Lucy's card and cake

Hello there! Wow it feels like its been a while since I got on here - my last posts were scheduled as we were away on holidays - more of that later but sorry for lack of comments and thankyou so much for all of yours - you are very kind!!!!

We got back last night and my feet have barely touched the floor since then. Its Lucy's birthday today and so last night I had to defrost and then decorate the cake - then I got up at 5.30 this morning to make quiche and pizzas, rice salad, potato salad and coleslaw. We had my lovely mum and her brother and sister in law over and also Shaun's mum and brother and his family came up. It was lovely to see everybody and I think that Lucy had a lovely day. She is looking very grown up to me!

This is the card I made for her using a beautiful stamp from Tracy Easson.

here's a closer look!

Here's the cake! I was pleased with this!

And here's my beautiful smiley big girl!!!!

Big hugs
