A busy week !

It's been hectic - I ran out of time to join in on Wednesday with WOYWW. I have been busy preparing for a card class here at home. I also had several birthday cards to make plus some gift packaging. There was a cake for my granddaughter's eighth birthday - she ordered a Moshie Monster design :-) 
Yesterday ( Thursday) I was out all day relaxing. My lovely D.I.L. - Sarah organised a Spa Day , there was me, her mum and her sister in law as well. She collected me at 8.30 and we took the girls to school. Then we met with the others and had breakfast out - yummy. Afterwards off to the hotel and Spa. First of all it was tea/ coffee with lovely pastries. Then we changed and went into Jacuzzi, a swim in the pool followed by a sauna. After some time chatting and chilling we had our treatments - I had a facial - so relaxing and skin felt fab . This was followed by a spell in Spa Lounge, lunch, looking at magazines and putting the world to rights :-) 
We then finished with more poolside activities. A wonderful day with lovely company. Lots of smile about - so am going to link up with Friday's Smiles at Annie's blog - astitchintime 
After some difficult times it was a much welcomed diversion. 

Ella and her sister admiring the cake :-)
 Ella had chosen some of her small figures to put on the cake - well washed :-) but she wanted me to make one as well - so I made the big one on the front - called Jeepers I think :-)

Below a card for Sarah's mum - it was her birthday yesterday.

An anniversary card for eldest son and daughter in law.

Birthday card for Sarah - her birthday today!

The birthday cards inspired by some I saw but cannot remember where? 
Off to link up with Annie.
