Fabulous Friday!....................

Hello!

I hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend!
I am so very fed up with myself at the moment. I have been ill since Boxing Day and just can't seem to get better. Such a pain! Fingers crossed next week I will be feeling good :)


I do have some cards to share that I made a while ago and this is one that morphed into my Granddaughter Isabella's card for when she turns five.
She is dance mad and does ballet, tap and modern and will be performing her first show on the stage soon so we are mega excited to be going!
