Sorry I haven't been about much over the Bank Holiday - I've been having some fun time with my family; we managed a barbie on Sunday and then it was my Mum's birthday yesterday.
In fact, with all the activities over the past couple of days I completely forgot that my friend texted me on Friday asking me to make a card for a baby girl. She needed it for today as she's visiting her friend tonight in hospital. Lucky for me I did remember last night at about 7.30pm!! So I frantically set to work creating this card - I hadn't kept the text message but I remembered reading that the baby was being named Olivia and so decided it would be nice to personalise the card. Hmmmmmm, well I thought it was a good idea........ until I got into work this morning and showed the completed card to my friend. She looked a little bit bemused to say the least!!! Then she told me she thought the card was just perfect...... except for one thing...... THE BABY'S NAME IS SOPHIE!!!!!! PMSL!!!! Where on earth did I get Olivia from then, lol?! Too late to make another card now so she'll have to buy one this time I'm afraid. I'll just have to hope that someone I know has a baby girl named Olivia in the future, hee hee!
I thought I might enter my card into the Charisma Cardz challenge this week - at least it gives it a reason to exist, lol! The theme is flowers, lace and pearls - YUM, great brief in my book.

Have a great day and I hope to catch up with you here and there as I sneak some mini blog hops during my working day, hee hee!
Cardmaking is my passion and I love sharing tips and ideas with other talented crafters. I wake up with ideas buzzing around in my head and go to sleep the same way. My family think I'm bonkers but that's fine by me. I have an ever-growing wishlist, made worse by all the wonderful cards I see when hopping around on a daily basis. I have made some wonderful friends through my hobby, long may it continue!!
