Sweet Sixteen - Pt.1

Good afternoon. Hope you are all keeping well and those not I wish well soon :o)
Wow we've had some rain overnight and this morning - it has eventually stopped now - not sure for how long though!! The 'green' outside our house looks like it has a swimming pool in the centre of it - hope it doesn't fill up anymore :o(

Oliver has been to play this morning and I thought I would pop on to share my card for today before I leave for a check up at the hospital - for my 'golfer's elbow' which seems to be so much better since my last Cortisone injection :o)

Kerry (Oliver's Mummy) has twin sisters who will be 16 next month and she asked me to make a couple of cards for them - so as the post title says - here is Sweet Sixteen Pt1 (I'll share Pt2 later in the week)

 I thought it would a good opportunity to ink up one of my long neglected LOTV images and as this week's challenge over at Lil's Little Fairies is Food Glorious Food I thought this little sweetie would be just perfect :o)
 Image: Cake Glorious Cake coloured with PM's and FM's and lots of Diamond Stickles
Sentiment - LOTV

It's still raining here, not stopped all day and it's been really heavy rain. I'm back off to my Mums tomorrow so I hope it stops by then!
