Friends ...

Today is my Birthday and I am having a lovely day. I have had some lovely pressies including a beautiful necklace from my OH. When he asked me what I wanted, I jokingly said Diamonds and if you look closely you will see there are two little sparklers in here! I need to joke like that more often ...
It has been raining here today and I felt a bit sorry for our lovely post lady who delivered a huge haul of card and gifts – thank you everyone. It is always so lovely receiving cards and the handmade ones that came today are amazing. I may share some of them with you over the next couple of days. We are having quite a lazy day today and then on Saturday we are going to my absolute favourite restaurant with friends for a meal – I am really looking forward to it. I have a friend whose birthday was earlier this week so it’s going to be a joint celebration.

Here is the card I made him for his birthday
The stamp sets are Pocket Silhouettes and Birthday Best which have been stamped in So Saffron, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red. The Card base is Sahara Sand, and the main image is matted onto Ruby Red. The patterned papers are from the Level 1 Hostess set in Kraft and Not Quite Navy. There is also some of the delicious So Saffron Ribbon in there.

Today I also decided that this blog needed a bit of a makeover and an injection of some colour. I hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by

Happy Crafting
