Pink and Lilac...

Hi there on this sunny afternoon. I'm here feeling a bit sorry for myself as I'm full of a cough and cold and don't feel like card making. So I'm going to show you a couple of cards I made back in January, doesn't that seem a long time ago! My mum's and mum-in law's birthday is a week apart in January and as I'm still recovering from Christmas I tend to make them similar cards. This time I used lili of the valley Thinking of you stamp which is really sweet with it's teddy in an envelope and You are my sunshine stamp. I'm sure they don't mind getting similar cards but they can compare them as we all live near one another, nearer than when we all lived near Manchester.
Anyway here's the cards for today

    I went clothing shopping & lunch with my friend as it was her birthday yesterday. I did have a great bargain last week as I purchased a new big shot machine online at a really good price from Hobby craft (it arrived on Saturday, not used it yet).
    I need to save some pennies as I have already made a wish list for the show next weekend .Hugs Karen x
