"Card for a Sketch"

Hello and welcome, hope you are all well, safe and dry.  
Thank you for calling by "The Ranch" today.   All quite on the Eastern Front of Perthshire .......we have the most wonderful weather here today.  Sun was shining its little heart out, clear blue skies, little or no wind.   Makes the world a much brighter place.  Met Hazel and our friends this morning.  Great catch up of chat, every one was saying how wonderful it was to get back into the old routine.  The only problem is..........there are getting more and more ladies wanting to join us for Wednesday Morning Coffee.  We started out just Hazel and I, we kept meeting 3 other ladies in the same place so we decided to join up.   It was like that for quite a while, just before before Christmas we had another lady join us ......... well!!! she brought her friend along today.  We have decided to look for somewhere else to have our coffee.  Somewhere they might have a big "round" table so the the conversation can flow better.
Anne our friend who had the Breast Operation is doing very well and looks good, fingers crossed she is now well on the road to full recovery.
Mrs Duck ......Love your definition of OLD ......  Not old,  just seen more Sunrises........brillient
I had a lovely comment on my "white on white card" from Donna Nunce.......obviously had to click on to see what she did.  She is ....

  17. Hi Patricia
    Glad you had some time with the Sun on your face. You and Hazel are smashing girls so that's why they all want to join The Posse.
    Thank you for joining in at HOC. Your card is fab, colours and the design. Sadly, when I try shabby chic it just looks shabby and something that sounds similar to chic lol !
    Ooh, before I forget, popped into Lidl for some flowers this morning and they had the 25 sheet card pads again at £1.79 this. Think they may be left covers from last time but I got a couple to show willing.
    Best wishes.
