Twice in three days!

What a busy weekend!!!

We had our 6 yr old neice for her first sleepover on fri night... such a cutie!... such a wriggler! I slept most of the night with her bum under my chin and her feet on my knees! hehehehe.....

We were very busy, playing on the park, making cookies, car booting (where she bought books! :) ) and making jelly at 8am on saturday morning!

Anyway - Sunday was a bit quieter...

It was our 5 yr anniversary. My lovely Hubby surprised me with a gorgeous bunch of roses - I never get flowers, so it was a lovely surprise. I made him the card below, using a digi set I have had a while. I have started to use these digi sets quite a lot now, as they are sooo easy to use! I decoupaged the frame and put glossy accents on the stitches and the buttons. He liked it :)

On the same day, it was also my friends birthday. And what a coincidence.... Hubby and I were at a boot sale in the morning, and i couldnt believe it when i saw a bigshot...the black and pink model, boxed, as new (used once by look of cutting plates), and only £30!!! Now,I knew that my friend, whose birthday it was, liked my big shot, so I text her to come and see it. 2 hours later, we were passing the same carboot again, and I hadn't heard from my friend so I thought we'd drop in and see if it was still there. It was! I called my friend as it was almost 10am by now and she was on the other side of the bootsale looking for the stall! I held onto the bigshot till she arrived and haggled the stallholder down to £25. It made my day that she got such a bargain! (and she is absolutely thrilled with it!!)

Anyway - below, is the card I made for her...and she loved it! Again, the image is a digi image. The backing (gold) paper is from pink petticoat. I used glossy accents on the main word "live".
