Can't believe it!

Well I just can't believe it's been a week since I've been on here, where does the time go. To be honest it's been a struggle today to get this posted but I'm determined to do some blogging today. I have a problem with my eyes (dry eye syndrome) and it really is a pain, in more ways than one when they are playing up which they have the last few days. It makes it difficult to look at the computer screen. Don't want you to think I'm looking for sympathy but just wanted to explain part of the reason I've been abscent.
I did manage to get a couple of cards made for my friend Ann who became a Nanna for the first time last week to a gorgeous baby girl Lily Mae. The Nestie shaped one is for Ann. I created the card shape by scanning the largest Nestie label shape and enlarging it in word to use as a template. All the stamped images are from the Crafters Companion Cute Companion stamp sets and have been coloured using some pearly watercolours.
The Baby card is for Anns daughter and husband. The letters are from the Crafters Companion Cute Companions CD. As the letters aren't this large on the CD, I accessed the jpeg images by opening My Computer right clicked on the CC CD and clicked on open. I opened data and then Alphabets, then copied & pasted the letters I wanted into Word and resized. The papers are from the CD and I also used stamped images of the mice inside the card. Unfortunately I forgot to take pics of the inside but I used the same images as on the other card.

Yesterday my daughter and I had a girly day out and went to see We Will Rock You at Birmingham Hippodrome. I had seen it in London but enjoyed it just as much. I was able to use my OAP free travel pass on the train and got a reduction on the show ticket so there are perks to being 60!!!
Right better try and get around a few blogs now and I do apologise for not visiting this past week.
Take care all
Love, Pat xx
