Oldie For Friday. . . . . . . . . .

Good morning everybody. Hope you are happy and full of the joys of Spring. 

We have been very lucky this past couple of days, with glorious warm sunshine. Its a joy to see all the green shoots and buds and all the birdies flitting about. 
Mr B, our resident blackbird has been a busy boy feeding their first brood of the year. He still invites himself into the house if the kitchen door is open and he has run out of grapes on the bird table.

Now that reminded me of one of my favourite oldies. This was one of the first cards I showed on my blog when I started blogging 3 years ago. It was for my dear friend David's birthday. He is really green fingered and his garden is a floral delight.
So, I had to do my first handmade card for him with a floral theme.

Lots of flower dies used on this one................but you all know I love my flowers.

And the the little fella that reminded me of this card, the cheeky Mr B !!!

And, lastly, a little fuchsia action.

Its David's birthday again soon but as its a special one this year, he'll be Down Under on the day (as in Australia.........I, know how a couple of you girlies minds work lol!!!)
As the young man does read my blog, I won't show this year's card until after the momentous day.

I will be back at the doctors today for my x-ray results after a morning at the hospital with Mr D. Poor thing is having a wisdom tooth out but done by a maxillofacial surgeon as one of his facial nerves is wrapped around the root. . . . . . . . . .we like to get our money's worth out of the NHS at the minute lol!!!

Hope you all have a great day and wonderful weekend.

Ps......I will rustle up a bit of a tutorial for my last card as requested by a couple of you good folks.
