Lexi's Creations #69 - For a Friend

Morning  everyone, hope you're all well!
Wow, it's good to be back.......2 weeks of sickness has taken it's toll on our family but it's
Monday, kids are all feeling fine and I'm excited to be crafting again!
Let's hope it brings some nice weather with it! 
It also brings a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and this fortnight the theme
is "For a friend". As you know, we are a multi crafts blog so would love to see your cards,
tags, bookmarks, ATC's.........anything crafty so long as it fits the theme!
You have until July 21st to play and you never could be the lucky winner
of this fortnights' fantastic prize......5 digis from Fairy Dust Crafts!
That's a great'll be spoilt for choice!
I chose to make a card in Serif this time and wow, I'm seriously becoming addicted!
While I still prefer "real" paper, ribbons, etc., Serif definitely has a place in my
craft room! The possibilities are endless! I used a sentiment from Fairy Dust Crafts then printed my card out and mounted it on a scallop edge card and for a first go I'm real pleased with it!
Don't forget to pop over to the main challenge blog to check out the gorgeous makes created
 by our fabby DT led by our lovely Susan......they're a fantastic team
and I love being part of it!
Well, that's it from me today, thanks for looking and hope your
days' a good one!
