Sister's birthday picture

Hi everyone,

Hope you all thoroughly enjoyed yourselves and over indulged with yummy chocs and a glass of wine or two over Christmas.  I certainly have, but back down to earth this week with a big bump as I'm back to work.  It's my sister's birthday today and I've made her something a little different to the normal birthday card.  She keeps telling me to make her a card that she can frame for her bedroom wall.  So, her wish is my command - I've made a front only card so it will fit into a 10" x 8" photo frame.  I have used colours that match her bedroom; lemons, peaches and salmon colours.  I haven't posted it framed, but what do you all think.  I think it's a little unnusual to a normal birthday card.  Although it's her birthday today, we are not meeting up until tomorrow when we are going out for lunch so I will give it to her then.  I hope she likes it.....

Anyway, hopefully I will try and post a little more often if time allows, I do have a lot of family birthdays coming up, as usual so I'm going to be busy.  I was lucky enough to have a cricut for christmas off hubby and a table top easel to use when I photo my cards.

We are going to a fancy dress party new year's eve with my son, daughter in law and family members.  This will be the first time we've done fancy dress publicly so it should be fun.  I'll try and take some photos for you all to have a laugh at.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy new year, enjoy....  Dee xxx
