Happy Birthday Cute Card Thursday AND A Huge Thank You to Carmen xx

I received the most wonderful surprise this morning when these were delived from my lovely friend Carmen in Liverpool. We 'met' several years ago on the Charmed Cards and Crafts Forum and Carmen, and in fact all the girls and boy on there have given me constant strength and support during this illness. Thank you sooooo much Carmen and to everyone else at Charmed and to my blogging pals who've sent such meaningful messages xxxxxxx I can't tell you what a boost it is to me!

Today is Cute Card Thursday's first birthday and there is a fab sketch to follow this week, so I made the team at CCT a birthday card. The papers are K&Co Lotus Tea Box, the beautiful image is coloured with copics, I've used my nesties for the shapes and cuttlebug embossing in there too, as well as Basic Grey brads, Cosmo Cricket chip letters and Prima gem swirls.

Love the look of the new CCT challenge blog too - and there's some fab prizes on offer for the celebrations.

I'm off for another chemo session now, wearing red nose of this space for a piccie if I'm brave enough!

Do something funny for money today!!!xxx
