Birthday Balloon

Afternoon all, muggy here in Hull today, was looking forward to some thunder yesterday but it didn't happen!  What you all got planned for the Jubilee weekend?  I've not got much on, although on Tuesday we're heading to my sisters for a nice buffet lunch.  Have taken an extra day's holiday on Wednesday as I'm off to see Dionne Warwick in the evening.  I won two tickets a few weeks back and they arrived last week, along with a letter to tell me we had to meet for a VIP reception and then we're being taken to the open air Theatre by miniature railway! - Just hope it's a dry night!

Coloured up an image the other day and made a card and although I liked it when I finished it, it wasn't quite what I wanted, so I coloured another one last night and came up with today's card, which I lurve!  The image was a freebie from Krista at Saturated Canary - she's called Ava and she's gorgeous.
