Sketch Time at Cutie Pies

Good morning.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I decided not to go to the Craft Event at Westpoint in Exeter as I am going to Leeds in a couple of weeks to the Christmas workshop with Dawny P at LOTV and thought it would be better to save my pennies for that.

So I made the most of my time alone and got ahead with quite a few DT makes that I will be sharing with you over the next couple of weeks.

Today I'm here to share my DT card for

Morning Debbs.
Wow Love this card, the bunting is fab and I love the way you have done the separate Happy Birthday on the two edges, looks great. Good image for a boy of 15 too.
I saw that the Workshop you are going to is Full up. Angie and I live about 2 and a half hours from the LOTV shop, but a few weeks ago we had a visit whilst visiting several other places a the same time. Bet the workshops with Dawny P are fab.
