Got my Ipod on play

Hi all,

Blimey cant believe I have managed a post every day this week, no such luck week though I'm sure as Rich is off work so me and Ab's wont be able to have another weekend craft session. Thought I would show you a card today that I made ages ago. Its not been blogged before but I happened to come across it whilst sorting my photos out today. The card was made for Oli in Oct for his birthday from Abbie. The image was downloaded from an online colouring page (precious moments) and was just perfect for his card. I kept the card pretty simple with minimum fuss and used bold colours and patterns.

Thanks for popping by today, will be back tomorrow with my sketch for LORA Crafts.

Birthday Wishes

Hi All,

Bet you didnt expect me back this soon, going by my track record lol!!!, well I had a day off yesterday so managed to get a couple more cards made yay!!. Not after having a bit of a day though, Oli had been moaning about tooth ache so I manged to get him into the dentist, well to cut a long story short the tooth had to be pulled. One very unhappy & upset boy came out of that dentist, I tell you its a wonder you didnt hear the scream, but all's better now and no more tooth ache for him.

So my card today uses - guess !!!! yes another the fabulous LOTV Cute Square, this time I have teamed the fabby little fairy with the gorgeous Pink Petticoat paper pack that came FREE with this months Quick Cards Made Easy !!, very pretty designs although the paper seems a bit thin, but still very lovely.
