Good Morning Ladies,
Well I had to start off by showing Brenda (littlelamb)'s homage to Sue's card, Brenda yours is just so fabulous in every way, you have put so much love and effort into this card, the flowers are so bright and beautiful, the Ivy looks real, how did you manage that?
The Noble Squares make such a perfect backdrop for you to add all of your pretty flower and foliage bits to! That cute little butterfly is hiding away in the corner, giving that perfect little touch of class.
I think you should be so proud as you have done an amazing job Brenda!
Can I ask you what company your got your 'Happy Birthday' Die from, as I love the font and it is the perfect size for larger cards.
Thank you so very much for allowing me to share your amazing card with our dear friends here in the café Brenda xxxxx
Well an update on yesterday, the car, sadly failed the MOT, I think that the Bill will be in excess of £300, which is just so frustrating! It failed on a Wiper Blade, a rear break light bulb and a the Back passenger side Brake Caliper, which is the 'ouch' part, costing £110 + VAT and then fitting, that's £180 without the MOT fee, the other parts, oil and filter and cost of a intermediate service, a little worse than I was anticipating but that's life! I think that the thing that frustrates Paul is that cars these days are just not designed for you to work on them yourself, he has all the kit, ramps, jacks, tools, but every part seems to have a 'specialist tool' that is required to remove that particular part! Not like in the days we had a Mk 4 Cortina and I have a burgundy Ford Fiesta, gosh those cars just ran and ran with no problems did occur you got your Haynes Manual out and find out what you required to fix the problem, nowadays you have to take it to the local garage for a run on the 'Diagnostic' computer whizzy thing, pay your £40, get your sheet of results and are still none the wiser! Its back on the drive now so I will shut up and wait to see the posty struggling up the road with his huge sack containing our invoice! Maybe I should run a sweep stake on the nearest guess for the final amount to pay, answers below, winner will receive a small gift/card or something!
Somebody suggested that they would like to have a Pet portrait Gallery, if all of you with pets are interested please let me know and we could maybe put it in on Saturday to replace mixed crafts day, I await your decision.
We have the kitty's at the vets tonight for their Annual Booster and a check up, I am so scared about the outcome for my baby Bella as she has developed a lump on her belly, towards the back it seemed as though it was just flabby loose skin to start with, she has been spayed, so not pregnant, although I did wonder as she is eating more too, but otherwise she seems fine, she still wants to play and run about with Milo, but lumps are lumps and always worrying, so another day with 'something on mind',
On that note I will leave you in peace , have a good day whatever you are doing!
Love and hugs to all of you,
