Thank You!

Hello!! It's a beautiful sunny day here in Manchester UK!  lovely to see the sunshine again after all those dull days! I hope you are all well today.... but I know there are some nasty bugs going around at the moment... so if you are unwell, then I'm sending huge hugs and hope that you are feeling better very soon. 

My daughter commissioned a Thank You Card recently. This was a really quick make, but love how it came out! I've used a Pre-Coloured Image called 'Dahlias' by Pink Gem Designs. And I've added my own sentiment before printing out.

Image: PRE-COLOURED 'Dahlias' by Pink Gem Designs.
Paper: Prima 'Meadow Lark'
Pearls: Hobby House
Sentiment: Computer Generated

As I say, it was very quick card... but my daughter was pleased with it! :-)

I've started my online Christmas Shopping... ordered my 2015 Calendars and a few pressies for family. Also noticed that Mr Kipling's 'Festive' range is now out! So I am ordering different cakes each week... I have to start sampling them early to see which I like best for Christmas! :-0  that's my excuse anyway! ;-) Lol

Thanks so much for visiting! I will catch up with you soon!
Love and hugs!
