Birthday Favourites …

Its not only my birthday in our household this week ... its also my daughters, she’s no longer my baby ... she turns 21 on Tuesday, I’m safe posting this as she doesn’t get a chance to have a look on here (I’m not sure even knows this blog exists lol) she's on her final weeks at the training base before going off for her first posting for the RAF – Its going to hurt – She’s off to SCOTLAND!! For THREE years, although better that than Afghanistan ...

Anyway, I digress, the card, I made it with the current Passion for Papertrey challenge in mind, I made it with all my favourite colours (and stamps). btw I HAD to use Sweet pea her ‘pet’ name is ... sweet pea (good thing she, and her friends don’t read my blog lol)

I do hope she likes it, I already feel guilty as I’ve only sent her a card (and chocolate ), she’s coming home next weekend for her presents, her last weekend home with the family before leaving for Scotland. (which for my USA readers is the other end of the country, We’re on the South Coast)
