Sweet Sixteen

Morning my lovely blog friends, and can I say, that it is good to be back, have missed you all, suffice to say, that the problem with my Shoulder and Hand, have been dealt with.

Today I want to share a card, that I made for The Paper Shelter's challenge - Birthday Card with a Sentiment...a perfect opportunity to make a 16th Birthday card for my super gorgeous Grand-daughter, Sinead..who will be 16 on the 29th July, and I just cannot believe that I am a Granny to a near 16 year old...she is my best friend and shopping buddy...and I bought this image (which kind of looks like her) from The Paper Shelter Shop - she is called - Summery  I hope you like my card, and can I say, I got real bored (not a word I like) reading and was so happy to get back into my Craft-room.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Allsorts - WK#267 - Splish Splash Splosh
Crafty Calender - July - Summertime Fun
Little Claire's - CH#47 - Summertime
Fussy and Fancy Friday - All About the Girls

That is all from me for today, we are off to Dundee, to see our daughter and grandchildren, so whatever you do have a fabulous day, hugs to ALL.
