"Happy Birthday Mia"

Hello Blog Friends,thank you so much for calling in today.  
What started out here as a rotten morning, soon changed.  Approx 9.30am the sun came out and we have had a very nice day if rather windy.  Great for drying the clothes, all done, ironed and put away. 
John and I took off around 10am. had day away, of course there just happened to be some shops.  I had to buy a few things.   A day away without buying would be no fun.   Sitting in the car on the way home, was rather annoyed with myself (you know the feeling I am sure) for not buying a beautiful leather bag I saw in a wonderful shade of pink.......   Mind you I need another handbag like a "big hole in the head" but it was very nice.
It was Elaine`s granddaughter Mia`s 1st birthday yesterday, this is her card.   I don`t buy gifts for any of Elaine`s grandchildren they get so much.  I just put some money in the card, they can do what they like with it.

Base card 6x6 white card
Pink shiny paper I got in a pack some time ago
White card embossed with an Anna Griffen Folder

Till next time

    a very cute card. Isn't she a little cutie. So apt for a one year old. Love your design as always. Fab shinny paper. Great idea the bow in the hair.
    Now us girls need plenty of bags and shoes, but I know the feeling you have described. lol.
    Have a wonderful crafty day.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. So pretty. Handbags are a waste of money, rather buy crafty goods. LOL xxxx

  10. Morning Patricia,
    Such a pretty card, love the little bow in her hair,

  16. Super card Patricia, such a cute image, glad you had a good day Carole Z xx

  17. Great card and such a cute image. I'm afraid I would not have gone home without the bag. Some people like shoes - my passion is bags and purses.

  18. Hi Patricia
    Gorgeous card. That embossing is fab. I have to hold my hand up to a handbag fetish. I keep mine in the cloth bags they come with and then in a large airtight container . . . . .seriously, its that bad. But hey, a girl needs something to carry the money and then the crafty goodies in! x

  19. Hi Patricia.
    absolute gorgeous card and image.
    hugs to you.

  23. Have just been on Ang's blog and I have to say I am ashamed of you Patricia! Who told you that you had enough shoes and bags? Don't you know you can never have enough of either! I am going to have to give you a serious talking to in November!! :)
