Sneaks In Under The Wire....

Firstly can I say, welcome to my new followers. Lovely to have you aboard :)

Well, we're off to Ali's Island again today. The boys are super excited about the whole thing (and we're taking Daddy this time too) as am I. 

That's the first week of school over and we seem to have come through it unscathed which is always a good thing.

So the fact that we will be in Cathy's company might mean that this card escapes her notice entirely as you know how much both us like this particular colour. Ali loves it though, it's just a pity I had already given her her birthday card!!

I made this because I said I couldn't. And I do love a challenge.... ish ;) It's Cupcake Craft's birthday and when I saw the photo inspiration I thought there's no way I can do that, there's **** in it. Sandra entered and when I commented I said that I couldn't and she text me to say that there was no reason I couldn't go with the cake as the inspiration rather than the colour.  

Tiddly Inks were having a sale the other day and I saw this little cutie so I decided to have her and coloured her round at Cass' last night. I didn't start off with the intention of doing her **** but Cass had these papers in her stash which I thought went very well with the challenge and the image!
