Pretty cards (for a change)!

Hi everyone. A big welcome to my new visitors and a thank you to all of those who visit regularly.

This week saw the 40th birthday of one of my closest friends so I decided I needed to make a pretty card for her, using the Craftwork Cards Floral Chalkboard collection. In the end I made two- and gave her a special card from my stash instead! I did enjoy making something pretty though.

I think I prefer the top card with the extra square layer added and will be using this layout a lot.

Today we are off to London to watch three evenings of athletics at the World Championships. Before we had children, we spent many summer holidays attending championships in countries like Canada and Finland. This time we are taking the children and they are very excited to be watching Mo Farah and Usain Bolt run. We will be fitting some sightseeing in too, with trips to the Natural History Museum and Hampton Court Palace planned. See you when I get back! Cathy x
