Happy Birthday to you

Both DH and DD2 celebrated their birthdays last week, September is an expensive month in the Scruff's household!. DH had his on Friday and I finally finished his cards on Thursday evening (as you do!!)Backing papers are a mix of K & Co mat stacks and Love Elsie and all apart from the Love Elsie paper were from my left overs box. It appears to be going down ever so slowly :)

My baby, DD2, was 15 on Sunday! here are her cards :)

She is always telling us that when she gets married she wants a Jordan style wedding *gasp*, the more pink and blingy the better, so I tried to reflect this in her card............and succeeded, she loved it! LOL Oh and as well as loving all things pink and girly, she also loves.......................Spongebob Squarepants!!! I'm hoping it's a passing phase, I can't somehow see me organising a Spongebob wedding :))

This time all papers again were from 'the box' and everything else was from my stash. The photos on both cards are scans of labels from various items of clothing, bedding etc.

I posted off another box of cards to Emma yesterday for the Forces Appeal My mum brought over 35 cards and I made another 41 and just ran out of inspiration! I sent 121 last week (cos I can't count :)) which totalled 19 and meant to make the number up to 200.............and forgot. After the parcel was posted I came back into my craft room to do some more work and the final three cards were still on my desk. What a muppet!! I will post them on though the next time I go to the PO.

And that is it for now. I'm waiting for the nice repair man to come and fix the dishwasher, washing up in the sink sucks..........but then again, so does life in general at the moment.

Take care and enjoy your day.
