Busy week.............


Phew, I am cream crackered what a  busy week at work and a busy weekend too!!   I have been naughty (I think) and  taken over Jamie's bedroom as I have totally outgrown my cupboard!  I spent all of yesterday and most of today sorting out my stash and moving it all upstairs.  Got tons of room now, really it could do with a coat of paint and some shelving but it will do for now.  We have left the bed and wardrobe in there so Jamie can still use it when he comes home and if for some reason he needs to move back home we can soon change it back to a bedroom!! We also had family staying with us last week which was lovely but of course I did not have time to visit anyone so hopefully I will catch up soon.  My laptop has finally given up the ghost too so now I have to use hubbies which is ok but not quite the same as having your own!!!

I sneaked in a card today though and I have been wanting to use this digi since I saw it a few weeks back, such a pretty image.........

Stamp - Pearls in my hair - D for Daisies

Have a lovely evening!

What a gorgeous card! I love that ADFD image and your colouring is just lovely - especially the way the light catches her hair.

Love the warm pink colour scheme of this card too, and the lovely flourish and that gorgeous big sparkly chiffon bow! :)
