Flutter - Bye


We had a fabby time in Berlin - doing all the places we had been told to do, including Brandenberg Gates, Checkpoint Charlie, East Side Gallery, Alexanderplatz, Reichestag, but i'm sure nobody mentioned Discovery Centre / Legoland - but i guess that is the joy of having a 6 year old on a trip, you have to find something for them to do as well.
Since are fabby trip though Alan has had a car accident - not his fault, a guy in a BMW company car didn't stop him and went into the back of him and also shoved him so hard he hit the car in front too, so he is feeling a little sorry for himself and also his car, it looks like is going to be written off.
On a lighter i went with a friend of mine to see Strictly Confidental last night and it was great to see Artem with his shirt off :-)

For today's card, i thought i would give the triple oval easel card a go with the help of the lovely Coops tutorial, using the K & Company 'Sparkly Sweet' paper pad, the MS 'Pop-Up Butterfly Punch', the ornate butterflies are Cheery Lyn Designs 'Tiny Things With Wings'.

Glad you enjoyed your break in Berlin, but what horrid news about your hubby, hope he is ok and only the car came off worse, happened to me years ago a week after we bought a new car some idiot drove into the back of me on a roundabout and I ended up being cut out of the car as he shunted me straight into another car on the roundabout car was a write off.
