Special Wishes

Another miserable day, this morning when i went out it was raining, cold and windy, a totally depressing day!!! i didn't think it could possibly get worse, but low and behold, it can and it did!its snowing now too, as well as raining!! Now as you know i all love snow, but there is little chance of it settling with the rain accompanying it! how typical is that!!! My poor chickens didn't think much to it either and have gone into their coup already and clucking away (do chickens cluck?). I know how they feel!!

Just had a phone call from my OH telling me i have to run my son down to the garage as his car is ready to be collected. Again typical, as i had no intentions of braving the weather again!! Hopefully because its so miserable out, there wont be many people about and the roads will be clear!

Jasmine is still poorly, i was up most of the night as she had a fever, and couldn't get warm. She finally fell asleep at 4.00am!!! by which time i was wide awake and couldn't get back to sleep. So by 5.00am i was downstairs with my best friend mr pc. I managed to get my DT cards done and posted on my blog ready for Sunday, and Monday, how impressive is that?!?

One of my lovely friends had a bereavement last week, and i made this card for her. I am sure she would have received it by now so am safe to post it. The flower which tilda is sitting in, was cut from a piece of large lace. I have had it sitting in my stash for a while and had no idea what i was going to do with it, then when the flower became obvious, i decided to cut it out. Hope you think it works well. I have highlighted with some stickles. Hope my friend liked it.

This is another variation on the same idea, only this is a prima flower i believe.

Then finally a card using one of the gorgeous hanglar images that was sent to me by my lovely friend Karin in a RAK. Thank you hunny.

So these are cards that i made earlier this week. I have a few more to post which i will probably get round to doing tomorrow.
So my lovelies, hope you have a great afternoon, see you all over the weekend. Hugs Linda x
