My 2017 Christmas Card Tally

2 October 2011

Birthday Girl

Evening everyone, hope you have all had a fabby weekend and enjoyed the gorgeous weather.

Firstly I am astounded to be at 200 followers which means, as promised I will now be having some candy to celebrate.  I will post something in the next few days, so keep your eyes open LOL.  Thank you to my new followers and welcome on board.

Secondly, I wanted to share the gift that my Sister bought me for making her wedding stationery, it's a wedding bell charm for my Pandora bracelet and it's absolutely gorgeous and I am so thrilled with it.

And finally onto my card, which I have made this afternoon for my Step Daughter Danielle's Birthday which is on Wednesday.  Luckily she doesn't look at my blog LOL.
