Hello everyone.

Well, it's been a week.  Whilst dismantling my daughter's wardrobes in preparation for her new carpet to be laid, my hubby managed to break them.  So it was a mercy dash to Ikea for new wardrobes and of course we had to get matching bedside and chest of drawers... Arrrrghhhhh!.  He's been very stressed this week, bless!!  But don't feel too sorry for him, he's just gone off on a boy's photography holiday to Sardinia for a week.  YUP!!  Not feeling so sorry for him now are you.

Meanwhile, I'm having a very stressful week.  We are about to switch to new system at work, so everything had to be brought up to date on the old system before we switch on Wednesday.  It's been very busy.  Luckily I'm only working three days this week.  Roll on Wednesday!!

My card today is for my friend Sarah's birthday which is today.  Happy Birthday Sarah.  I've used SaturatedCanary's  Springtime.  She's been coloured with copics.  The papers are Dovecraft's Garden Party.  The flowers are made using Hearfelt Creations 'Vintage Floret' and some Magnolia Berries and some Martha Stewart's Branch punch.  I used Spellbinders Oval and Floral Oval dies.  For whatever reason, I'm not totally thrilled with this card - just not sure about it!!  Sorry, the picture looks a little washed out, the light was rubbish.

I'd like to enter this card I the following challenges:
Thank you for taking the time to stop by today, take care and hopefully have a lovely warm weekend. xoxo

Birthday Girl

Morning my lovelies

Hope everyone is well and enjoyed the weather this weekend.

Well, the decorating is finally finished, now we just have to go and pick the new carpet!!

I have been a very lucky girl this week.  I was lucky enough to win Squirrel's surprise candy.  It was fabulous, thank you sooooo much Squirrel.  I love everything in it.  So, today's card has been made using some of the bits I got in the candy.

The stamp is Wild Rose Studio's Birthday Girl (from candy), isn't she cute?  She's been coloured with copics.  The papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics III (from candy).  I used a spellbinder edgeability die, Dienamics Fishtail Banner and some lace from Live and Love Crafts.  The "Wish" sentiment is one of many I have in a box that I have no idea where I got.  The little crystal is from my stash.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and visit.  I hope you all have a fantastic week.  xoxo

Lolly and her Brolly

Hello my lovelies.  I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and haven't eaten too much chocolate.

Well, the decorator arrived to start work on our stairs and bedroom this week.  Oooooh, can't wait for it to all be finished.  My new cooker and dining suite also arrived too.  All very exciting.  My husband did ask if he would be coming home to a lovely home-cooked meal.  I told him it wasn't likely, as I thought of the new cooker as more of an ornament for the kitchen than an actual appliance!!!

Today I have a card I made for my friend Anita's birthday.  I've used Stamping Bella's Lolly and her Brolly.  She's been coloured with copics.  I made the double bow out of some pink seam binding I had and added the beautiful pearl and crystal embellishment which I got from Imagine DIY.  The clouds are a Memory Box die.

Thank you soooo much for taking the time to take a look at my blog today.  xoxo
