Been a funny old week for me

Hello my dear blogging friends.....I have been on an emotional rollercoaster this week. My Mum was down from Scotland and our daughter graduated in the stunning setting of St Albans Cathedral.  The sun shone and we all had a fabulous day. Just look how beautiful Lynne was on the day and look at her cake we got made and the beautiful book we bought for her to treasure. 

Then a family matter arose that I can't talk about that dropped me right to the bottom but all is well once again and I am back in craft mode thankfully.  My closest friends know what the problem was but I am afraid I can't tell the world - not yet anyway!

I made this wee card tonight ....
and I have to say I am loving it.

Image from All Dressed Up Wear with Style;
Prisma pencils;
Papers are DoCrafts Bellisimo (dress in paper pieced with same paper);
Lace and ribbon from stash and
Banner Die is from Lala Land.


Thanks so much for popping in to visit.
