Morning everyone.  The weather's a bit cooler today which is lovely, I love the hot weather but not so that yer sweat yer pants off lol!   I do hope it brightens up a little today as it's Ethan's sports day at school - he'll be in a right sulk if it rains and the day gets cancelled!!!  

Pete's on his way home for the weekend as I type which is fab - though it feels a bit strange today!!!  He works a away a lot in his job so comes and goes so to speak, HOWEVER - today is our fifth wedding anniversary and we've NEVER been able to spend it together due to his working - so this'll be a first!!!!  I would like to think he might treat me to a slap up meal to celebrate - but I don't fancy pie and peas from chippie rofl!!!!  Oops - better do a card!!!!


Onto todays challenge from Totally Papercrafts, we have the lovely Caroline hosting this weeks challenge which is...............

"  O N E   F O R   T H E   G I R L S " 

  One may think this a perfect excuse to get out all those pretty papers, gorgeous ribbons and girly embellies - HOWEVER, ribbons and papers I can do but I decided against anything sugary girly sweet, after all, it IS my wedding anniversary so I thought about us older gals and strangely enough my hen night came to mind (only without the fireman - thanks Jo lol).  Here's what I came up with....... 

This is maybe a bit saucy for what she had in mind but I'm sure it'll get a giggle outta Caroline lol!


Digi Image - Victoria Case
Papers - Basic Grey
Ribbons - Stash
Heart Embellie - Basic Grey
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Cardstock - Stash
Sentiment - Digi from Charmed Cards and Crafts
