Birthday card for a friend.......





























Hiya folks!

Yaaaaaay! I'm managing to upload a card at long last!! We now have internet connection again after having troubles for best part of a week, but unfortunately I still have no access to Blogger or my Google account through the home PC. Dear hubster has kindly allowed me on his precious laptop to upload this card today - looks like I'll have to do major grovelling to get this privilege, lol!

I made this card for my matey Katy, for her birthday this Monday just gone and thought I'd go for something cheery and bright instead of the usual flowery. I had great fun with the fab Alota image sent to me by the lovely Chris and used papers from the yummy Basic Grey Lime Rickey range.

Sorry the post is short tonight but I'm being timed on the laptop......... yes really!!! He had it as a 40th pressie from his Mum and Dad because I was always hogging our pc, so he's feeling a bit of deja vue, hee hee!

I'll be back after tea for a long overdue blog hop - it's great to be back ;o)
