Another LOTV - I LOVE these stamps!!

Coo-ee, me again!!

I hope I find you all well today?  I'm feeling absolutely shattered - thank goodness it's Saturday!!  Even my eye's are hurting, poor old bird lol!!  We've been doing our Adoption Preparation courses for the last three weeks (one more to go next week) and it's been heavy going!!  We've had lots of fun but also tears.  Luckily for us the other prospective adopters on the course are all amazing people and we've really clicked as a group and already been out for a night out!  And the Social Workers taking the course are brilliant too.  It's been such an amazing experience so far for us, fingers (and everything else!) crossed we're allowed to move on to the next stage...

Anyway enough waffle and onto my card!  This one I've made for one of my friends and it's also for this week's Sketch Saturday Challenge Week #140.  Another fabby sketch by Jo, I loved this one!  And another LOTV from me, I love these stamps too!!  We have 2 new Design Team members that have joined our happy team this week, Bente and Karita.  You should definitely check their blogs out, amazing!!  Here's my card...

Close up of LOTV Birthday Fairy - Isn't she absolutely adorable, I love her!!

Here's this week's fabby sketch, I've rotated it...

And this week we're sponsored by The Craft Barn who are giving away a set of Crafty Secrets Cherub Clear Art Stamps!!

Apologies I haven't made many cards recently, it's all been a bit busy this end!!  I'm being made redundant at the moment too (as if there wasn't enough going on, lol!) and only have four weeks left at work so I plan to make quite a few cards in my time off before getting another job to make up for my recent absence, and also because I'll have time too, wahoo!!  But as for this weekend I'd better crack on, I have the VAT for Hubby's business to finish and file and then file his self assessment too. BORING!! But I'm out tonight with the girlies so that will be good fun, yaaaaaay :o) Looking forward to having a few drinkies and a good laugh!! I hope you all have a great one too, whatever you're up to?

Much Love,

Totally adorable card! Love this image (I've got it too, but haven't had chance to use it yet) and the colours are gorgeous. LOVE that spotty ribbon too! Glad to hear your prep courses are going well, although they must be exhausting - everything crossed for you, but I'm sure you'll have no problems going through to the next stage :o) Lisa x
