Happy Birthday D!

I've been a bit neglectful of my blog, but trust me, there is a LOT going on around here to keep me away, not least that I have started my new job, and since I am training, I have worked four days this week, fitting in everything else around that. However, I am getting on well, and it really is a perfect job for me and I am enjoying it.

Alex also did really well with her GCSE results, much better than any of us could have dared to hope, and she has now secured herself a place at the sixth form that she really wants to go to, so that is really good news.

Our old dog Ollie has been really poorly this week, I was desperately worried about him, but it turns out not to be as sinister as I had feared, so that also is good news.

Anyway, here is a card that I made for my Stepdad's birthday last weekend:

I was worried that hearts on a card for a man wouldn't work, but I think with these papers I got away with it, hope you agree!

  3. Carole - the card works brilliantly! Are those Boxer papers I can see? It's one of my all time favourite BG lines.
