smile it`s your birthday

well i thought it was about time i sat down and did some crafting ~it`s been 2 weeks since i got my crafty bits out!! ~and my mother-in-laws birthday is on the horizon!!
been so wanting to ink up my popcorn bears ~so found just the challenges to do so!!
over on CUTE CARD THURSDAY ~ the theme is "tealy good" ~to use the colours teal and red, used the fab sketch over on FRIDAY SKETCHERS and followed the challenge on STAMP FOR FUN ~~"birthday". (links on my side bar)

used my new K and CO paper, popcorn the bear smile stamps (stamped a few times and decoupaged) , nestabilities pinking circles, red vellum and ribbon from my stash ~finished with glitter.

well all is settling down here ~my father is well on the mend now, should be up and running (well not quite) for our holiday, DH paul paid for me to go private and have my scans done instead of waiting over 4 weeks for the NHS~waiting to hear from my doctor ~ all seems well (fingers crossed) ~as for paul well the case bought against him by another work colleague is still being investigated (i cannot talk about it at the moment) ~so again fingers crossed, hope the company see paul is innocent.
have missed seeing all your beautiful creations ~hope i can get some blogging done this evening (if the boys are not fighting!!) byeeeeeeeeeeeeeee for now xx
