Morning all

Hi everyone, Hope you had a nice weekend ! l would have liked a bit more time to craft, but family life takes priority.Amanda has tons of exams these coming weeks so gave her a helping hand with revision..Its her birthday on Wednesday, she will be 17, how time flies .....She wants to go to see Justin Beiber the pop star, in concert. He will be appearing in Birmingham next march, his first UK tour dates, ( apparently ).She has pleaded with me, and said she doesnt want anything else for her birthday or christmas,she just wants to see him !!! l can't really say much as l must of been one the 'Bay City Rollers ' top ten fans heheehe.....So we spent yesterday looking for tickets and flights from here to Birmingham..very difficult in march as there are no flights from here..Will try to get it all done by today, so l can put all the details inside her birthday card ! Now on to my card .... Today , l have made this little card for my spanish neighbour. l have said that spanish people are not really into the 'card ' sending , but she expects it now, even though all she does is put it back into the envelope and then into a drawer !! hehe.. Over at Bah!Humbug!, the theme is ' Lovely in Lilac ' so l will enter this card in their challenge... wishing you al a nice day..Hugs Susan x

Two types of gold mirri card were used for matting. The 'snowflake' corner punch is from X Cut...Challenges l am entering with this card are ....Bah!Humbug!, The theme this week is ' Presents '.Over at OSAAT, the theme is 'Christmas'.Creative Card Crew have a theme of 'Lets Punch it '..Over at Top Tip Tuesday the theme is ' Christmas ' Take a look over at Stamping Vacation, The theme there is 'Lots of Paper '....
