Give Thanks

Hello there....long time no see!!

I hope you've had a lovely week and you're now looking forward to the weekend! I've had a fun packed and really busy week! Last weekend, as some of you know, I went on a rock 'n' roll themed weekend with my sister Lorna. Its an event thats been held for the passed 15 years in Pontins Camber Sands and I'm pleased to report that we had a fantastic time! There was lots of live music, DJs, dancing, dressing up and cars! It was like we were walking around the set of Grease all weekend! Lorna and I adore the 50s and have started to perfect our look, and we're definitly not there yet....however spurred on by a weekend of people watching we're going back nect year and aim to have full outfits and hair dos!!


Here are a selection of photos from the weekend that I'd like to share with you all.....

This is the Sunday morning "car boot sale"...check out all those fab outfits!

 
Lorna and her new head scarf!
 
 
Me and a rather yummy mince pie...check out the HUGE blob of cream...yes I ate it all!! Naughty, naughty!!

 
As well as this fun, I've also had Thursday and today off to celebrate my boyfriend's Birthday.....Joe turned 31 yesterday and we spent the day lounging, going bowling and having a rather yummy dinner with his parents at Jamies in Guildford. 
 
Happy Birthday Joe!
 
Yesterday was also a special day in America....I hope all my American blog friends have enjoyed the celebrations! Happy Thanks Giving!
 
With this in mind I also have a a little card for you today.....
 
 
Not a traditional thanks giving card...but a thank you card none the less!!
 
I'm not entirely sure about the colour combo, I wanted something pretty that would compliment the kraft paper...I think it kinda works, but I'm just not 100% sure!!
 
I've stamped my image on kraft paper and have coloured the cupcake with my Promarkers. The blue paper is pleated at one end...you can't really see it in this photo, but I promise its pleated!!
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Cupcake Craft Challenge - paper pleating
The Pink Elephant - give thanks
Love to Create - give thanks
Crafty Sentiments - give thanks
Passion for Promarkers - colouring on Kraft
