Back to Work...

The title says it all, I am back to work tomorrow after two weeks off.  No more crafting, chilling out or just doing what I want - its back to the real world, sigh... I have even tidied up my craft room as it will be a while before I can play again.

But it was my birthday yesterday and I had the most amazing cards and pressies!

Here is the card my Mum made me.  She hasn't been crafting very long and as she bought some flower punches the other day - she has obviously been practicing.  She had mentioned that she was proud of the card she had made me but I got really emotional when I saw it - its beautiful.
Here is a card my Auntie Val made me - her parchment work is incredible and the colouring is stunning in real life.

Then there is this gorgeous card & pressie from the amazing Sara
She has all the information on her new website here.

And last but by no means least here is the card Joanne made me.

Can you spot a theme?  Yep, lots of orange cards Woo Hoo!  I love orange its such a bright, cheerful colour. 

I had a lovely day too & also went out for a meal at one of our favourite restaurants La Fortezza in Wakefield.  I was so full I couldn't even manage a sweet!

Well, thanks for bobbing over to see me, I will have some more photos of the items I have made for the craft fair at Elsecar soon.
