Michele's cards for Captain Tom

Good Morning Ladies, 

Another lovely day here in Wiltshire yesterday,  really sunny, nice enough to eat outside at lunchtime,  the wind picked up as the day went on though, I did wonder if the washing was going to stay on the line.  It blew dry in no time! 
Paul is on an early shift this week, which is lovely as we get a good few hours in the garden.

Today's cards are the cards that Michele has created for Captain Tom Moore, she has made one to send from herself and Phil and the other for her Work Colleagues to sign and send.  The Total amount raised so far is £23 Million, which is mind blowing, what a HUGE achievement. 
Michele's cards are just perfect for a special birthday celebration, I wonder how long it will take for him to open them all !! His family will be very busy. It's a small token of our gratitude for what he has done.
Thank you Michele for sharing your cards, giving us all some inspiration. XXX

How funny is that statement that Michele found, it's so true, I think I have enough craft supplies to last me many years (if i used them sparingly of course)😉🤣 Obviously there are things that we will always NEED to buy, right?? 😅😘

I hope that you all have a good day, lets hope the sun shines again today! 

Love and hugs,



  1. Morning Everyone
    MICHELE-two fantastic cards.

    We have some sunshine to start the day here so I'm hoping the day will warm up so I can have the doors open.

    I have one or two birthday cards to make for the beginning of May so crafting it will be today.

    The CAFE is OPEN ready and waiting for you all to pop in when you can.
    HUGS are on their way to you all.PLEASE TAKE CARE AND STAY SAFE.xxxx

  2. Two fantastic cards MICHELE and I love that saying too It’s a conversation I could well be having with my daughter!
    I am so pleased your mum has been able to get your dad’s death certificate CHERYL and what a terrific idea to celebrate his life on his birthday next year
    I made a card yesterday and a start on this week’s challenge one So I hope to finish that this afternoon and I must must must tidy my craft room up - well my desk at least!
    Take care all xx

  3. Morning Ladies

    My cards were made using a Hunky-dory topper (the car picture) and the second card was made using some vintage papers and my new Happy Birthday die that I just had to have after seeing it on one of Karen’s cards.
    The funny sign did make me laugh-when are we likely to run out of stash?!

    We have a sunny but breezy day here. The funeral is 12:40 so we’re going to we waiting for the hearse to leave the house (no funeral cars allowed I believe) so the family can see us.

    Think I’ll make a card or two this afternoon to give me something to think about.


  4. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. I must apologise for not mentioning your lovely cheerful card yesterday my lovely. A perfect card to say thank you to anyone xx
    Michele both cards are perfect for this wonderful gentleman. I agree with Sandra that he is going to receive an awful lot of cards this year 😁 I hope all goes as well as possible today. I will be thinking of you x
    I will be continuing my craft clear out but will also have to soak up some sun. We have a clear blue sky with quite a brisk breeze at the moment so I hope it dies down a bit.
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for Lynda, Mum and all in need. Take care xx

  7. Hello Sandra and ladies,

    Two great cards Michele, just perfect for this gentleman. Love the sign, it really made me smile.

    Having a sorting out day today, thought I’d have a another go at sorting out shelves in the craft room, they are just working for me. Having said that Michele’s sign hits the nail right on the head - too much stuff in a small area, But I can’t throw it away, can I? I might NEED it ........ one day!!!

    LYNDA lovely to see you in the Café lets have some 🍰 we can celebrate the Queens birthday together, MARGARET, JANET and everyone - come on ladies join us. xx

    Whatever you are doing stay safe , love to everyone Brenda xxx

  8. Hi Sandra and everyone.
