My Beautiful Birthday card from Lilian


Good Morning Ladies, 

I hope that you are all well, this week seems to be whizzing by but thats probably because we have so much to organise and think about at the moment. Yesterday was a full day,  we were all mentally and physically exhausted by late afternoon.  

Today I am sharing the beautiful Embroidered  card that I was lucky enough to receive for my birthday from Our Lilian, it has so much beautiful detail, I am going to pop it in a little frame and put it in my craft room. The background card that Lilian has used really picks out all of the shades of blue.                                                                              Thank you so much for Lilian for such a beautiful gift XXX 

We are having haircuts today, that's all we have planned though, I will have to make a lot of phone calls to let everyone know  what date Mum's funeral is. 

I hope that you all have a lovely day, 

Love and hugs to all of you, 

Sandra                                                                              xxxxxx 


  1. Morning Ladies

    Sandra-what a gorgeous card, perfect to be framed and kept in you craft room. Lilian is a very talented lady.
    Glad to hear you don’t have much planned for today.

    I’m off into work early as we have some testing to do today which is quite time consuming if it’s started when the rest of the staff are in the Unit. I’m hoping I can finish early-fingers crossed.


  2. WOW! What a stunning card LILIAN No wonder SANDRA wants to frame it
    I am glad you managed to sort some things out yesterday I hope you are having help with the phone calls Please try and relax at some point today Your body and mind needs it
    I had a really terrible night - worse than the usual bad night of sleeping So I will definitely being having s few cat naps today
    Take care all xx

  4. Hi Sandra & ladies
    A lovely card from Lilian for your birthday.
    Glad you hear you got what needed to be sorted at your Mums. Hope your sisters help with the phoning today.
    Take care & stay safe everyone

  5. Hello All, it’s another lovely day here, hope it’s a bit cooler today( can’t believe I saying that).

    Glad you liked my card, I’m getting used to my new machine so making card fronts.
    The background I’d washi tape.

    Sandra glad you managed to get all the important things done yesterday, try and get some time for your self.

    Well I’m off to dead head the flowers before it gets too hot, bath mats on the line, they take ages to try, they tumble twist, don’t know if you remember them.

    Have a good day, enjoy these last few days of summer, Karen hope you catch up on your sleep. Hugs to all, Lilian

  6. Afternoon ladies,

    Gorgeous embroidery Lilian, I'm still getting to know my Husqvarna Topaz embroidery machine. One day at a time.

    Jamie is now back to work on light duties and I have finally won my game of snakes and ladders albeit with still a lot to sort out mentally.

    On a lighter note Pete has bought me a beautiful birthday present this year, (I set aside some money from his estate to purchase one every year) It's the We R Memory Keepers the Cinch along with various ready to punch book covers and extra wire grips for the bargain price of £60 from Craft Declutter site. I've been hummin and haa-ing about one for a long time so when this came up I grabbed it quick. 20n mins it was on the site then into my basket. One of the quickest purchases made by me. I am keeping it until the 26th before opening it and having a play.

    Maria.......thank you for your lovely supportive comments on Facebook, I really appreciated you taking the time to reach out.

    Enjoy your afternoons, I'm finally able to go to the Garden of Rest to 'chat' with my Pete.

    Love 7 hugs
    Cheryl xxx

    1. Had to look up your "present" and it looks great for making your own memory books etc. Glad your back, you have been missed. Good Jamie is better, he has had a tough time too. Take care x

  7. Hi everyone
    Beautiful card from Lilian, will look stunning in a frame.
    Glad you got everything sorted yesterday. Hopefully you can have a more relaxing day today and feel pampered having your hair cut.
    Another lovely sunny day here, although more of a breeze, but still warm
    Hope everyone is having a good day. Hugs to all xxx

  8. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today. What a fabulous stitched card Lilian. The colours you have used are beautiful. I’m not surprised you are going to frame it and put it in your craft room Sandra.
    I hope you are able to sit in the garden and relax in between phone calls after having your hair cut my lovely as I bet you’re not up to much else xx
    Brenda, how is your sister doing? I hope she’s on the mend x
    Karen, sorry you didn’t sleep well last night. Let’s hope tonight is a better one for you x
    Lilian, I hope the builders don’t get stuck on another job again. That is so annoying for you and R x
    Sending love and hugs to you all with extras for Lynda, Mum and all in need. Take care xx

  9. Hi Sandra and ladies

    I lost my comment just now
    SANDRA i hope you got a lot sorted out yesterday and that you booked the date for the funeral did it all go smoothly. HOW ARE YOU FEELING my lovely did you have a good night's sleep Sandra last night
    A lovely day of sunshine again.
    Hug's Lynda xx xx
    Wishing you all a good evening

    1. Lovely to see you in Lynda. How are you doing? Hope you got some help for the pain you having, not easy to live with. Hugs for you and CU xx

  10. Hello All, beautiful day here again, although it’s a bit windy, which is nice not quite so hot.

    Great challenge for this week Sandra, if I can find something’s I’ll try and do one.

    Cheryl very envious of your present from Pete, always wanted one.

    Sandra hope you have a quieter day today, perhaps sit in the garden and read a book, I thing it’s so much more relaxing outside.

    Not much I can do here, they are busy putting in the base units, so staying out of the way, so the garden beckons. Have a good day all, Lilian
