots and a few little gems.  I matted onto black card, and mounted onto a kraft card base, and there you have it, a simple celebration of an awesome couple!

Well, that's me done, but boy oh boy is there still some amazing inspo ahead of you!  Next up is our unreal talented and awesome Julia ...and a full list of all blogs in case any one got a little lost!

I would just like to say, Tara, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you, for everything. 

...and to you guys reading this - thank you all for your time and energy every week.

Send my love to the rest of the gang while you're 'hopping', & enjoy :)
