Well..... I had to delete some old posts coz I ran out of space on pisaco !!!!! really did not want to, but did not want to shell out money for more space !

Todays card is a commisioned one.
The requirments were - Pink &; girly, hearts &; to have "bum chums for life" somewhere on the card and lastly to have her age (25) on the card too.
