Shopping Nikki!

Good morning

Wow looks like it's going to be another gorgeous day ... hope the sun is shining in the Lake District because Chloe is there on a school trip.  She went yesterday morning and is coming back Friday evening.  She went off fine (no tears) but her BFF was in floods ... bless her.  The school has organised lots of fun activities so I hope they are all having a fantastic time!

Today's card is for our friend's daughter, Rimini, who will be 16 next Tuesday.  Coincidentally she shares the same birthday as our son, Jamie, who is going to be 7!  As soon as I saw this fab Shopping Nikki image (available from Ladybug Crafts Ink) I knew it would be perfect for Rimini's card.
