Birthday Card

Gosh I didn't realise how long I had been away.  It started with my laptop dying on me and when I finally got it back I have had a real time of it with blogger then on top of that my mojo had gone walkabout.

I am really getting frustrated with Internet Explorer and blogger as there are so many lovely blogs that I love to visit and am not able to, a couple being Juls at The Glitter Chick and Pinky at Pinky's World.  Every time I visit my computer goes so slow but if I try and leave a comment my computer jams up.  So if you are both reading this I just want you to know that even though I can't comment I still love to see all you fabulous creations.

Even though my mojo has been missing I have still had to get some commissions done and will post them as soon as the events have passed but in the meantime I thought I would share one with you that I made for my mum for her birthday tomorrow.  I used this digi image from Crafts & Me which I think is absolutely gorgeous and is so reasonable at £2.00.

And now I am off to bed as I am shattered tonight, it has been a looooonnnnng week but hey a new one starts tomorrow lol.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
