Wishing you a slice of happy!

Another week begins and I wish you all a slice of happy,

As many of you know I love to play along with the challenges at Fusion but to be honest the latest one stumped me and I nearly gave up. I got caught up with the ties and red polka dot. I had been thinking about it for over a week. a Then yesterday I decided I would enlarge the photo and look closely at the patterns on the ties (not the red polka dot!). I finally had a ping moment and decided to make a card this is specific...on the right hand side of the plaid bow tie!

And here it is:

I tired to copy the pattern as close as I could and then thought this sentiment was perfect for it. I was so pleased when I came up with this idea as creating this pattern was a new thing for me, yet so easy to do by following the photo. Plus once I got the idea it came together really quickly (even though it took forever to get an idea!)

This card is going to a neighbour who celebrates his Birthday in a few weeks.

Here is Fusion's inspiration

I will also enter it into the 'masculine' challenge at Just Us Girls

Have a fun week x
