It's party time!!

First apologises  to you because Sunday l was suppose to have my Grand daughter for a stay over but things didn't go to plan and l got lots of wishes from you ........ Mummy and Daddy had other plans!! and it worked better in our favour because we now have Tayla for two sleep overs while Mummy and Daddy take a well earned break so l might be missing for a few days from blogging l have also been Commissioned to do two cards for my sisters FIL who will be celebrating his 80th birthday l find male cards not that easy but trawling through my stash l came across some Lotv Pre-Coloured images which l think might just do the job so l'll need to get cracking on them as they are needed for Friday l'll show you after his B'day which is Saturday here is a card l made yesterday
