What a couple of weeks


What with family events, coughs and colds and generally feeling miserable and sorry for myself I have finally done something a little bit creative. It has been so frustrating wanting to do different things, but just not having the energy to do it. Hopefully now it is full steam ahead and plenty of projects finished.

This card I've entered into the Polka Doodles Challenge - Party Time and I've used the Paper Boutique vol 3 cd.

I love the colour of the parcels and printed them out in two different sizes and decoupaged them. Unfortunately the picture doesn't show that I've also glittered the polka dots. There are plenty of sentiments on the cd and I chose the Happy Birthday and decorated with a flower made from a spare piece of matching card from the parcels and sparkled the centre. I finally finshed with faux stitching round the outside of the card (I am finding this very difficult not to do on all my cards now).

Now to crack on with everything else that needs to be done.
