I have been blogging since 2010. I have been married for 29 years and have three children,I have been blessed with Four Gorgeous Grandchildren. I love making my own cards, but dabble in cake making & crochet too. I enjoy going to Alexander Palace twice a year with my mum. I live in Battersea and have grown up here, although me and hubby's dream is to one day live in Spain.....

Lots a Glitz

Hello my dear blogging friends.

I do have a card for you today ..... keeping up with my New Years Resolution, Lol.

BUT ..... before I share that with you I have a two photos to show ya.

The 1st one is of the Shard, the tallest building in Western Europe. It's a 95-storey skyscraper & opens to the public  on 1st Feb 2013. It cost £25.00 a ticket & I am seriously thinking about it. My hubby will not be able to cope with it, but I am trying to convince my work colleagues (who are my good friends), to come along.
I had to go to Guys Hospital on Tuesday last week to have growth quaterized on my chest. All went well & thankfully I did not feel a thing, lol.

I must say that this photo does not have the same effect as being there!

The next one is of my Grandson Eddy giving his Grandad a cuddle & falling asleep. He is suffering badly with his teething, so wish I could take that pain away!!!

Now on to my card:
