Hi folks. Hope this finds you all ok and not too wet.
Apologies for being missing for a few days but its been a mixed week. On the good days, I've been pottering in the garden getting my veggies and herbs planted in pots. Couple of not so good days but probably as a result of my pottering.
Then a group of us were supposed to be having a lunch out for mine and my pal Davey's birthdays but sadly Davey's brother passed away suddenly so a very sad time for my dear friend. I know he reads the blog, so I hope he won't mind me mentioning it. Big hugs to you chuck.
The clocks have also been delivered and mum Lucia loved them. Lilia seemed genuinely thrilled with hers and Luca smiled and jabbered in baby speak ............ hopefully in appreciation lol!!!
I will show you their new home card on my next post.
I did mean to mention, some of you thought of doing football team themed clocks. . . . . if you do, I would suggest you don't blog them as football clubs are very precious about copyright of their logos etc and will, apparently, sue. Same goes for Disney and suchlike, so beware.
Now, today's card I made some months ago for a very lovely lady called Joy. Joy is one of John's Breedon ladies whom I had met a few times at CE Towers when I was Debbie McGee to John's Small Daniels.
Towards the end of last Summer, after hearing that I was poorly, Joy very kindly made me this beautiful quilt to keep me snug in my chair.
It has kept me toasty warm during the Winter and has been the envy of Mr D. I made the card pretty much straight away but hadn't got round to blogging it until now. I met up with Joy again at Breedon last month and asked her if she would mind me showing the quilt on the blog and she was happy for me to do so. Thank you once again Joy for your kindness.

I really loved making this card as you know I adore making floral creations and I certainly went mega floral with this. Happy to say, Joy loved it too and she told me she had framed it. What a complement.
Thank you for the comments about my birthday cake. Mr D got it from Asda. I'm surprised how many of you have Custard Creams as your favourite biccys too.
Lastly, after spooking some of you with the spider pic last time (I don't like em either but these are just baby garden spiders and as long as they stay in the garden, thats fine lol!!!) and after teasing June and Maureen with the wisteria, I have a happy snap of craft goodies I spent some of my birthday pennies on. It was an on line shop as no craft show in the locale until July.
Yes, I know there are more First Edition pads but at £5.50 for both, it would have been rude not to have given them a loving home.
That's me for now folks. Have a lovely weekend and a great week ahead.
I'd like to enter this card in crazy 4 challenges c4c388 challenge ..... use 3 of something on your card.
