We're Playing BINGO at Papertake Weekly

Good afternoon my lovely crafty friends.
I'm a little late with my DT make for 

where this week the theme  is 


And the reason I'm late is I have been busy this morning taking delivery of our lush new electronic recliner leather sofas - and now I'm sat in sheer comfort typing up my post :o)

So without any further ado here's my make using the diagonal line 'buttons, free and flowers

I actually made this card quite a while ago as a request from my friend for her cousin's daughter to celebrate being a big sister - I thought the image was just perfect. When I showed her the finished card - she burst into tears - then said she absolutely loved it - I must admit I was a little worried when she started crying - but thankfully they were tears of joy!!!
