Thank You!

Hi All

I wanted to Thank you for your wonderful cards that you sent me for my Birthday. My lounge is blooming with all your creativity. I was a very happy girl (well old lady!)-thank you so much.

Not only did I get cards but my very dear friend Nonni organised many of you to send me crafty kits full of the most wonderful goodies. I have 15 kits overflowing! There are so many I haven't even had time to look through them all. But a huge thank you, I have enough crafty goodies to enjoy for a long time.

And a very special thank you to Nonni for organising this xx

Here is one card I made yesterday using some goodies from these packs:

I followed the sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch and was inspired by the gorgeous purple flowers in the photo at Inspired by Little Things

I also want to enter this into the new challenge at CAS-ual Fridays-this challenge is all about making an encouragement card-something we all need sometimes. I have used the colours and the flowers as inspiration.

Before I leave I wanted to give you all a smile with a look at the Birthday card my hubby gave me. He hunts card shops for CAS cards and I have to say this card really made me laugh-is this not the most CAS card you have ever seen? And I am definitely going it CASE it!

I have trained him well!

Have a good day x
