Good Morning Everyone, 
Sorry for being a bad blogger again! What a week, Tom and I have both been poorly with a nasty bug that's going around school...just starting to feel a little bit more human now! On top of that I've had lots of orders, some I can't show you yet and some are just repeats of those you've already seen so not much to actually put on here! This is one of the orders for a 60th birthday card.
It's James the Bear again from Lili of the Valley, coloured with promarkers and the gorgeous papers are also from Lili of the Valley, Country Meadow.
I've used a Die Namics petal die, a MB pippi butterfly die and a Joanna Sheen lace edge border die. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Papertake Weekly - Take Your Pick ( Ribbon and/or Lace)
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Fab n Funky - Die Cuts
Crafty Little Fairies - Not a Square 
Allsorts Challenge - Milestone Birthday
Penny Black and More - Anything Goes

I need to go and crack on with the list of orders, I haven't even started my own Christmas cards yet!! I'll hopefully get the chance to catch up with you all later.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today and have a lovely weekend.
