...happy Saturday to you all - well the weather here doesnt know whether to rain or shine - one minute its beautiful sunshine next its pouring down :-(.  While its raining I thought I'd do a quick blog post.

Since my last post I've had a birthday - and a lovely one to, I received some lovely cards and gifts and I'll hopefully blog about them in a seperate post later, maybe with a bit of a stitchy update too as I havent done one about my cross-stitch for ages!!

Heres, my latest card make for Toms teacher - he's found out it's her birthday on Monday and asked if I'd make her a card.  Luckily I'd bought a stamp from Vixx and I thought it would be perfect for this card:

I have coloured the image with promarkers and added glossy accents to her glasses.  The papers I think are Basic grey matted onto green card - then I have added a craftwork cards sentiment and flower/card candy from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:
