Good News, Good News

Hi bloggers!
It seems ages since I did any blogging - the main reason being that it was my son's 40th birthday on the 15th June and I had been making a special surprise for him.

I gathered together loads of photos and got comments from some of his friends and school friends etc and I made a "This is your life" book. It took an awful lot of work but I was very pleased with it.

The "Good News" I refer to in the title is that I have been for my 6 month check up and everything was fine - thank goodness. I don't go again until December and then it is to Gynaecology Outpatients instead of the Macmillan Unit - so that is quite heartening.

Anyway I have at long last managed to make a card and I have used the sketch from the Pear Tree Designs Challenge.

and here is my card

I am also entering it in

Totally Papercrafts - which is to use Punches or Die Cuts

Stamp Something - which is to use Pretty Papers
and Just Magnolia - which is Paper Piecing.

I think I will be very busy this month making cards for July - I have so many birthday.
It is my Grand-daughter's on the 1st, then she is getting Christened on the 2nd.

I have a 60th on the 3rd and a birthday on the 5th, 6th, 15th and 21st.

I think perhaps I had better crack on now!!!

Enjoy your evening

This is a really fabulous card it.
July pretty hectic for me too but August is a nightmare especially as YOU know who is 60 this year.
