Black, white & one other with Lexi's Creations!

Morning lovely crafters....hope you're all well & looking forward
to the week! My little lovely, Miss Rebecca, starts her SATS
exams today.....oh my, you wouldn't believe the pressure she feels
under and the amount of revision she's had......and she's only 10!
It's her 11th birthday on Thursday so at least that's something for
 her to look forward to......and we get to eat cake lol!
So today we have a new challenge over at Lexi's Creations
and this time the theme is BLACK, WHITE & a bit of one OTHER!
A nice, easy challenge, right? And don't can make
any craft project you like just so  long as it fits the theme!

  2. Good morning sweetie, this is a gorgeous creation as always huggles Pops x x x

  3. Absolutely gorgeous card! The topper is fabulous and I love the layout. The pop of red is perfect! Good luck to Miss Rebecca for her SATS, I am sure she will do really well! xx

  4. love your card Jo - so sophisticated! I can't believe how much pressure the schools put on for SATS - from a teachers persective they're not that good but I know that they are a benchmark that schools can use - but at 10 or 11 - I think its madness! Thanks for the heads up on her birthday - I'll search out a suitable card and pop it in the post!!! Big Hugs for Rebecca - and for you xx

  5. This is gorgeous Jo. I love the image and the black/white and red is so striking. Fab design also.

  7. Gorgeous card Jo. I love the stylish image and wonderful colours.
    I do feel for your daughter taking her SATS this week, I remember how my children felt when they took them. I think it is so unfair putting them under so much pressure at such a young age.
    Anyway, I wish her all the best and it's good she has her birthday to look forward to.
    hugs Sue xx
