well hello and it is certainly a wet one here today ... shame

shame because we have had a lot going on this weekend in Southsea its the americas cup race ... but I think it was a total washout ... shame for all the people who arranged it and shame for all the people who had paid for tickets ... ( I was of course not involved in either )

but Kate and William made it and as you can see Kate was not amused lol ...

Kate in Southsea today
anyway on to my cards ... three today from me ... that certainly is good for me ... they are all commissioned cards ...

sorry forgot to scan the inserts ... but the verse in the bottom two cards read ... 

No moving parts, no batteries.
No monthly payments and no fees.
Inflation proof, non-taxable,
In fact, it's quite relaxable.
It can't be stolen, won't pollute,
one size fits all, do not dilute.
It uses little energy,
but yields results enormously.
Relieves your tension and your stress,
Invigorates your happiness.
Combats depression, makes you beam,
and elevates your self-esteem!
Your circulation it corrects,
without unpleasant side effects.
It is, I think, the perfect drug,
May I prescribe, my dear sister...
A Hug!
(and, of course, fully returnable)
Love and hugs from

thought it was rather nice

hope you have all had a great weekend ... and thank you for stopping by

three cards at last

hello my crafty friends ... three cards at last ...

wow things are all happening here at the moment ... got to go in for another little op on Monday on my shoulder ... the horrid mole has to be cut again ... well a wider excision ... then I have got a bit of a problem with my foot ... flip me .. it never rains but it pours eh ?? the doc thinks it may be gout ... but I certainly hope not ... it is very swollen and hurts to walk on ... have had a blood test and wait the results ... ho hum ... but all good otherwise

hope you are all well ... and enjoying the weather as I certainly am

so on to my three little cards ... the two cameo cards are made using the stamp that came in the card making and papercraft magazine this month ... just love the stamp

and the chinese one is for my dear chinese friend ... the sentiment can be found her

thank you for stopping by and hope you all have a great weekend
