Have A Cool Birthday


Well, here I am back in the UK, with no travel anecdotes to regale you with - thank goodness. After all the angst about the suitcase weight, they didn't even bother to weigh them. It has taken me two days to unpack them though. Two days, cases unpacked, gifts wrapped and the house decorated for Christmas. Not bad going.


I must thank so many of you for the really gorgeous handmade cards that were waiting here for me, from Australia, Japan, Netherlands, USA, Canada, Chile, France, Spain, and of course good old Blighty (UK) ...............so many cards and so greatly appreciated. I am sure that you understand that this year, my world was in disarray for three weeks, so you will have to forgive me for not returning the compliment.


This card is one of mine that is published in the Christmas issue of Papercraft Inspirations, I just managed to get the last copy at the book store, so I can share it with you. The footballs are by Paper Cellar, this would be a good card for a teenage footy fan (soccer for my US friends).
