It is quite a few weeks ago now we received an invitation by a lovely young couple to their wedding. It came out of the blue, and we are so happy for them and chuffed to be invited. So I have been wanting to make a special card for them to congratulate them and to let them know we will most certainly be coming to celebrate them!

Because I've been in hospital, it has taken this long to get around to making it, so it needs to be sent off quickly, before they start to think we've forgotten all about them.

It just so happens Crafter's Companions (http://ccmonthlychallenge.blogspot.com/) have a challenge running called 'Love is in the Air'. When I came across it I immediately thought of entering this card. There's loads of people entering this challenge so I guess my chances are slim...

By the way: Proficiat means Congratulations, but you had probably gathered that.

Yesterday I finally got around to making the wobbler card for our card swap. I say our, because I am involved in organising, from a facebook group called 'We like Card Swaps'. Come and have a look and join us if you like. There is no pressure or commitment, you join in when you want to. We have a monthly swap for adults, where we alternate styles and themes, and one for children with themes only. We are also very proud of the fact that we are an international group!

Then I thought, I wonder if I could meet the Crafty Bloggers Network (http://craftybloggersnetwork.blogspot.com/) requirements for their challenge this month. Their theme is monochromatic, and I think I managed to stick to how they discribe what they meant by that. So this will be my first ever entry into a blog challenge! Fingers crossed.

As I was looking around I saw another challenge, which I thought I could aim for with the same card. The glitter geeks (http://glittergeeks.blogspot.com/) want to see cards with more than one image on. I think I fulfilled that too. They also had very few entries last month, so I felt it was important to make the effort and support what they are doing.

Hopefully this will be the start of a long run of different challenges to enter. We'll see if this is any good first... Please do leave me a comment, and let me know what you think.
