Shop til u drop 'dressy' birthday card

Hi, all, I'm back again, this time with a card I've made for a work colleague.  Like a lot of us girls she likes to shop, so I thought this card quite appropriate for her.  I love the way Sue Wilson gathers her ribbon on cards and thought it finished this one off quite nicely.  What do you all think, hope you like it!

I've been blog hopping the past week or so, and as usual Eileen is producing stunning cards, but I have to also mention  Poppy's Patch (Sylvia), Bev Rochester's blog, Fleur's blog, Stampin for Pleasure (Sandra), Cards Calligraphy (Shaz In Oz) and Addicted to Magnolia (Ellen) to name but a few, but I would also like to say a BIG Thank You to my new followers and everyone else who has left a kind few words and taken the time to look at my blog.  It's been nearly 12 months since I took the plunge into the blogging world and a big thanks to Eileen for her enthusiasm and encouragement.

Also I've been busy trying to make christmas cards, but the past few days have not been fruitful, as I came home from work early on Thursday with an upset tummy, I couldn't believe how quickly it hit me at work and by the time I drove home I was like a wet lettuce, good for nothing, so Friday was a wash out too.  Didn't feel anything like myself until saturday and today I had family over for lunch so good job I was feeling better...  I'll post again later in the week with a couple of christmas cards I've put together.

I've also posted a couple of photos of goodies I bought at the NEC a couple of weeks back, I forgot I hadn't posted these yet.  As usual spent more than I was going to, but enjoyed every minute watching a couple of demos too..  See you all soon.   Luv Dee xxx
