Girl About Town!

Evening all,

Just popping on briefly before I go to bed, going as a decent time tonight. Have just finished marking some test papers and bits and pieces and had a wee quick blog hop to post some new blog candy. Some great candy out there. Well I failed my challenge yesterday ....I didn't post, did I? Tut tut .... must do better! There's always too many things to be done on your first day back at work, well that's what I tell myself at least.

Here is a card which I made on Tuesday for someone who is celebrating their 30th birthday next week. Oh to be 30 again! I used the recently released Girl About Town downloads from Dottie's World which can be bought from Charmed Cards and Crafts. Great images which even come with each image already coloured in case you are in a hurry and need to make a quick card, a great option. They even come with some sentiments too which co-ordinate beautifully with the images. The paper is a Pink Petticoats download which I bought last week, the flower is from Lakeland (bought these yonks ago) and the gem is from paperchase. I was really chuffed with the end result.



I keep seeing lots of lovely charms and spacers on people's cards and wondering where people are buying them from! I know that you can get some on ebay but would love to know where else people get their stash from???

Well I'm off to bed, not sure for how long until Lewis gets up as he is not a great sleeper and is up EVERY night. I keep hoping that this will change but sadly it doesn't look like it ... maybe when he is a teenager!

Will be back tomorrow. Sleep well!

Aw very girly 30th card Lainy, really pretty, love the colours & papers! :-)
Know exactly what you mean about the charms & I also wonder?
Oh & the lack of sleep is SO familiar too, won't tell you what age Rory was when he finally started sleeping ALL night, it'll only depress you! Lol

Hi Lainy, hope you're well if lacking in sleep somewhat, hope you did at least get some! Your card is gorgeous and the image is perfect for a girlie 30th, I'm sure she'll love it. I think there are a lot of online bead shops where you can get the spacers etc. Take care and have a lovely weekend. Chris xxx
