"Happy Birthday"

Hello Blog friends, followers and anyone who happened to press a button that got them here.
Welcome to my Blog I love having visitors.  Thank you for taking time to come see what I get up to. If you don`t have an active Blog I am sorry I cant get back to return the favour.  I do appreciate that you come and leave comments.
I have been missing a bit this week.  Been helping John & Audrey, their shifts kind of clash this week, Granny & Grandpa to the rescue.  Boys absolutely no bother, they get themselves up and going in the morning.  I just have to be with them to cover the time that Mum & Dad are not there.   That`s it for another while though.  
I am off over to Hazels tomorrow evening for a "sleepover" in preparation for our journey Edinburgh Airport to catch early flight over to Belfast.  We are there for a few days.  Shopping and sight seeing on Friday.   Saturday my School friend from many years ago (who I still see a lot of) is picking us up to take us to her Dairy Farm for the day.  We will have dinner out in the evening, she will take us back to the Hotel.  Sunday we hope to do the Titanic Experience, then a late flight home.
Here is my offering for today and the next few days:-

Base card 5 x 7 
Pink Lidl card  ... they only have this now and again
White Card
Pink Organza Ribbon from Mieflower
SB Foliage Die for the leaves
Heartfelt Creations Arianna Blooms Die and Stamp Set
I stamped the bottom of the card with the Stamp.    I cut out the Bloom Set in same pink card as the Mat and formed the flower.

That`s it from me
Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till I get back from my trip
Have a great weekend

    This weekend in Birmingham You & Hazel are planning is it for everyone or just a small circle of friend who you talk to on your blogs? I have mentioned it a couple of times to different people but no reply so I am guessing its for a small circle of friends so I do not wish to intrude if this is the case, but would like more info if its not lol!
