Hi everyone, a card and a few thank you's..

Well, I've just about finished catching up with all the blogs I follow... I hope....I am amazed at all the beautiful cards you make, it takes me forever to get to see them all and leave comments, so if I've missed anyone out, sorry. I haven't had much time to keep up with my commenting recently, so I have to read through all the posts comments just to see if I've already left one, and when some have hundreds of comments ...it takes me forever,.... if anyone know a quicker way of checking it out, please let me know I would be so grateful. The garden has taken over recently, I've nearly finished all the planting, digging, and cutting back, I've only got a bit more jet washing of the paving, then I can start enjoying it, that's if the weather gets better. Have been so lazy, instead of making cards in the evenings, I've just sat a watched TV, just not used to all that gardening, I've also got a pain in the neck (no not my hubby) so I can't sit at the PC or my laptop very long either, don't like this getting old....

A couple of Lovely Awards.... it's taken me a while to post about these.....

Nicola kindly gave me the Blog support award and Sassy the lemonade stand award, thank you ladies I appreciated them so very much. Most of you will already be followers of these two very talented ladies, but if you haven't visited their blogs recently please go and check them out, you won't be sorry, they are both amazing.

As I've already passed on the lemonade stand award and as I truly appreciate everyone who visits and leaves me such lovely comments I'm passing these onto all my blogging friends, so if any of you would like to accept theses awards with appreciation and love from me, please take them for your blog.







Here's a card I made very quickly a couple of months ago, I got a phone call from my nephew Joe to say he'd passed his driving test, he never told anyone he was taking it and passed first time. I was seeing him the next day so had to make a quicky card. I printed the words directly to the card using GCF, decoupage the car which was a La Pashe sheet, also decoupaged the torn L plate. And if you're wondering what the next big challenge is....inside it said .....paying for the insurance....
Would love to know what you think....

Hi Chris, what a great job you did on Joes card, you wouldn't know it was a quicky, its perfect, I bet he was proud as punch passing first time, it took me two attempts, no wonder your just sitting watching TV at night you must be shattered with all that gardening, you will have to put some pics on your blog so we can have a look.
Take care, don't work to hard,
Debs
