The girls & I enjoying a well deserved £100 bottle of Vintage Dom Perignon later that evening....

 I can't thank Kate, Caryn & Aimes enough for all their hard work & for being the most amazingly fun girls to be with - it was an absolute joy from start to end.  As a thank you, I treated them to a showing of New Moon in the Gallery at Bluewater on Sunday.

I couldn't have asked for a better bunch of people to share a crafty afternoon with - thank you all for making the day so enjoyable for me & also for the many (many) unexpected gifts & cards x

Just Because

I enjoyed making this card because I absolutely adore the papers & the image was a pleasure to colour....

Hubby wants to visit New York between Christmas & New Year but the thought of being so far away from the children makes me very anxious & I genuinely don't think I'm capable of going....quite bizzare because I don't particularly like them most of the time ;) x
