Afternoon everyone. :) Just checking in between eating dinner and colouring. Thought I'd share a picture of my Grandmas birthday card. She was 81 on Saturday just gone! <3 Love that woman. She's lucky enough to still have all of her marbles, although she has disability issues she still plods on.

I've used some yummy papers from First Edition Bird Song - I LOVE pink and green together. I don't know what it is.. but I kinda struggle to use pink any other time - pair it with green and it's easy peasy! :) I've kept the layout super simple. I've used the last of my pink twill stripe ribbon from TRG - best get another order placed soon, huh? - aswell as a cute little button from SU! I've trimmed the mini tags from the patterned paper and adhered them under the bow.

The 'Grandma' has been pieced together using letter stamps from Lawn Fawn and stamped in Soft Suede ink. The cameo from WaltzingMouse has been stamped in Pretty in Pink and the border in Crumb Cake. Lovely :) I've used Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzaz cardstock from SU! for my cardbase and layering. Job done.

Seems to me like I took the right week off work - it's been jam packed from the word go! Monday was Durham. Tuesday was pictures with the boy to see Hunger Games then my Darts Presentation Night. Today I'ma be catching up with orders, DT work and making a start on my friends baby book. Thursday is a house warming/ birthday party. Friday is Edinburgh!! Here was me looking forward to a lie in or two!! LOL.

A few pictures to share with ya..

Durham. :) Beautiful little city. 

Hope you guys enjoy your day. I'm off to finish my sandwich and make another coffee.

No rest for the wicked.
