Happy 21st Hannah

What a beautiful day we have had today - the sun was shining very cold but gorgeous.
I'm suffering with Bronchitis again - think it's due to walking in the damp last week 
and it's got on my chest :0(
Lewis and Eleanor were off school yesterday, a teacher's inset day, so we took them into Manchester watched the new Sandra Bullock movie 'Gravity' at the iMax in 3D - it's the closest I'm ever going to get to going into space - crikey I felt like we were there !!!
We went out for dinner and then had a mooch round the Christmas markets - it was a lovely day and made me realise how much I'd enjoy a 3 day weekend every week !!!

Okay - onto my card - yet a new embossing folder.....and some stunnalicious Kanban glitter card - did I tell you how stunning it is......gorgeous.
Winestool Nikki looks beautiful in green - love it !!




Thank you so much for stopping by.....

For you......


I was asked to make a card by the daughter of the lady who we
 bought our two Burmese cats from and she wanted a cute cat on it...
..don't think I could get much cuter than this image from Digistamp Boutique.
The lilac and lemon DP are perfect for this card and Anne-Marie was  
delighted with the card for her Mum.

Mid-Challenge Reminder

Good Morning

I have used Jug & Vase Delight which is brilliant for those quick and
 easy cards that we find ourselves having to make :0)
I recently purchased a few new embossing folders which are 8"x8" , A4s or 6"x6" - 
they are fabulous for doing the whole card.
