Hi everyone. I hope you're all well and happy.

As I'm having serious problems with my laptop I'll won't be able to post or visit your blogs for a while as it needs to be sent away (sob, sob) to get fixed. Don't you just love technology :(.  I would do it on my phone but it would take forever to write anything as my eyesight isn't good enough.  As a reward for patiently waiting for me to return I'll have a Candy Giveaway when I'm back. I've got my fingers crossed that it won't be for too long as I'll really miss you all. 

Take care and I'll see you soon (hopefully). Hugs to you all,

A Reminder for Lexi

Hi everyone. I hope you're all keeping yourselves busy crafting. I've been away for a few days so I'm just trying to catch up on your posts.

Sorry if I upset anyone with my post last week but I just needed to share my thoughts with someone. I only really see my hubby and son to chat to so it's great to have my blog friends to talk to as well.

Today's card is the card I made for Lexi's Birthday to remind her off her time in Australia with the fantastic beaches. Another go at a different kind of card for me. Hope you like it.

The outside.....

The lower layer of grass is a 'belly band' that keeps the card closed. This slides off for opening.

The inside.....

And a close up of the sparkly flip flops...

Have a great rest of the week and take care.
