"Birthday Card"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who has landed while Blog hopping.  Welcome to my wee corner of Blogland, great to have you here.   I know I land in some wonderful Blogs.  When I visit  Blogs I follow I sometime see a name I don`t know and click on it.  My goodness doing this can take you on a wonderful journey.  Once I have looked at the work on that Blog, I click on another name to see what they do........then on and on.  I look at the clock to find I have been doing that for ages but have seen some fascinating work on the way.
Tell you what folks, John slept really well last night.  Two bike rides, one 7 miles, Thomas and John set off for that approx 11.30am.   A long walk through the woods after lunch,  then other bike ride approx 5 miles at 4.30pm.    John had a very lazy morning/afternoon, in preparation for a very busy evening.  We had a Birthday Tea for Thomas along at J & As.  After a very hearty meal all the boys were out in the garden playing football, showing off the new Football Strips Thomas & Robert got plus a new Football.  Fun, fun, fun, Audrey and I had a good old chat while clearing up, getting things back in order in the house. We were making plans for when the boys are off school for "half term" in a few weeks time......... OMG!! how time is flying by!!!
It was my friend Elaine`s birthday on Friday here is the card I made for her:-

Base PMD card approx 5 x 7
SW Austrian Collection Background Die
SW Finishing Touches Delicate Daisies - open petals
MB Foliage
Waste from Dies and punches for the little flowers
Computer generated greeting on the banner (don`t know the Die)
Pearls and heart from my stash

That`s it for today
Thank you for your visit and all the lovey comment you leave, I really appreciate it
Till next time
