Make It Monday #42 - Happy Birthday to Me!!


Hope you all enjoyed a fabulous weekend.

We did, although it was a busy one. We have finally reclaimed our yard after what was incredibly wet  and long wet season. We have mulched the gardens, repaired our driveway and build a 20 metre long cement wall (about 20cm high) to stop the water coursing across our land from our neighbours block.

Feels good to have got all that done!!

Today is my birthday!! Although it doesn't feel all that exciting, with Hubby at work and the boy's at school.

I have been spoilt though.

My wonderful Mum and Dad have showered me in crafting supplies (joy's of having a Mum who is a SU demo and a generous Dad!!)

Some of you may remember that my Dad had a very severe stroke last October. He came home from the hospital at Chirstmas time and has been coming ahead in leaps and bounds. Perhaps he got just a little too confident with his walking, he had a very nasty fall last week and is now feeling very sore and has lost a lot of his confidence.  Love you Dad!! Hope you are feeling better soon!!

I was also spoilt this morning with lots of cuddles from my gorgeous boys and some lovely hand made treasures.

Anyway, enough about me, lets get on to the real reason you stopped by today.......

Wow, there was a record number of entries for last week's linky party. Thank you to all of you who took part. Please scroll down to see who's entry I chose as my favourite.

I have used Digi Papers from our wonderful sponsor this week on my card. This is a first for me and I was pleasantly surprised just how easy they were to use.

This week Make It Monday is sponsorted by

The prize will be 'Polly Anna' Paper collection, a bright colour palette with fabulous modern designs!

Now, because there are just so many fabulous entries each week on the Make It Monday linky party, the Design Team and I have decided that we would each like to feature our favourite entry on our own blogs.

I had a really tough time choosing a favourite this week, there were just so many fabulous entries to choose from but in the end I chose...............

This is such a fun card!! I just love Meljen's Designs images and Deonna has coloured this one perfectly.
Thanks Deonna for sharing with us at Make It Monday.
This week's Make It Monday #42 is now open.
Please hop over over to the Make It Monday blog and check out the featured blogger and random commentor winner.

The fabulously talented Design Team and created some amazing cards to inspire you and if you visit their blogs (and I hope you do!) you will see which entry from last week they have chosen as their favourite.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
