Happy 40th Birthday xx

Well the weather is just gorgeous but far too hot to sit in!! Moaning already LOL Thank you for the lovely comments you left me on my last post I am trying to get back the Chanelle I seem to have misplaced somewhere but its such a long job!!

I didn't manage to cut grass as I remembered a card order for my next door neighbour from her DH she is forty today and he has such a lovely day and weekend arranged for her but she soooo deserved it!

My DH came home from work expecting the lawn to be done and ended up doing it himself gosh I so love him as its such a big job!!

Anyway this is my card the order was: Pink, Girly, Blingy, Cupcakes, ribbon and so on think it was an order for the pizza shop!! lol
My first ever Mo Manning image can you believe that but so perfect for the Cupcake Queen especially with the bling!! 
My papers are from a 12 x 12 pad from Tilda and its just so perfect for the vintage theme Kerry loves with the lovely roses and soft colours. 
Cut the letters out on my Cricut "Story Book" with as you can see I love and added some pearl bling. 
A side view so you can see the yummy papers and my design.
All wrapped up and a gorgeous ribbon that I kept off some chocolates my daughter bought me which was just the perfect match. I have also added the little label for "Francy Cakes" as Kerry makes the most gorgeous yummy cakes and cupcakes she was the lady who made Summers and I can tell you it was divine and I had quite a lot so I should know!!  lol 
Wednesday I had Summer for the day and boy what a busy day we had we brought out the garden furniture and washed it all ready for Summer and then we did a little bit of gardening it was such a lovely day just me and Summer! 
This is Summers new friend whilst I was doing the garden she was looking for worms howcute is she!!!! 
This is a little bit of the garden that I have managed to sort just needs some more bark chippings on then its finished looks like I've left the bird table in the middle of the garden must remember to move it.

Wow what a long post I do hope you are still with me.

I often find myself chanting whilst perusing blogs, "I don't need a cricut, I don't need a cricut. I'm fine without one, I can do without, it's'll manage without one." Dangit, I said, "oh boy...I think I might need a cricut!" :D I'm not sure how much longer I can resist. Just so you know, I'm hanging it on you when I break it to the hubster..LOL! :D Your card is superb and I've loved admiring it.
Have a super weekend and I can't wait to see the next Nicecrane creations. :)

Wowzer!!! Gorgeous card - completely love it! I bet your friend was thrilled with it.

Urggghhh worms!!! You're lucky that Summer didn't eat it!!! My DS was about that age being very quiet in the garden and when I went over to investigate he was merrily chomping on a worm - bleaurghhh :(

Congrats on your win - it's was a cracking card.
