Friends and Birthdays

Hi there!
I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend ... I have no idea where this week went to and how it's suddenly friday again...

Yesterday my lovely blog buddy Keren came round ... bearing gifts and her usual pretty smile ... And we had a fun few hours together chatting and laughing ...
Those these photos don't really do it justice ... this is a lovely Handmade tote bag she gave me ...


Beautiful fabric in such lush colours


and it's reversible ...


Thank you so much Keren ... I love it!

If you haven't visited my uber talented friend ... you really should ... she has such a unique style and is regularly featured in both Crafts Beautiful and Simply Cards & Papercrafts magazines ...

At the end of this month I have a few friends and family who are celebrating birthdays and anniversaries ... I am trying to get my cards done ready to post and this is one I did for one of my brothers ... he doesn't read my blog so it will be ok to show you ... he is very much into photography hence the theme of this card


This proved quite a difficult card to photograph for some reason ... the mirri card used on the camera and the acetate used on the film strip don't help


The camera, film strip and the saying was cut on the Cameo and I found a photo which I printed several times to slide under the strip ... papers are a mix of Basic grey (striped) and Docrafts Wellington range .... the little book sticker is also from the Wellington range 

Have you plans for the weekend? I'm off to Lincoln to see my Aunt ... she not been too well so I'm looking forward to catching up and making sure all is well ... 
Have a lovely weekend whatever you are doing ... 

Till soon
