A Birthday Wish

Well, not blogged for a wee while, lately our social life has been quite busy. This weekend we had a dinner party and yesterday went to a barbecue. The food was lovely but although it stayed dry ,the weather wasn't brilliant,fire on when we got in and a hot cup of tea. Bob and I both feeling a bit achy today, hope were not coming down with some thing.
The loft is done now, boarded and lagged,thank goodness, I've still got bruises from being up there. But while I was up there I found some old crafting cd roms. My card features an image from a found cd rom, Victorian Birthdays by Joanna Sheen. The background paper is a Raspberry road download called circle of friends, this is a lovely vintage set I'm sure many of you would love , found here.
I've used a martha Stewart punch for the border strip and added some lace , part of the candy I won. The diecut is di namics, the flower brad The Hobby House and I've added some glamour dust for a bit of sparkle.
