Friends Forever CAS Card (All Dressed Up images)

Hi to all my crafty friends and anyone new to my blog,

I'm sure most of you wouldn't have noticed I've been absent in Blogland (so sweet of Carol and Jennifer Scull to check on me) but I'm back with a vengeance now hehe. We went on a beautiful family cruise last week and had such a wonderful relaxing time. We went up through the Great Barrier Reef (in Queensland, Australia) for 7 nights. We had never been on a cruise before but we loved it and are now thinking about a Mediterranean cruise, wouldn't that be lovely! Has anyone been on one? Would love to hear what you thought.

Anyway, so that's why there has been no blogging from me but now I have just created up a storm since I have had a cold for the past week since we got back so no going out, just crafting when I had the energy (must have been a man's cold I had hehe).

I love these 2 girls below, I have created with them once before but made them a similar height this time so that they were more like friends than sisters (they are a set and one is usually shorter than the other). I have kept my card quite clean and simple as I really wanted them to stand out. I have added my previous card which I made for my sister a while back. If you want to purchase these girls you can find them at All Dressed Up.

Hopefully you'll check out my new cards being posted today, as always they are all very different (in colours/papers/style) which means my crafting table needs a good tidy up now hehe. I'll be keeping the rest of my blog posts short and sweet.
