'Special friend'

Hello friends! How are you doing? I hope you are having a good weekend.

Here is the card I made for a blogging buddy and friend who celebrated a birthday this week. I can now show you her card and I have it on good authority that she liked it...phew!!!

The background stamp is anew acquisition (big word) from Uniko Studio...that I bought at Port Sunlight last weekend, and the sentiment is from another Uniko set as is the Gerbera! I decided to keep it tone on tone and of course out came the Glamour Dust on the Gerbera just to lift it a bit. I kept it all pretty flat for posting.

As the Gerbera was cut from a snippet I will head to the Playground while the sun is still shining and join in the to lose some weight somehow ( I wish...yes both lose weight and skip!!!!)

Well it's been a same old , same old week here this past week and another month is hurtling past my ears far quicker than I would like! .....a hint of summer one day this week temperature wise...may be that was it(summer I mean)...I have come to the conclusion summer clothes are really a waste of time...whenever I go on holiday the photos show me wearing the same clothes from 5 years ago!! no not to buy something different...not have my photo taken instead...cheaper! and I don't like pictures of myself these days either.

I see from blogland that a lot of you have been very productive of late..well done.... there are some truly wonderful creations out there. Thank you so much for visiting me, hugs and special thanks to those who leave me love in the form of a comment...I love to read them.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend...see you soon!

Time for 'Tee' !

Hello everyone! How did it get to Thursday this week?...and May too? That's a third of the year gone!!...(sorry)..... Anyway hope you all enjoyed the bank Holiday weekend last weekend (in the UK that is)...aaah that's why it's should only be Wednesday in my book...back to normal next week, at least till the next one at the end of the month. :)

Today is my eldest son's birthday..and here is the card I made for him.......

inside reads...'Hope you have a TEE-riffic Day'.
He seemed pleased with it...he likes the CAS look.

The sentiment is computer generated and the dies are Tonic the embossing on that golf ball.! Unfortunately he is spending his day working and so no golf for him today.

Today has been a lovely sunny day here in West Yorkshire...but very I took advantage of the good drying day and went mad washing what I could lay my hands on....I I have the inevitable pile (not too big though) of ironing as a

Visiting port Sunlight on Saturday and meeting friends for tea...I am sure I will buy something even though I don't need anything...will keep you posted. Hubby will need something to carry!

Thank you for popping in......I'll have the kettle on next time...or the wine ready...right now hubby wants his tea, so best go and cook it!!
Thank you for all the lovely comments you left me on my last post re my background are all so supportive and it made me feel much better about it. Hubby said he thought it was meant to be like that who can argue with that?

Will rush to the Playground this week as all the dies were cut from snippets on this card, and will see if there is anything else to join in too.

Take care everyone...and thanks again for calling. See you soon.
