Lil Lolita Lylah & last post for a while...

Hey peeps, first up I'd like to welcome all my new followers... hope you all stick around after the candy draw! I did have originally that becoming a follower as a requirement for entry but changed it to only if you like my blog - it's great to see so many of you following me! When we return from our holiday I'll try and get some time to visit you all... though DH might not be enthused with how much blogging time it will take! :0)

I've made a 30th birthday card for a girlfriend's birthday next Friday. I'm not sure if we'll be home from our trip, but thought I'd make one just in case so I don't have to rush and make it when we return. There's 5 of my mates (incl myself) all having 30th birthdays in the next 2 months so expect to see more 30th cards hehe
I've free-handed a champagne bottle shaped card and embellished to the hills!..

The tag tucks in out of the way behind the front 'label', and I added 'polka dots' to Lylah's dress

Sorry for the super dodgy photos, it's overcast and looks like a storm will be here soon. I'd like to enter the Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #1 Anything Goes
Thanks for popping in, I won't be around for the next week, all going well (that means the kids not playing up or whinging too much :)) we expect to be gone a week or so
take care ♥
