Have a Monster Birthday and Music Saves My Soul

Good morning

Hope you are all well on this chilly autumn morning.  I won't have much time for crafting this week because it's half term and the children are at home.  We are going to do some baking later and then take Jake (our border collie) for a long walk. 

Yesterday afternoon Jamie was amusing himself on the Playstation and Chloe was on her laptop so I had a couple of hours to make a card for Claire's son, Daniel, who is celebrating his 13th Birthday on 7th November.  Daniel suffers from Asperger's which means he struggles to socialise and interact with others.  He doesn't have parties so Claire has put a request on her blog asking if people would send Daniel a card to help make his birthday special.

I am also playing along with Marcea's 'Music Saves My Soul'.  The song i'm posting is Candyman by Christina Aguilera.  This is just sooo catchy and such a feel good song.  I will be singing it all day now lol!
