"Happy 90th Birthday"

Good Morning all, glad to have you pop in.  Thank you for calling by and leaving all your wonderful comments.  It makes it so much more fun to pick ones self up and keep crafting. 
 I have found my "Get up and Go"  so back to normal.   Although John say`s that`s impossible because I was not normal before................see what I have to put up with!!!!   He knows I am better, the kitchen is messy again.   I keep telling him....."Creativity is MESSY and I am very Creative"  have to tell him something,.  That`s my excuse for the messy kitchen and I am sticking to it.   He really does not mind thank goodness for that.
Once I get the house done we are off to fill the cupboards again, run out of Cheese, Bread, Milk, and Pizzas......................the boys were here!!!!!

Today`s card is for my Old Lady in the village.  She phones me when she needs a card, tells me the kind of thing she wants and John delivers it when he collects the paper.  Mind you sometimes I get a call at 9am and she needs the card to give to Lawrence the Post Man at 12.30.  Luckily she never needs anything too fancy.

Base card Centura Pearl 5 x 7 approx  
White card embossed with Spellbinder Folder
Image from one of Joanna Sheens CDs 
The image was in the Image Box, I found it when I was looking for the baby one for Friday`s card so I don`t know which CD it is from
I popped a few stickle drops on the rose and leaves
Sentiment done on the computer
I did the wiggly edge round the image as I felt it looked a bit lost

Hopefully I can get something else done from the Project Book later today.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling in I really do appreciate it

  6. Hi Patricia, this lovely. So simple and almost pure. I really must dust off my CD's and see what I've got in there. I haven't touched them for a few years now. However, I do have a card making programme and very occasionally I will use an image from that. Thank you for your kind comments on my gift bag and roses. I really did enjoy making it. One of my Australian friends has asked for the link to your tutorial - you're going global girl!! How exciting is that? I've just sent it to her. Hope you have a good day. Love from Christine xx

    Please say hello to Hazel, she left a lovely comment on one of my blogs. It's so nice she does that, tell her not to work too hard, although probably not much chance of that looking after children.
