Happy Birthday Tams!

I have definitely decided when  if I get a new DT I'm going to take them on based on when their birthday is as straight off the back of Pinky and Amanda's, it's Tam's birthday today!!! Happy birthday old girl...I hope your day is megaliciously flabulous :-D

I had a bit more time for Tam's card though that worries me because I don't normally have extra time as I'm always Last Minute Annie and up to my eyeballs more times than not. I'm now thinking I've forgotten to do something :-S Oh well, I'll worry about that when the time comes.

I was on Lyndsey's tutorial blog again as I'd been eyeing up her Free Standing Pop-up Card. It looked far too complicated for me but when I found I had this 'extra time' I thought I'd give it a bash. Normally I have a practise run but decided to go for it in a one-er and surprisingly it worked lol. This is what I came up with...

I think the next time I'll have to either a) use heavier cs b) not put so much on the pop up part or c) weigh the base down with pennies because it's not very sturdy though that has nothing to do with the design. After I finished this one I wasn't all that crazy about the buttons so I changed the for ....

my new flower! I love this one so much better although I left the buttons on the front edge of the base. Again I used my gorgeous new pp from BG

What I would do to have a soak in the tub!

I went a bit mad with the GA but I love the look of the tub.

I LOVE this flower...I used another one of Tam's flowers for the middle and added a bit of's really pretty with a bit of sparkle :-D

We had a great time at Sally's birthday party...nothing to raucous now that she's 40 lol. She was VERY surprised when the curtain was pulled back and we started singing Happy Birthday and she looked  beautiful (no weight gain that I was hoping for hmph!). After the pub lunch we went back to theirs for more fun and some singing. Their daughter's Amber and Abi wrote Sally and song and Amber sang it along with a few other songs. She's only 14 and has a beautiful can hear her HERE singing First Love by Adele. We're hoping she'll sing at Nicole and Ben's wedding...we want to book her now before her prices go up lol.

I've put my run off long enough so I'd better hit the road. Make sure you check in for tomorrow's TLT. I've got a few things up my sleeve that you might like :-D

Have a great Monday!

Catch ya later x
