Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and are ready for the weekend, the weather isn't supposed to be great sadly but that is a good excuse to stay in and craft.
Next Weeks Challenge
I thought that it would be nice for us all to make 'Thank You' cards for our Challenge this week, I have left a Thank You card for our Post man and for the driver that delivers for Amazon, I even took one to the ladies in the Pharmacy the other day too. Just a small token but our Postie was so grateful to have a little something to collect and his face lit up when he opened it.
You can make your card designed specifically for a certain service, I have started playing with an 'Eclipse' style card with the letters NHS.
I wonder if you can get an address of the NHS direct office as those people are seriously over worked and I'm not sure that they get the praise and thanks that they deserve as they are often the front line as far as calling is concerned and can certainly stop you worrying unnecessarily!
We all have so much to be thankful for in these trying times.
I hope you like this Challenge idea.
I have included the address for this remarkable Gentleman on today's post as I thought that some of you might like to make and send him a Birthday card, I think the figure he had raised the last time I looked was in excess of £15 Million pounds !!!
What an incredible achievement, it's hard to believe that he is almost 100 and not long had a new hip, he is an inspiration to us all. The address is on the picture above.
I had a looong day yesterday as I sat making the 'Save The Date' cards that I have been putting off!
I sat and tied 80 tiny twine bows, made 80 tiny envelopes. I then had to die cut the each one of the little cards and glue the twine bow to each one and after it had dried I had to attach a tiny yellow rose to the centres of each bow! As I am writing this I have yet to complete the 'assembly' stage, I have a load of the cards sat with their bows drying on the coffee table waiting for their flowers to be added.
I will be sharing a photo of them when they are completed.
Before I finish them though I have to go and cook the Teryiaki Salmon that I have been marinating all afternoon, I made the sauce at lunch time, I was going to serve it with buttered new potatoes and Tenderstem Broccoli 🥦 which seems to have become a favourite veg in our house! But the girls fancied Egg Fried Rice with the broccoli instead, so I precooked the rice earlier, it will only take me a few minutes to pull the whole meal together when Paul gets in, it's quite a light tea too, which is better when we are eating later.
Phew I just looked at the time and had to high tail it to the front door to clap for the Keyworkers & NHS. It's odd as it seems like we have only been doing it for a couple of weeks and the first one was in total darkness.
Our village really goes to town with the Church bell ringing, car horns, air horns, gongs and bells, as well as whistles and hoots, it gives me Goosebumps!
Enough waffle for one day!
Have as great a day as you can in the circumstances,
Sending HUGE hugs and Love to all of you,
PS. I want to say a Huge THANK YOU to all of supporting the Blog everyday 💛💜❥
