Happy Weekend everyone! The sun is shining & it feels like summer again here - hooray.  Today I'm blogging a card I made for my MIL's birthday which was last week (actually the same day as my eldest son's 30th birthday! - & in July we celebrated my other son's 28th birthday & my FIL's which are also on the same day!) so lots of celebrating going on :o)  For this card I used a pre-coloured image from Lili of the Valley (for quickness, not much free time lately), papers from my stash, lace, flowers & a die cut cupcake border.

A Little Reminder...

Hello everyone, I hope you're enjoying the summer.  I've haven't had much time for blogging cos work has been very stressful with the new computer change & for some unexplained reason it is busier than it has ever been in the 14 years I've worked there. We've also had our son & 3 grandchildren staying so there was definitely no spare time for crafting or anything else lol.  

So this is just a quick reminder that the All Dressed Up challenge is back from it's summer break on 15th August & if you would like to join in but don't have any images yet you can "try before you buy" with their fab freebies which you can find HERE. This cute fella below is a freebie & I've had him coloured for a while but haven't had chance to make him into a card.

sorry the photo's not great it was it was taken quickly with my phone
