Megan's 18th and PC problems

Good evening

Both schools were closed today because of the strikes so I've had a lovely day shopping with Chloe and Jamie.  I managed to get a few Christmas presents and we also had lunch out.  Well I wouldn't say I would class Chloe's as lunch because she opted for Chocolate Cake and Hot Chocolate!!  I wouldn't normally let her have this for lunch but decided to let them have a treat today.  Jamie doesn't like cake so had a Sausage Roll and Diet Coke.  I'm back on my diet after putting on a few pounds at Craftaganza so was very healthy and had a Jacket Potato & Chilli.

I started making this card last night and managed to finish it off when we got home this afternoon.  It's for Megan who is celebrating her 18th birthday tomorrow.  Megan is Chris' cousin's daughter ... not sure what relation that makes her to us!!

For the last few weeks we have been having a few problems with the PC and yesterday it finally decided to stop working.  It has gone off to be repaired so I am having to use the laptop which doesn't have my photo editing software and watermark on it so I apologise for the quality of the picture.

That's all from me ... work tomorrow and Friday and on Saturday we are helping my Mum decorate my Nan's lounge so don't think I'll get a chance to get crafty for a few days.

Fabulous card Lisa, great choice of colours and papers! I think Megan would be your 2nd cousin, or 2nd cousin once removed!
I'm with Chloe re: chocolate cake and hot chocolate for lunch!! Can't beat it!
Hope you get your PC fixed soon.
