Proud to be British

Well, how fab were the Olympics?! I was hooked to my TV for the whole fortnight. And for someone who can't swim & hates the water I bizarrely couldn't get enough of the rowing, diving & swimming!
A friend of mine celebrated her 40th birthday just after the Olympics so I made her this card ...

We had a further reason to be cheerful in our family too, my lil sister passed her driving test first time :) very proud of her & you guessed it ... another card was needed ...

And as I haven't updated my blog for a while, I'm going to spoil you with a third card! My Mum retired this year. For the last 10 years or so she has worked part time in a shoe shop, so her retirement card from me had to incorporate shoes!

As you can see from my lack of blog posts lately, I've been quite busy with extra hours at work & with studying. I finished one of my Open University modules in June & recently received my result of a Grade 2, narrowly missing a distinction by 1 mark!
I've also had quite a few cards to make & will post some of these over the next couple of weeks.

Thanks for popping by & take care x
