Happy Sunday...

 Afternoon Folks,

Hope you are having a lovely weekend. I have been creating this quatro card. Handy tip though, when your brain is too tired walk away from the measuring up !!!! I had a couple of wee disasters with matting and layering last night and it was only cause my brain had switched off!!  Left it till today and although its not much better I managed to get simple things right!! Hurray!!!! 
 This card is for the Boys Gran C. Its her birthday at the start of next month so I am getting myself organised!!! 
 I looked on Pinterest for some quatro fold creations and found this lovely blog. Song Of My Heart. The tutorial was lovely and easy to follow.
 Heres the back of the card with a wee space for our birthday wishes. 
Gings thats quite a picture heavy post today!!! 

Thaks for dropping by my wee bit of blogland,

Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx

This card is for a friend who is off to pastures new.
