Gosh…what a week it has been! I can’t believe all of the things that have happened the past week and it’s been a bit of a roller coaster. Not to mention the non stop rain at the moment! So…what do you do when it’s raining and you need to de-stress after a difficult week? Craft of course!
I’ve made a few items this weekend and I’ll share them over the next few days. The first is the birthday card below I made for my son’s gorgeous friend who turned 16 on the 29th. She is like a daughter to me so I wanted to create something especially for her. We tend to share our birthdays each year because mine is the 28th so it was nice that she could have her own day for this very special birthday. Mine was a big one too this year. 40 – I can’t believe it! Where does the time go?
