Bee Better

Hi all,

What a busy week I've had, finally I've arrived at the last day of my working week. Tomorrow I'm off to celebrate my parents' 50th wedding anniversary with them! This week, the theme for the Delightful Challenge is "Buttons, Bling & Embellishments". I can't believe I did it again and managed to forget an element of the challenge theme, as you will be hard pressed finding a button on my card. My memory is really all over the shop! At least I got the bling and the embellishments right, two out of three ain't bad :)

The image I used it part of the new range for March, there have been a lot of people under the weather lately so a very useful image to have right now I think :)
