Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all got through those strong winds without any damage yesterday, Paul had to recover the cabbages a couple of times as the fleece worked its way free, apart from that we were ok, I got two loads of washing dry too, which was a real bonus, I can tell you that I had serious doubt as I was pegging it on the line as the clouds were so dark, we must have been on the edge of it though as we didn't get any rain.
I didn't get much done yesterday, as you all predicted and I expected I was very sore, it was worth it though to see Mum's face, she loved it when we all sang Happy Birthday to her, she loved all her gifts too. Bless her she really looks like she had aged this past couple of months. She must have asked all of us for the same gifts as we all bought her elasticated waist trousers, I bought black linen ones and a lovely white t-shirt, my sisters got her the soft cotton ones that look a bit like pyjama bottoms, lovely patterns though, I think they are super comfy, Mum obviously does too, she had a lovely pile of new clothes. We didn't stay too late as mum looked exhausted, I think she was a little overwhelmed, going from seeing nobody to having a house full was a lot to deal with for her I think. I think we were all on edge as none of us had been in a group of people from different homes before, we took every precaution we could though.
Today's card is Brenda's Challenge card, I didn't get it downloaded in time to add it on Sunday so I am sharing it today.
Such a lovely card Brenda, perfect for so many occasions too, from Weddings to Exam Congratulation's and many other in between! The die set that Brenda has used for this card is John Next Door's Additions Die collection ...
I have added a picture of the die set as some of you might be interested in buying it, I love the fact that is has so much added detail including the words that Brenda has used, it adds so much fun to the card too.
Brenda's card would work well for our next challenge too with that lovely embossed background. The folder works brilliantly with that die set too Brenda.
Thank you so much Brenda for taking part in the challenge and for sharing such a lovely challenge card XXX
I am off for a Blood Test this morning so I need to put my 'Big Girl' pants on, I absolutely hate blood tests, (i know nobody loves them) I am going to try having a sweet drink before I go this time as thats what the nurse suggested last time, because I don't like to part with my blood! Not sure what sweet drink I will have though as I hate sugar in tea, may have a hot chocolate or a latte.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all of you,
