- DD is excited because today is her birthday and she is now DD13! Yes, my baby is officially a teenager - which is exciting and sad for me at the same time. But I am so proud of the young lady she is becoming and love spending time with her - she seems to have inherited a rather warped sense of humour from somewhere (can't imagine where/who!!!! :P) and we have tons of laughs together.
- I am excited because I have a new craft room! Up until now I was squished on a small desk in a corner of my bedroom and stuff has been overflowing every which way I look (new stamps, papers etc seem to magically appear!), so I have now moved in to a craft room! After a very fun trip to IKEA (gotta love it!) and hours spent with my wonderful SIL helping assemble bookcases, I have started moving "schtuff" in! Once I am more settled in there I will get some photos up here for you to see my new slice of heaven!
So, naturally, these two events converged in that I needed to "christen" my new craft room by making a card - and had need of a card for DD's birthday! What could be more perfect?
I found some great wrapping paper that has brightly coloured balloons all over it and also some fab take out boxes (for goodie bags) also covered in bright balloons ... so naturally I have used those gorgeous balloons from Crazy for Cupcakes (one of those sets that magically appeared, LOL!) and some bright, cheerful colours. Here tis:
Unfortunately the night I had the crystal effects drying was a cold one ... so cold that it has cracked the CE!!! Luckily DD understood. The sentiment stamp from PTI expressed my feelings perfectly ...
