Good morning from a sunny East Fife.   Thank you for all your well wishes to both Charlie and I while we have been a bit under the weather, I am pleased to say we are on the mend, and hopefully that's the end of the nasty bugs.
Well I have just been away seeing Anna off on the bus with the rest of the P5,6&7. They are away till Friday at an out door centre - the weather is not meant to be to good for the next few days.   We packed her off with lots of plastic bags to put all the wet dirty clothes in.

Today's card is for friends whom we have known for nearly 40 years ( ex forces) like us they moved many times in those days but have lived in this last house for 26 years and are now down sizeing, now that's not so easy to do after all this time.  When you move every couple of years you do clear out often but when you stop moving you stop clearing out as our friends have found out, lots of skip runs with things they forgot they had put in the loft.  Thankfully I have the policy that if we haven't used it or worn it for 2years we don't need it, so it goes.  But saying that my craft things come under a different category of it will be needed at some point.

7x5 pre cut card, embossed with SB spotty folder, purple backing card Lidl's and my favourite LOTV image.  Hand written "New Home".
Well I'd better make a move and get some house work done.  Thank you for all your comments they are appreciated.

Have a good day what ever you are doing.

  11. Hi Hazel
    Glad the germs have subsided. Still a bit of a sniff here but could be worse.
    Your friends will be thrilled when they open your beautiful card. Lovely pastel colours. I have two wisteria and can't wait for their lovely scent to waft through my kitchen door.
    If I haven't used it in two years, get rid? Does that include Mr Duck lol ?
    Best wishes.
