Hi Folks. Yesterday was Kim Reygate's birthday and this is the card I made for her. The stamp is from Hobby Art. I made the inked background using a Kaleidacolour ink pad. I bit of embossing folder and Nesties complete the finished card. My husband doesn't think I should ever use black on a birthday card. What do you think? I feel it's a bit 'Halloweeny' don't you? Thankfully that's coming up soon.
I have had a busy few days - as usual. Last Friday I went with my friend to see Lady Antebellum in a small intimate venue in Islington - Union chapel. They were fantastic. Dawn and I had already seen them last year in Shepherd's Bush. Now they are becoming so huge worldwide, I don't suppose we'll ever be that close again. It was a great evening.
I have been working at the school too and last week, ferried the boys and teachers to the church in Surbiton for the Harvest Festival. I remember the ones I attended when I was at school. I went inside the church and was swollen with pride at seeing 'My boys' up there singing and reading. Singing all those hymns really took me back.
Mike and I went to a 'curry party' on Saturday night. My friend Sandra has just qualified as an oesteopath and she threw a party to celebrate. She is such a good cook and made all the curries. Everything was delicious. So, bang went the diet once more. I had hoped I'd lose a few pounds before we go to Tenerife soon. No chance now - so I may as well carry on - No?
I am a dog lover and a crafter and took early retirement after a thirty year career. I now work part time driving school children to and from a school in Surrey. I have been married to my husband Mike for twenty years and we currently live near Epsom in Surrey. I pass my days walking dogs in a voluntary capacity for The Cinnamon Trust, making greeting cards, meeting friends and socialising.
