Back to normal

Well I'm back to the normal routine here ... my dear Aunt is back home ... we drove to Lincoln yesterday laden with far more than she came with ... 
It was Mothers Day here in the UK so we got to spend the day together and my home and hers is full of flowers and chocolates ... I missed seeing her smiling face this morning but it wont be long before we are together again for the Norwegian cruise ... Right now she will be playing with her newest toy ... an Apple iPad! One is never too old to learn right?

I got to do a little crafting whilst she was playing ... and I made my card for the challenge at Jingle Belles  - 'Neutral Noel' which is based on this photo of beautiful cushions ... 


I was going to make a card with a wreath but Stephanie already did a brilliant take on that ... so in the end it's kind of a mix


The image is recycled from an old shop bought card and the leaves are cut on the Silhouette Cameo...


The music paper is from a fabulous pack of papers I got from the Hobby Shop ... there are 100 sheets of 12'x12' papers in the pack and they are so lovely ... by Grace Taylor ... Guaranteed you will be seeing a lot of them in the future!

I'm off to visit my friend this morning ... we've a lot of catching up to do ... then I will be catching up with all your blogs ... 

 "Thank you" for all your lovely wishes for my Aunt's birthday ... she was tickled pink!
I'll be back tomorrow for the CCCB challenge ... 
Have a lovely day
