"Happy 21st"

Hello Blog friends, followers and any poppers by.  Thank you for taking time to call in.  If you leave me a massage and have an active Blog I can get back to see what you get up to.  If not I thank you for calling by to see what I have been doing.  I have been a bit slow getting round all the Blogs.  Although the boys (our Grandsons) are back at school I am still very busy with other things at the moment.  I have suddenly got lots of birthdays/anniversaries, plus orders to catch up on.  
Yesterday was spent at a Fundraiser Fun Day for the Junior Football Team that Robert plays for.  John Jnr managed a great deal to get them the "OLD" changing rooms in Newtyle Village Park that the Football Team deserted some years ago.  It was dirty, smelly, falling to bits, had recently been broken into and used by a gang of local youths ...... get the picture???? 
Well folks you should see it now!!!  John, Audrey and most of the parents of the boys & girls of Newtyle United  Junior Football Team have got together.  They have gutted, painted, carpeted, put in a new kitchen and now have wonderful Changing/Club rooms for the team and visiting teams.  Everything has been donated by the parents or the company`s they work for plus a lot of begging round local places. The one thing that still has to be done is:- tiling the shower area, new shower heads and toilets.  I am sure that will all be done with the money raised yesterday.  Have not got the figure but they were very busy all day.   Of course "numpty" here forgot her camera. Hopefully someone somewhere has some pictures to share.
Anyway here is a commissioned card.  Customer wanted nothing too fancy and gave me the spelling for the name.

Base card PMD
Yellow card Creative Expressions, Joanna Sheen
Lace effect is a Die, Joanna Sheen
Ivy Die, Sue Wilson
Wine class from my Stash.  I got that years ago before I even bought my first Die Cutting Machine.  My trusty little CuttleBug which is still in constant use for any smaller Dies I am using.
That`s it for today 
Thank you for calling by I really appreciate that you take time to do that
Till next time
