How romantic....

....hello everyone...hope you've had a good day today....isn't this sunshine doesn't have to be blazing hot....just the sun being there makes me smile!

So, I didn't really tell you that much about my Birthday yesterday....the hotel in London was amazing, I had breakfast in bed on my actual Birthday...something everyone should treat themselves to I think! I spent a lot of time with my lovely boyfriend Joe just relaxing...he is treating me to a lovely pressie this year...he's taking me to Cornwall for a long weekend in the summer and I can't wait! We can't have our usual week surfing together because of his stupid drifting competitions, but this way I still get to go to Newquay and hopefully my knee will be better by then and I'll actually be able to surf!! Its such a thoughtful present from Joe, I'm very lucky.

While I was in a romantic mood this evening I decided to create this cute little wedding card

This card is for two card challenges - the Papertake Weekly Challenge and the Bee Crafty challenge. Over at Papertake Weekly they gave us this fab sketch to play with. I love sketch challenges because everyone's designs are so different - take a peek at the DT cards to see what I mean! The DT designs are all so lovely, such brilliant inspiration!

Then pop over to the Bee Crafty blog where they are asking for designs for either a wedding, wedding anniversary or engagement....this fitted in perfectly with my romantic mood! This challenge has to include a digi image...I've used this cute wedding couple one from Bee Crafty. Take a peek here to see the beautiful DT designs.

As well as the basic sketch and the digi image I've also created my own little heart embellishment out of jewellery wire and some tiny pink seed beads. I've attached this to the back of the sentiment, which is attached to the card with 3D sticky pads.

The supper club was great fun yesterday, it was held in a local bar in Surbiton and I went along with my lovely sister Lorna. We had three delicious courses....although there were scallops in the starter and I hate scallops....luckily Lorna really liked them! Pudding was my favourite...a gorgeous creamy trifle - yummy!

Anyway, I'm off now...I want to watch Heston's amazing creations!

Thanks for stopping by,
