First birthday card

I'm back!, we had a lovely holiday, the accommodation was perfect with all the facilities we needed for Meg, and the hot tub was pure heaven, I think I was in it nearly every night!
While on holiday we travelled over to Yorkshire and met up with my lovely blogging buddy Christine, it was such a joy to finally meet up and we chatted for England, the time just flew by, our poor husbands and Meg barely got a word in LOL!

Meg is off to respite this Friday, which is also my birthday, in the evening we are heading into Liverpool town centre to see my Grandson Will as the Mad Hatter, he's part of the Huyton Children's theatre group and they are performing Alice in Wonderland as part of the Liverpool Light Nights event, then Eric and I are going to Wales for a few days on Saturday for a proper break, as although we have a lovely holiday with Meg we still have all her needs to take care of so when she is in respite we can have a lovely relaxed break.

I haven't had chance to get back into my card making properly since we got back but I am hoping to get some work done this week before we go away again at the weekend. I do have some cards made that haven't yet been blogged, including some magazine work, so at least there is something to put on the blog.

This card was a last minute request from my sister-in-laws friend, so for quickness I printed off the decoupage and papers from the Bebunni Baby Collection CD from Crafters Companion.

Thanks for popping in and taking a look,

Wow..... that's a last minute card???? OMG I'm in awe!! Love the decoupage and no doubt the recipient will love it too!

It was so lovely to meet up last week - I had a sore throat on the way home as we'd talked so much - but oh, I did enjoy it!! And I've been playing with photoshop.... you'd be proud!

Hope you and Eric have a lovely few days away.... and Meg enjoys the respite too.... maybe she needs it to get away from the card chat!! hehe! No doubt she'll enjoy the wifi there too!

Big hugs
Christine x
PS... When you're back...... I'm going to pick your brains on how to colour images in photoshop... I've managed the gradient... and even created an underwater paper... but the colouring escapes me as yet! One day I'll have time to sit down and concentrate!

Uh oh.... I talked to much again... x
