New Challenge "TIME"

Hi Friends,

       Well what a terrible start i have had to this week, first my 2 babys have come down with the most horrendous coughs,colds and tummy bugs ever, after 2 days of the sicky's, Coughing and spluttering and sneezing louder than my Dad, (which i guarentee is that loud, u think your under attack!) the girls are finally starting to feel normal again.
     Then my lovely neighbour found her poor little dog had died, she had been blessed with her for 13 wonderful years and had the most cutest little face, She was a Minuture Yorkie and although she was 13 everyone thought she was still a pup.. R.I.P My little Mitsee...
   Then i go the bank this afternoon to find no money, after ringing up i find that the sick note i sent 9 days ago has still not arrived, Where on earth its got too i dont know, so now i have to wait till it arrives, grr..

I used some Sweet Moments papers from a Magazine Freebie,
Magnolia Fence die and some Little roses.
I cut the fence and hinged it so they pop open and added
cute little Ladybugs.

For the inside i added more of the papers,Then added a computer
sentiment and a smaller image in the corner.

This is a side view of my card, see how the little fence pops out like a gate.
And this is my Tag the sentiment matches part of the sentiment in the card, which reads
"Friends are like good jeans
One good one
Is better than ten bad ones"
