I hope that your first day back into your usual weekly routine went well, Michele I hope your week works out to be a little quieter than you thought. The girls had their first day back at school and came home tired but on a high as they had both received their Spanish exam results and both of them achieved an A*, which is fantastic news, very proud Mum !!
I was shocked to see that Edinburgh and parts of Scotland are now suffering with the floods, we have an about 8 flood warnings here in Oxfordshire, I hope it doesn't get as bad as last time though, it really is so sad watching peoples lives being torn apart, a friend of mine has now been flooded about 4/5 times, to the point that she can no longer get insurance cover, so any damage now comes at tbeir expense, they have made some adjustments in the house to minimise the damage, the frustrating part is they live nowhere near a river, they live on a farm and watch the flood water creeping the field in front of their house, for two years running they lost their entire crop which was the straw for their thatching business, so not only their home got affected, their livelihood was too, so I am hoping that the rain is less than they have forecast, we need a nice warm Spring and Summer to dry up allod this excess water!
It will help with vetting the tourists back to visiting the Lake District too, to help them recover the huge losses they have suffered through loss of business etc!
Now today's gorgeous card is another of my birthday cards, I think it must have asrrkved later than the others as it wasn't in the box with them, I felt awful when I found it yesterday as I hadn't shown with the other cards, it was beautifully designed by our Diane, the photo does not do it justice however, it sparkles beautifully as Diane has used Sue Wilson's 'paper. Grouting' technique with a Glitter Sparkle paste, it looks so effective! Diane has also used Dies from Sue's Californian Collection .
I love this card Diane, sorry I hadn't shown it sooner! Xxx
Well I must get on with my craft room today, I actually could see part of my desk yesterday! I have to be quiet though as my craft room is opposite our bedroom and Paul is on nights, so will be trying to sleep!
Special thoughts to Barbara, Peter, Val and family, also to Sheila, hugs to you all.
Love and hugs
