Now some of the more observant of you and those of you who have been browsing my blog for a little longer might spot that I have done a card similar to this before. But it IS different in some places and it was a last minute request from a friend to make a card for the next morning, so I quickly put this together knowing I had done something similar before. So I hope you don't mind..but friends seem to like these images better that the cutesie ones we all love :)

I am going to be taking a wee bloggy break for a few days. My Mum and Dad arrive today and I haven't seen them for over a year so I am cancelling all 'extras' for the kids and myself and going to spend some quality time with them. I might sneak in to check out your blogs but my crafty stash is having a holiday! I will be back at the weekend for Colour Create.

Have a fab week and for those of you getting sunshine, enjoy! And send some of it up North!!

I think it's a great idea to recreate a tried and tested card when you're in a hurry Judy - it looks fab and I know what you mean about friends not always liking the cuties!
Have a great time with your parents and we'll all still be here when you come back!! xx

Beautiful card Judy, I know what you mean about the cutsie thing, I think people love them or hate them and this image is perfect for those that don't like them. It's still cute but a bit more grown up and your card is so prettily decorated and embellished. I hope you have a really lovely time with your Parents and make up for lost time. See you at the weekend. Chris x
