Your card has something of the tango about it this week! I love the row of circles with just the one decorated with that gorgeous flower.

Your mum's party looks fab! Belle doesn't look so tiny to me but what would I know! And I don't know about vodka jellies but I have come across tequila ones... although strangely I don't remember a great deal about it! Vx

Kathleen said...

What a stunning card, I just love it.
I feel like I am running round in circles this week, so much to do and make and getting nowhere fast.

Glad I wasn't at your MUm's party as I am TT.
Well till 9 p.m. at night that is when I have a glass of wine or two.
