Someone Else's Birthday and Thank You xx

It is indeed!!!
It's my eldest daughter's birthday today, so happy birthday Nikkie xx
And this is the card I made for her
I thought I would use it for Cute Card Thursday's challenge which is a great one this week cos it is an open challenge.
I think this image is ever so cute :))

Papers and sentiments are PP - can't stop using that gorge green - and Tilda has been coloured with PMs. I've used my new nesties which I got yesterday and I just love them, as well as the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug folder. Ribbons are Poppicrafts.

This next one is the card I've done as my thank you card for my birthday presents. There are a few en route to some lovely people as we speak, but I thought I would put this one on here as a thank you to everyone who left me such lovely messages, so this is also for those fab peeps as well xxxx

The image is one of the new Sugar Nellies Leanne Ellis designs which I got from the fabulous Funky Kits. Same paper, punch and PMs - oh I am a creature of habit lol xxx

And not only with my cards, it would seem!!!

I said at the top that it's my eldest's birthday today. Well on Monday, it is my youngest's!! I obviously had the same bad planning as my folks lol xx
All 3 of us are in the same week, which is a bit strange, not to mention flippin expensive just before Christmas. Both my girls were born on a Saturday, one at 2.15pm and the other at 3.25pm. I came out of hospital on Christmas Eve with both of them as well.

Talk about deja vu!!!

Kyla has said she might like to go and see Santa tomorrow at Sycamore Garden Centre. She knows he isn't the real one as he is a bit busy right now, and knows this one will take her messages back to the real one. She said she is not sitting on his knee (quite right!!) and that if she doesn't want to talk to him, will I ask him to bring her some sweets for Christmas!!! Oh bless, it is the only thing she has asked for. Not that she doesn't have sweets, she does, but she doesn't have loads. But we feel mean every time she says it. Poor little mite bashed her face on Friday at nursery, cos she tripped over a cushion and fell into a wall. So she has a bruise on her head and a very sore bottom lip where her teeth went into it - ouch.

Ohhh did anyone see the Strictly Come Dancing Final? How FANTASTIC was Tom & Camilla's show dance!! This has been the best series so far and Saturday nights won't be the same without it. The Beeb haven't got a lot right lately, but this has been awesome.

Well I am off to get me wyncyettes on. I have a new pair of black cotton pjs ready for Christmas eve, a bit like a t-shirt and leggings. I think they will probably make me look a bit like a ninja but I don't greatly care. And if, after a couple of Baileys, I feel like re-hashing my tai chi moves, then they will come in handy and I will at least look the part lol xxx

I would post photographic evidence but there might be people out there of a nervous disposition!! The effect could be quite catastrophic and I can't be held responsible lol xxxx

I will be back tomorrow cos I have had some more cards which thanks to the 'fantastic' postal service, have arrived late despite being posted well in time. And there maybe even be another challenge card!!!

Have a fab Saturday night xxxxx
