Better late than never

Back at the very beginning of this month, I should have been at a crop at Eclectic Keepsakes.  But I was full of nasty germs and in no fit state to inflict my bugs on others.  The two Karens very kindly packaged up some bits from the class for me and Denise dropped them in on her way home.  Yesterday, I decided that I would have a go at the card that they made and came up with this
It should really be a Thank You card but I decided that I would change it slightly so that it became a birthday card.  I love the colours of the papers that they chose for this and I especially love that filigree butterfly punch! 
Off to a quiz night tonight as part of a team of old school friends, so I really ought to be swotting up on things that happened this week, tv awards, film awards, sporting results etc.  But we had a late night out last night as we had dinner round our friends' house and to be honest, I think I may need a nap instead!

Enjoy your nap, the card looks lovely. Hope you enjoy tonight - wonder if there will be a question about a new series on Sky called Blue something and which hunky actor is in it ? xx
