Hello everyone :)
My first little Grandbaby was born this evening at 6.13pm weighing in at 6lb 7oz his name is Byron....welcome little Byron may the Angels always walk with you.
This is the card i made to send to his wonderful parents Mel & Grant congratulations to you both x
Hello everyone, some of you may or may not know that I am the Norfolk Coordinator for Operation Shoebox in West Norfolk, I and a few good crafting friends from http://www.trimcraft.co.uk/ have for some time now been making and sending cards out to our troops in Afghanistan, so you can imagine how pleased i was to receive the following from admin at operation shoebox today....its only part of the email because of confidentuality but it certainly made me smile :)
[quote]I thought it would be a good idea to feature the idea and your cards on the web site, just send a photo of one or two and a few words about the group who produce them and I will get something on for you asap. This would let people know just what a marvellous idea this is and it will enable troops out there to see what you are all doing, so you might get some requests for more.
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain
And pick flowers in other people's gardens
And learn to spit.
You can wear terrible shirts and grow more fat
And eat three pounds of sausages at a go
Or only bread and pickle for a week
And hoard pens and pencils and beermats and things in boxes.
But now we must have clothes that keep us dry
And pay our rent and not swear in the street
And set a good example for the children.
We must have friends to dinner and read the papers.
But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know me are not too shocked and surprised
When suddenly I am old, and start to wear purple.
Enchanted Santa took me about 1hr 1/2 just to colour in, coloured with ProMarkers and others, the background is embossed with a cuttlebug folder. The ribbon has twisted red florist wire with beads added just to finnish the card off. Hope you like it.
Hello everyone, I'm Jay & live in beautiful Norfolk.
I am new to blogging so have no idea really what I am doing ~ so at the moment, it's mostly trial & error :)
My daughter has encouraged me to do this...I think she think's it will keep me out of mischief lol
