Mon Amour & spellbinders

Good evening, what a busy hectic week I have had. Work super busy due to stocktake.... Here's a picture of me and my best craft buddy & work mate Maria, this was taken at 02.45 in the morning outside work. 

Talking of Maria it was her birthday Thursday and I made her a card and matching gift bag from the wonderful DT parcel I got from jones crafts. I used g45 mon amour. It has the prettiest papers...

We celebrated by friends going out to Nandos for a meal...

A really lovely day but bittersweet as also the same day as my little brother passed away...19 years ago. I dedicate this post to my love for him.
