Hello peeps!!!

yep, 2 posts in one day!! I am cooking on gas today!!! lol!!!

No, in all seriousness I got a message from my big sister today to say that my fabby nephew, Jake, has got a place in the secondary school he really wanted to go to. I am so excited for him as they specialise in drama and he especially wanted to go there because of that. I decided I needed to make a card for Jake to celebrate. Secondary is such a big deal because they go from being the oldest at primary school to being the teeniest peeps at their secondary school.
Christy put up a new image in the store last week called Ty the Tapdancer and I just knew he would be perfect for a card for Jake. I coloured him up and cut him out so I  could use Femke's awesome word art for Ty to dance away on and cut myself a few stars on my cricut ( linkies for all up at the top).
Now I didn't have any buttons to match my yummy blue cardstock on my stars so I had to have a bit of a think......cogs whirring....oooooh I could make a button out of some of my card candy!!!!! yey!!!!! I made 4 little buttons with some silvery thread through them.

So I promise that is me done for the day now!!!!! if I make anything else I promise to save it for tomorrow but I was so excited about this one!!!!!

Huge hugs Lou xxxxx
