It's my birthday.

Well its official I'm no longer a forty something I'm 50 today,
Oh it sounds funny , but expect I'll soon get used to it.
We didn't really do anything today family and friends just came and went all day.
I didn't want a birthday party as we decided last year we would go to America this year, to celebrate my 50th birthday and our 30th wedding anniversary in December.
On Thursday evening I thought I was going out for tea with DH but when we got there my lovely brother had arranged for my family to be there , well I was so shocked but it was fantastic .So I have a great few days on Saturday DH gave me money to go to Harrogate, which I spent plus a bit beside.
Hope to be able to get a few cards made soon...lol.

Crafty Creations Challenge

Crafty Creations Challenge

I have made a quick card for Crafty Creations Challenge.
I haven't been doing a lot of blogging, still been popping round and leaving a few comments. I have finished work now, I am now a stay at home domestic godess... lol, dont think so.
The craft shop where I worked was closed for nearly two months due to a very sad family bearevment.
During that time I loved being at home and when the time came near to going back my DH and me !! decided we loved me being at home so I was a little sad not to be going back, as I really liked my job...(kid in sweet shop) ...but he works shifts and so it was awkward sometimes as he had free time at all different times of the week.
The shop has now re-opened and I will be going back as a customer.
Watch out you two I will be an awkward one....rofl.
Dont think I've ever had so much to say, sorry for the long waffle.
I dont know what paper it is out of scraps.
Image is a Moorehead stamp.
Flora doodles flowers.
Craftwork card sentiment.
Gems and ribbon from stash.
Coloured with polychromos.
