A Card for a Friend

It's absolutely ages since I have posted anything.  I have, however been busy making birthday cards for friends.  The original design of which I have stuck to in order to make a pretty and simple card.  They have been inspired by a card a friend made for me and so I do not consider these my own design because I used the idea.  Even though every card is different.  I decided today to post one of these to keep in touch with my blog but hope to 'take off' again soon.

Tilda - Just For You

This card is for my daughters upcoming birthday - I thought the serious face on Tilda quite appropriate as I am often teasing Alison about her serious face - it is a light hearted comment on that.

What one can't live without

Isn't this a brilliant Christmas prezzie - a vacuum cleaner for my desk.  How great is this for all the glitter and tiny pieces, bought for me by daughter and partner.
