Fancy Folds at Charisma

Good morning. Long time no post and today this is my first of two :o)
Happy Blog Birthday to me - today my blog is officially 3 years old - don't forget I have candy available - see sidebar for details.
But before I share my DT card for 

where the theme is 


I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your visits over the Easter Break when I was away with the family at Centre Parcs - will share some photos at the end of this post. 
I am currently on my way to have a snuggle with my scrummilicious Grand-daughter Lola Arizona and will be back tomorrow - just in time for my squidgilicious Grandson Oliver's 1st birthday.

This is a very simple card I have made for Jack to give to Oliver - with the focus on the image - DSB and the fab bright colours of the Design Paper - DCVW All About Boys stack.

My fold isn't really too fancy - basically a tri-fold stepper card (sort of lol!!!)

Image coloured with PM's and simply mat and layered onto co-ordinating card.

Please pop over to the main challenge blog where you will see far better inspiration from my wonderful DT buddies :o)

So as I said at the start of this post here are some photos from our family break at Centre Parcs:

So hungry :o)

Scrummy chocolate!

Ready for Paint Balling lol!!

Aaron and Oliver (and John in background)

Jack and his friend Rory getting ready for Tree Trekking

They were certainly braver than I would have been!
