Happy 18th Jill

My cards today are like buses - none show up for ages, then 3 in close succession! It wasn't quite planned like this, but after my drop in production over the last few weeks, things were beginning to mount up and I felt I needed to clear the decks before we go off on holiday in July.

This card was requested last night by my son Alan who has a number of friends turning 18 this year. This one though is special as it's for Jill, a little girl he first met in playgroup. They then drifted apart as they went to different primary schools, but they then met up again in secondary and were in the same friends group. Jill is a lovely girl & I hope she likes her card - probably more than the photo I'm about to post with it!


Here they both are at playgroup, many years ago!

Jill is back left, behind the girl, (Rachel) in the red jumper!

My my Mrs you are on a roll! I love the Theodore card, it looks great in blue, really impressed with your Christmas card production line too - puts my one to shame!
and this is a little cutie - bit like your Alan in that photo! I recognise him with that toothpaste ad smile but which one is Jill?
HOpe you're going somewhere nice on your hollies especially somewhere dry!
