Michele's Guiness Themed Birthday Card

Good Morning Ladies,

I hope that you are all well, great news from Lynda, the Doctor came around yesterday and had a look at her wound, he was really pleased with it, so fingers crossed she can go home, although she will still have antibiotic IV in for a few days so a nurse will come out every morning to check that all is well, atleast there is light at the end of the tunnel now.  I can't wait for you to get home my lovely xxx

Today's card is the one that Michele made for her Husband Phil for Christmas, Phil is a real Guinness fan so Michele always makes a different Guinness themed card each year either for his Birthday or Christmas.  This one is just brilliant Michele with the 'Guinness Prints' in the snow, your attention to detail shows as you have used the same colours in your mat and layers that appear in the image.
Absolutely Brilliant card my lovely, thank you so much for sharing it with us XXX

I had a very busy day yesterday, fun though, Becca came over and we went shopping and had lunch out, then more shopping the time just flew by, we got home at about 5pm, Becca just unloaded shopping and then left while Soph and Lucy were about to leave for Asda and asked if I wanted to go  with them, I think it was about 8 o'clock by the time I sat down! It was worth the aches and pains to see the smiles on their faces though, I love spending time with all of them .

Sophie asked me to thank you all for your lovely comments, she was overwhelmed by your kindness, thank you so much ladies xxx

Pat is coming over today, I am hoping to sit and finish my Groovi card from class last week, I'm sure Pat will be doing some Groovi too.

I hope that you all have a lovely day

Love and hugs to all



  1. Morning Ladies

    Sandra’s-Thank you for sharing my card. I did have to double check I’d not added a Birthday sentiment-nothing would surprise me at the moment! As you know-Phil lives Guinness so I thought I’d use the image from the latest advert to create his Christmas card.

    Hope you have Crafty fun with Pat today.


  2. Morning Everyon
    Love your card MICHELE.Great Idea.

    Well it's my last K&N day for this year today and we're having a small buffet with no crafting.
    Having said that I still have enough crafting to do before next week.

    Wonderful new LYNDA but please remember NO RUNNING UNTIL NEXT YEAR.lol

    The CAFE is OPEN ready and waiting for you all.
    HUGS are on their way to you all.Take care and stay safe xxxx

  4. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. I missed looking into the blog yesterday but am over the moon to hear of Sophie’s fantastic marks of her uni course. I hope she is as proud of herself as everyone else is. I know I’m biased but I have always said that she has an amazing talent and now it is clear to see that others feel the same. Congratulations and well done Sophie x Sandra, I bet you are glad to have a quiet day today but so well worth it after such a lovely one spent with your girls yesterday. See you tomorrow my lovely xx
    Cheryl, your cards are lovely. The stamp is beautiful and so full of pretty detail x
    Lynda, I do hope that you are settled at home by now or at least waiting packed up and ready to leave hospital now dear friend. Sending you and Terry big hugs xx
    Mum, I know how much you miss being able to cross stitch. Sending big hugs. Love you xxx
    I have to put up / out the rest of our decorations now. Had a lazy start after a lovely day in London with Chris and Gem yesterday. I hope the weather is being kind to you all. Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for Lynda and all in need. Take care xx

  5. Hi Sandra & Ladies
    A lovely card today Michele. I hope that Phil likes it. But what’s not to like if you like Guinness.
    Fingers crossed that Lynda gets home in the next few days.
    Sounds like you had a lovely day yesterday though.

  6. Hello Ladies
    Sorry I haven't been in touch but my phone doesn't hold its charge for some reason
    Only last about a hour. Thank you all for your kind wishes. They are trying to get me on hospital at home program so not sure when A's got to organise a nurse to give me antibiotics via a drip 3times a day for another six weeks. Also they have to get my diabetes injections &a the finger test I have been using the pen in here so I know how to do that. I'm also walking to the toilet myself with walking frame.
    The doctor came yesterday & checked my wound he was pleased that it's not bleeding anymore as it would be another story. As he had to cut so much skin back
    Almost to the bone &are stich it up it is so very sore at the moment it's raw.
    Lisa &a family & Darren & family are coming to us Boxing Day as I won't be able to go to Lisa's for the Christmas A's to far in the car &then the nurse coming. So at least we will get to see them al.
    Well enough of my tale of wow.
    Michele I love your card for Phil it's brilliant I bet he loved it.
    Love to every one all have a wonderful Christmas lots of love Lynda xxxx💕

Tomorrow she has an invitation to Westminster Cathedral for a Charity Christmas concert, she will be with the VIPs (How the other half live!) son in law is going to pick her up for us after in his taxi and bring her home, which will be lovely as it will be getting late.
