With A Cherry On Top

Afternoon all, it's nice and sunny here today, long may it last!  While the boss has been away I've taken advantage and spent Friday afternoon printing off loads of lovely papers from the Nitwits Collections I bought a couple of weeks ago.  Took some time over the weekend to colour up some LOTV images and the last couple of days making them into cards.  I'm actually ahead of myself now for female birthdays when they come around.  I have quite a few birthday's throughout the year but today's was done for my sister, she's first on the list and her birthday is in May.  All in all it was quite a productive weekend, got out the oven pride too and now my ovens are lovely and sparkly again.  As I'd been busy cleaning the oven and colouring in!!  (hehe) we went out on Saturday night for a meal.  I'd got a voucher (a bit like groupon) for a restaurant out of town so myself, Hubby and my sister all went together.  Had a lovely relaxed evening and a fab 3 course meal!  No plans for this weekend either so might get a few mens cards done instead.
