A Month Of Posts ... Thankful

Over on docrafts, the blog topic today is "What are you thankful for". Isn't that obvious? I'm more than thankful for discovering crafting which is mainly due to Lady. Without Lady I'd never have gotten into crafting as much as I have. Without crafting I'd spend a lot more hours of my days rather bored! Crafting gives us more reason to spend time together. Shopping trips turn into "hunt the craft shop" trips, whilst meeting for coffee has turned into "let me show you my latest project"!! Crafting even allows us the ocassional weekend trips away to exciting places like Birmingham!! Ok, I'll admit Birmingham may sound rather dull, but in the crafting world it's a pretty big thing as it's where we get a lot of ideas and spend a heck of a lot of money on all new crafting toys whilst sharing good times and giggles along the way. If you're as lucky as us you'll even get the odd freebie or two from our friends over at Crafty Ribbons . Not that we ever expect it to be free ... it's more that Ali doesn't let us pay!!

Ooo talking of Crafty Ribbons, if you have a little spare time pop over to their jubilee inspirations blog. Ali and the team are running daily competitions to win lots of craft goodies ... not to be missed if you're a crafter! Each day Ali's posting up some of the projects her and the team have made to go with the themes. A while ago on one of our "craft outings" Ali promised to send us a selection of their jubilee ribbons to play with. As always, she didn't disappoint us! We've made quite a few projects using her beautiful ribbons which over the next two weeks she'll share with everyone. In fact yesterday she shared the picture of Crusty's cupcakes. ...

They really were as yummy as they looked!! You can find the post Ali featured them on here.

Ok then, onto today's project. At the start of the week I made this card ...

It was a bit of a last minute request as it was needed for just two days later. Thankfully I got it finished in time, and I think it turned out rather well. Today is Jennifer's 30th birthday. We hope you've had a lovely day Jennifer and liked your card as much as us.
