Cats Birthdays and Bargains

How are you all? good I hope ...

Yesterday we ventured out for a coffee and visited Dunhelm which is a store that sells kitchen ware, bedding and home goods ... though I wasn't looking for anything other than a warm bed for the stray cat that is still here, despite every effort to find her owners ... Anyway, I ended up with a couple of bargains ... I got a beautiful Dorma bed throw reduced from £90 to £26!! PLUS I got the matching curtains reduced from £60 to £13! Now that's my kind of bargain ... I did get a bed for the cat too by the way...
Here's a photo I took a few days ago ... Isn't she lovely? 

Today is a very special birthday .. It's Mikey's 32nd birthday 
My goodness, where do the years go?? One minute I was struggling as a single parent to my child, running a home and holding down a job and then suddenly here I am ... My little boy is a man and every treasured memory is etched so deep in my heart that it feels like only yesterday

Here's the card I made for him

Yep, sequins and silver Lol!
I like them with the grunge stamps

A little tip for you ... You know that foam stuff that you find in packaging... It's about 5mm thick and similar to a sponge (Not the polystyrene kind) - It looks like this

Well, it's fabulous for using in shaker cards and to pop up dies cuts ... It goes through the Big Shot so easily and just springs back up ... I used it  as a backing for the "Birthday" word die

I would recommend using a wet adhesive though like an all purpose glue

I do hope you have a lovely week 

Till soon
