Hello Friend ...

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and settled back into some sort of routine after the Christmas festivities.

I have been MIA for ages (sorry), but after my Dad's 80th in November everything just snowballed out of control, Christmas was fast approaching and I wasn't prepared at all.  In the end only a very select few received Christmas cards and none of those were hand made (the shame)!  Christmas did happen, but most of it was so last minute ~ not at all like me to be wrapping presents on Christmas Eve. 

One of the exciting things that took a lot of my time was being asked to be editor of The Midland Branch of the Bearded Collie Club annual magazine 'Chinwag'.  I have never done anything like this before and was quite pleased with my first effort.

I have finally (yesterday) ticked the last absolute 'must do' off my list, namely putting my car up for sale.  So, I can relax a bit now and catch up with all the other stuff that needs doing.

So, todays share is a Birthday card for an old friend, who I never see, but we still exchange Birthday and Christmas cards (except for last year) lol.


Card Recipe:

I am itching to get crafting with my newly acquired stash from Christmas and the sales, so watch this space.

Thank you so much for visiting my little blog today and for any much appreciated comments you may leave.
