Vintage Birthday

Firstly I would like to apologise for not blogging over the last few days. It's been a very hectic week, I have been working on my Heartfelt Creations projects for submission (almost ready for posting) and spending time with the family. I have had lots of new goodies delivered this week too so looking forward to lots of crafting this coming week :)

I have a card to share with you today.
It is an 8x8 and I have used a few of my new goodies to create it :), although I found it very diffuclt to cut the papers up as they are just lush!
