Cream & Black Card & my Birthday cards.

Hi everyone! I had a wonderful  birthday yesterday but I didn't get time to make a card. I had loads of msgs & phone calls. I had two friends here most of the day & we had a play with Embossing Paste and bits but didn't make a card. I bought myself another couple (7) MS punches lol! Off QVC!
Cos I haven't got many!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I received a lovely letter, chocolate & card with a baby scan photo attached from DIL Diana. It's getting exciting now as our 4th granddaughter is due on 1st December so not long now! 
Then my son DIL & granddaughter's came & Adam managed to ring me from Afghanistan so that made my day. My friend came for tea and spent a couple of hours here last night.
 I have some beautiful cards some of them are handmade all are gorgeous.
A very big thank you to everyone who made my day so special.

I used cream Kan Ban card. black Ross card.
I used WOW black twinkle embossing powder.
Chloe's flourish stamp she has lots of new gorgeous designs
Flowers are Spellbinders daisy. Joy small flower. Gems by Dawn till Dusk
Spellbinders Nesties 1 shape.
Black glitter card for the flowers.

I'm entering into the following challenges.
Thank for calling!
xx Jan
