Katie's Birthday!

HI there, I hope you are all well. I'm managing to get my crafting done, I was a bit worried if I would manage to keep up with my DT commitments, now that I am looking after Harvey whilst Katie has gone back to work. Its been a few weeks & everything is going ok at the moment lol!! I really am enjoying our time playing & going for walks. I know Katie is always so happy when I take him to meet her from work. His little face, so cute!!

Anyhoos I'm here to share my latest 'A Place To Start' creation with you. I made this card last month for our Katie's 23rd birthday off Harvey.. He has a bunny plushie that goes everywhere with him. Even at 8.5 months he drags him around by his ear. So thats why the bunny on the front!
Our theme over at 'A Place To Start' for the next month is......


you can find a picture of the shapes to choose from here or at the end of my post!

I decided on hexagon, I just love the honeycomb pattern so it seem the perfect choice for my card.
