Counting down....

Hey!

Well it's been a while but I'm back! And even better for you lot, I'm back with a card!

Ahhh it's been a crazy few weeks this end - Dad was discharged from hospital yesterday. Fingers crossed that this second discharge is the final one! Seeing him home makes me happier and reduces those stress levels slightly :D

And another way to reduce stress is to break up for the super long sweet summer holidays!!!! We don't break up until Friday but school is officially on it's 'Activity Days' which means lots of fun activities and trips for the last 3 days with the students. Wish I could spend it cardmaking but I can't complain about being paid to accompany a trip to the cinema and shopping tomorrow *wink*

Seeing as life is still kinda busy, it's a good job I have some cards to share that I made AGES ago. Apologies for the poor pic - not much I can do now the card has been given way LOL!

Card Recipe
Stamps: My Favourite Things - What's up Cupcake?/Hero Arts - sentiment
Cardstock: PTI Aqua Mist
Patterned Paper: From Stash (sorry!)
Accessories: Corner Rounder/Star Brad/EK Success Border Punch/Promarkers/Glossy Accents/Judikins Glitter


This was made for my SIL's birthday in early June. I couldn't resist a good dollop of sparkles on those sweet cupcakes!

Now I do have more back-up cards to share but I'm hoping that starting next week I'll have plenty of time on my hands to catch up with y'all in Blogland as well as getting inky of course! As for now though I need to keep walking around our apartment in some new high heels to bed them in for a wedding function tomorrow night! I have a feeling I'm gonna end up with sore feet tomorrow.....

Catch ya later!
