Pocket Friend for Make it Monday #41

This posting is dedicated to our precious daughter , Michelle .
HAPPY BIRTHDAY  to you Michelle .
Sending love ,  hugs and warm wishes for a wonderful day .


Here it  is , Monday again . And here it is STILL cold in Adelaide .
Hi there blog friends . Welcome to my room . Thank you for popping in to browse . I sure hope  that you like what you have seen .

Had a perfect afternoon with a couple of crafting buddies yesterday after a horrid start to the day . I was multi tasking early in the morning ..watching cake in oven , washing up , setting up washing machine and helping Doug with bathroom stuff when I could hear water running . Checking things out I discovered that I had left tap running in kitchen sink with plug in and water was cascading through the unit to the front door . Luckily we have tiles in that area so no carpets touched thank heaven .
It took an hour to move fridge,  dining table and chairs and mop up all the water. Then  to top it all off I spilt my cuppa over on the craft table while chatting to girls .
So far this morning things are calmer and more under control . It is still cold but all is right in the camp .

Now of course being Monday I am happy to see that there were over 200 entries in last weeks
 Make it Monday .   Michelle must be over the moon !
Congrats to the winners from last week . Thank goodness i'm not the one who has to choose as all entries are worthy .
Now for this week ..

Sponsor - Mandy of...
Cupcake Cards and Crafts
'We love to bring you digital instantly downloadable cardmaking papers which are trendy, affordable and so easy to use'

The prize will be 'Polly Anna' Paper collection, a bright colour palette with fabulous modern designs!

For my pick this week I have chosen 171, Tracey . I loved this little set that she had created as a perfect gift .
I loved the soft feminine feel to the lot . I think Tracey's blog is well worth a visit the next time you have cuppa in hand and time  to spare .
And once more to finish my posting,  I share my card .

Here I  have used one of the digi papers from our sponsor as a background . .This is the first time I  have used digi papers and  resized them for a card . The card base is Bashful Blue , SU.  The teddy and the pocket are images from Kaszazz. And the 'Friend" is a diecut , Sizzix
Now don't forget this week you can be a winner  too,  even if you don't have an entry to share , just by commenting .When commenting on another’s MIM entry don’t forget to mention that you saw it on MIM and the more entries you comment on in this way, the more chances you have of winning.

I look forward to visiting as many entries as  I  can this week .I missed a few last week due to family crisis at home and I am sorry for that . Hope that this week is better .
Catch you again soon , cheers for now , Shirley-Anne .
