May CCC and Boyzone Challenge
























This is the beautiful card I received from Pia in Denmark for the May Card Chain Challenge organised by the lovely Deborah. Its such a beautiful design and I don't think the photograph really captures it.  It has definitely added the starburst lace stamp to my wish list. lol.  This is such a great challenge to enter, as after you make and post your card, you have an exciting wait till your own card pops through the letterbox from somewhere in the world!

I have been really busy this weekend and I have only had time to make one quick card for The Daring Cardmakers Challenge , Its to make a boys card and I have made this for a small boy with a digital image from Meljens designs. I love the giraffe image and its an easy one to colour.























Yesterday as a little wedding anniversary surprise and late birthday treat, Hubby and myself together with my best friend Gina and her husband went to London to see a show.  First we had a meal in Covent Garden ( we sat outside as the weather was glorious) then it was off to see "The Jersey Boys", if you like music its a must see show about Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons. Now I am busy packing as I am away for a few days on a residential visit to the Isle of Wight with the school where I work.  We are taking 82 children on an activity holiday and I am going as medical person, this is my 15th year of going, you could say I am, an old hand at it now.  Its a very exciting but very tiring trip I am really looking forward to half term!

Hope you all have a great week.
