I'm Back!

I'm back, I think!  Please excuse my absence and my lack of commenting over the past week. In my defense, it was my birthday last week and I knew I had a couple of nights out planned, but I wasn't expecting to be out every night except Monday. Not good at my age, I'm pooped!
A big thank you to all my lovely friends for making my birthday a special day, I was well and truly spoiled.

Not being at home also meant I've not made any cards, and I needed a card in a hurry. Of course, being pooped also meant that everything I've done today I've done twice as I messed it up the 1st time.
List of Goodies:
Image is Stamping Bella, DP is Bella Bvd - Honey I'm Home from The Hobby House as are the pearls,
flowers are Prima, and she's coloured with DI's. That's about it. I'm off to catch up with what you've all been up to in blog land.
I'll be back midweek with the candy winners.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx

  11. I know what you mean about doing things twice!! And with that beautiful checked paper I love how straightly cut it is & lined up with the image panel. The red flowers pick out the flower in the paper so well too - thanks for more eye candy tonight, it was rest for my sore eyes after redoing umpteen image background panels!!!! Take care & rest.
    Much love & belated birthday wishes
