Easter catch up

Hi everyone I hope you all had a lovely Easter and didn't over indulge! I had a busy week leading up to the weekend with front row seats at our local theatre on Tuesday to see Pasha from Strictly which was amazing! It was a present for my friend Jean for her birthday and we had a nice meal beforehand. The next day Jean and I went to see Made in Dagenham, brilliant, followed by a fab Japanese meal and Thursday caught up with friends over a very nice Indian meal!!
Charlie had a great weekend the highlight being a ride on a big red bus,upstairs in the front seat! He was amazed that it talked and repeated all the stops :o)

I've been busy making some special birthday cards that can't be shown yet and I was sorry to miss last week's CASE-ing Christmas challenge! I needed to put that right and so here is this weeks card that I cased from DT Rocky's card:


I chose to go with the bauble and red. I used SU Christmas baubles stamp and punch and some glitter paste through a flourish stencil. Rocky's card is below, fabulous eh?


No choir for another couple of weeks so my Wednesday evenings are free, more time to catch up with friends :o) 
It's the Big Stamp and Scrapbooking fair this weekend at Ally Pally so I may just have to go along for a little look! Anyone else going it would be nice to catch up!
Hope you're all enjoying this fab spring weather, long may it continue :o)
