Anything but a Birthday!

Hello there...lovely to see you!

I'm sorry that I haven't been around much in blogland this week...after my lovely week off work I was rudely brought back to reality with a rather busy work diary this week! I'm currently demonstrating some new software to colleagues around the business and this has meant trips to Leeds, our head office in New Malden and Cheltenham....lots of travelling!

Anyway, I wanted to say a BIG thank you to everyone for their lovely Birthday messages, I've really loved reading them all and will be visiting you all soon I promise. I had a brilliant birthday and a fab party last Saturday, everyone dressed for the occassion and we listened to rock n roll all night ......

 
This is me and Joe ready to party...my fab hair stylist Lucy gave me my retro do!

 
Everyone made such an effort...here I am with the girlies (and Gerty the puppy!)

 
Finally, it wouldn't be a blog post without some cake!
 
Soooo....today's challenge over at Sweet Stampin this week is really quite good for me. The challenge is "anything but a Birthday"....so we want to see your projects that do not include Birthdays! Considering all the lovely pressies I recieved last week I opted to make a thank you card....
 
 
I've gone all pretty and girlie for this card, using soft pastel colours to compliment the pretty doilly and flower paper. My cupcakes have been coloured with my Promakers and I have added a little bit of sparkle to the cherries.
 
Pop by the Sweet Stampin challenge blog to see all the fab projects that the Team Abi have created this week. While you're there you can find out about the fab prizes that our sponsors are offering this week...
 

 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
 
Pop by these fab blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
 
Thanks for popping by today,
