Where have the last two weeks gone?  I have been creating albeit slowly (the mojo is on a go slow).  Last weekend my scrapping day turned into a preserving day after giving the freezer a long overdue clean out and finding apricots and berries which were not going back in so made apricot sauce and jam and berry jam.  My intentions were to make some fancy labels/covers for them but after a week this had not happened so into the cupboard they went. You can see that the thought was there - I did cut one cover out lol.

This weekend I headed to the deep South to celebrate my Auntie's 70th birthday.  It was lovely catching up on aunt's, uncles, cousins and their families together with the friends whom I stayed with.  I always love visiting Invercargill and the folks there.  The worst part is the long trip home especially if it has to be done in one go but the highlight of the journey home was meeting up with my three daughters and grandson for a coffee in Dunedin on the way home.  That certainly made Mother's Day and they spoiled me - I can look forward to a massage next time I am down there.

Today I will share the birthday card created with Prima Fairy Belle papers and a Prima fabric flower cut from a strip.  The papers were left from a layout I will share soon.

 The little hearts are from Prima.
 Thank you for visiting today, and those who closely follow my blog apologies for the two week gap since my last post. (Promise I will not leave it so long this time.  Thank you E for your lovely verbal comments in the weekend.  It would be nice to know who follows my blog but hasn't yet taken the plunge leave a comment or become a follower so I challenge you to leave a comment and let me know you are watching.

Wishing  you all a great week.  Wrap up warm (if here in NZ) as we are in for a bad patch of weather.

Until next time....
