penny black saturday for the girls

hi all so dreary here today and my day gone to pot a little, full of intentions of making loads of cards made one, and then this afternoon me and adam were having a snuggle and was us asleep on the sofa for 2 hours argghhh and there is nothing worse than waking in the dark so makes you feel worse and not got a dead arm from where adam was so hopefully typing will make it work lol.

This card is for penny black saturday challenge where it has to be a girly card and i think this fits in perfectly, my penny black image was coloured in with H20's and pink stickles, mounted and stacked using my nesties. also used ivory shimmer card ran through the cuttlebug using the snowflake folder. my pink christmas backing paper is from stash, added a pink bow and used my MS doily punch as well.

adam's birthday and not again!!

Morning all, an update this end and i'm so gutted again adam off school poorly got sent home yesterday off to docs who say ear infection throat infection etc, but he also showing very similar symptoms to when he had swine flu so i really don't know just so so sad for him to be honest that he is suffering so much this winter and that his PKU obiously plays a big part in his immune system.
On a good note he was still well for his birthday and enjoyed himself he loved his surprise present of a new bike i got from E-Bay for £10.50 absolute bargain and in fabby condition. His cake on the other hand was a bit of a bodge job though lol even got diagnosed as looking like a hoovercraft!!!! haha. well here are a few photos of the birthday boy and his card i made him love you all loads xx
