Birthdays at MAWTT

Good morning. I'm running late with my post this morning - I have come down with a rotten cold - seriously sore throat and generally feeling miserable - sorry :o(
I was supposed to be going the the hospital today for a nerve conduction test but I have decided to rearrange my appointment - luckily they could do it for two weeks time.

I am also having an unexpected (but very much welcome) visitor coming for a few days - my scrummilicious Lola Arizona. Unfortunately her Mummy's Grandad is not very well and has only got a short time left and understandably Katy wants to spend all her time at the hospital and to be there for her Mum :o(
So I best get on and cheer myself up for Lola coming later.

So the real reason I'm here is to share my DT card for 

and this week it's the turn of Team B to share our inspiration 

Our lovely leader Hazel has picked a fabulous simple theme

The DT got to play with some images and here's what I came up with:

Seam Binding and Pearls from stash
Antique Linen Distress Ink

Please pop over to the main challenge blog and check out the awesome inspiration from my lovely DT buddies - we have some new DT buddies joining us this week too - please make them feel welcome :o)

Hope you are keeping safe and warm.
Have a fabulous day.
