Good morning folks. Hope all is hanging well?
Nothing different to report on the ankle front. Just waiting for my orthotic heel cups as recommended by the podiatrist and I also have some painful exercises to perform so hopefully things will start to improve.
Now, I think I may have mentioned that I had a few 70th birthday cards to make recently (those soldiers were busy when they returned from the war lol!!!),
This is the one I made for our friend Janet. Her and her hubby now live in Spain but they came over to the UK to have a celebration with family and friends.
Pink card (the roses are made from 2 slightly different shades)
SB Bitty Blossoms (what else lol?)
Sue Wilson Jacobean Floral embossing folder
CE Stitched Bunting Numbers stamps
Hobbycraft little flourish stamp
CE double sided pink ribbon
Thin white ribbon dyed with Victorian Velvet DI
CE jelly tot bling
Dovecraft teeny bling
And some beautiful diamante cupcake chain purchased from Samuel Taylors stall at the NEC (£1 for 60cm and its gorgeous and I wished I had bought loads more!!!)
I was really pleased with how this turned out. I love doing channel set flowers.
Thank you for your comments on the lilac. We are lucky that ours has 2/3 flushes of flowers during the year.
I'll try and get some more photos taken shortly.
Well, I hope you all have a brilliant weekend. I shall, of course, be watching the GP highlights (sadly not a live race on Channel 4 this week) and today is my birthday.
Not got anything planned due to the incapacity but looking forward to a nice vindaloo with all the trimmings from the very good local takeaway for tea. My pressie from Mr D comes in July when we go to Silverstone.
That's me for now.
Ps..........Don't forget Mr Lockwood is back on Hochanda Monday evening and during the day Tuesday with his new stamp sets. He may have some different samples, nudge nudge, wink wink!!! And Happy Birthday to Wendy for yesterday.
