Lavinia Stamps - card for my one of my lovelies!

My darling daughter number one, Holly, was 26 last week and this is the Lavinia Stamps card that I made for her birthday.  I had to watch a couple  of Tracey's tutorials on brayering as I kept getting it wrong but love how it turned out in the end. 
We had a girls night out on Friday to celebrate and went to this fabulous jazz club called Hideaway in Streatham. Holly's cousin, Bel, and my 80 year old MIL also came and it was brilliant.  They had Sharon D Clarke (of Holby City (UK) and We Will Rock You (the queen show) and she was amazing!!  We also saw a guy called Liam Tamne who was just awesome (was on The Voice here in the UK) - he had the most amazing falsetto!  What a great night, so close  to home - picture below of the birthday girl(on the right) and my other daughter, Emily.

The next picture is of the card with the tag on that I wrapped around the middle, appropriate sentiment for my musical lovely! 
I've not been about much recently, what with birthdays, house valuations and now my son has just gone up to the Lake District for a few months to live as he has got a job in a hotel up there, change of direction for a while!  One day he heard about the job, and the next he was on the train!  Hoping he'll find life more fulfilling and peaceful in that beautiful landscapexx
That's all for today - hope you've enjoyed the glorious weekend here in the UK!
