Birthday time.

Yesterday was my good friend Karen's birthday and she always loves to have something handmade.
What to do so soon after Christmas?

This year I cheated and popped across to Pinterest for a few ideas.
It's great you can look on friends walls and see
"what they like, what they really, really like!"

This is my interpretation;

And a closer look;

My inspiration was from here.
I went with a classic Cream and black combo using Paris Nights by g.c.d. studio.
I love these papers.
This garland would not only great for Valentine's day but up and coming Weddings too.
Me, I think I might just have to have one in teal!!
That will be a shock to my crafting pals.
Watch this space.

That's all for me just now.
My craft room is still a mess and I have a long awaited appointment with the ironing board....yawn!
I have been staying away from my craft room,
a. because it's a mess but also
b. to spend more time with my boys. 
It turns out I've mainly just been catching up on things around the house.
Even more yawning!
Hopefully normal service will resume soon.
