I was feeling a little tired and fed up yesterday, it just seemed a long day, then the Postie came and the mail landed with a loud thud, most of the pile was birthday cards for Becca's upcoming 21st Birthday, but at the bottom of the pile there was an envelope addressed to me, I hastily opened the envelope and found this beautiful card from my lovely friend Lynda, just to cheer me up and send me hugs, how kind and thoughtful, I think that these are definitely the best cards to receive, as they are totally unexpected, so take you by surprise!
Lynda thank you so very much, you put the biggest smile on my face and lump in my throat, you are such an amazing friend, thank you so much.
The card is just amazing, the roses look etched and are like decoupage, look totally amazing yet really hard to describe. The row of mini dazzlers really balances the card, I love the Phyll Martyn Sentiment too.
Thank you once again Lynda xxx
Now ladies I hope you haven't all spent your retreat money on the new 'Todo' machine, I know it was tempting at such a low price! We will however get to hear all about what its really like through
Lynda, as her rich friend has bought one, I hope she has more success with that than she did her 'Cut n boss' Lynda!
I still think that if you were going to go for Foiling machine, you would be better off with the ones that work with Toner and Laser printer, because with those you can just photocopy any image, anyone's name, any greeting as many times as you like, you could even get away without the printer as you can take your pieces to the Library to be copied as they tend to use the Laser printers, whereas these hot foil thinks can only be 'hot foiled' with the dies that you buy, this is very limiting and unless you pay for a bespoke die you cant just make a card with anyone's name on!
That's my opinion anyway, what do you all think?
Well we have a very busy weekend, Paul's parents are coming on Saturday and staying until Monday, we are going for a meal with Becca for her birthday on Sunday as she is leaving for Paris on the morning of her birthday to spend a few days with Josh, she is doing all the sites and we have paid for her to go to Disneyland as she is a big kid at heart and that was top of her list!
Sophie and Lucy have a football tournament on Sunday too!
So I will keep you updated over the weekend.
Have a lovely weekend my lovelies,
Love and huge hugs
