made this little doggie card for my lovely granddaughters birthday tomorrow ... she is puppy mad as you can probably guess ... you can see "cookie" in my side bar ... actually it is more of a little book than a card ... cant wait to see her tomorrow ... ooooo love her to bits

the second card is for a dear friend of mine for her birthday ... we used to work together but now we are both retired ... its a big birthday but didn't want to put the age on the card ...

panto fun

wow had a super time at the panto with my lovely grandchildren ... Gracie and Ols ... it was Snow White and the music was very "young" if you know what I mean ...  we had "happy" and "all bout my face" ... music that the youngsters knew ...

we got pelted with a water gun which Ols loved of course ...

have not been to a panto for years but Gracie won the family ticket by entering a competition in a local magazine ... we will certainly look forward to next year

Poor Pauline ...

my dear friend has just lost her Mum ... she died on the 21st December ... so very sad and such a hard card to make ... I decided not to put a sentiment on the front of the card ... and then had a bit of a brainwave and put it on the back cover ... well its different anyway

thank you for stopping by ... hope you have all had a super Christmas ... it was my birthday yesterday so am still in a bit of a spin ... Christmas and Birthdays are all a bit much ... think I will be like the Queen and have an unofficial birthday in the summer ... or maybe not coz I will get old pretty quick lol

well hello there my little friends ...

sorry I have been mia ... wow don't know where the time goes ... I will try to catch up with you all real soon ... have been busy with the selling of our dear Mum's flat ... and although I don't want to talk about it yet (tempting fate n all dat !!) but hopefully things are going well

It is going to be a bit of a sad Christmas this year ... but I just keep thinking ... I would not want Mum to be here if she was suffering ... Last Christmas day was very hard ... having the family to cook for and all I could think about was that I had to get round to see Mum ... so although I am going to miss her like .... oooooo everything ... I would not want her to be here if she was the same as last year

hope you all have a great Christmas
