What a super day we are experiencing in Surrey today. I have been dog walking with only a T-shirt on. Bare Arms!! Fancy that! Here comes the summer.
This card was made for Jenny over at Hobby Art. This is from the Poppy set which is a real joy to work with. I know the seed heads are not red but call it artistic license. Each flower was coloured in using a Promarker and then embossed with clear embossing powder to make them shine.
Where did the weekend go?
Friday saw me at the Houses of Parliament for a memorial service for a lovely girlfriend of mine who died aged 52. I was privileged to read a poem at the service. Thankfully, it was at the beginning of the service, so I didn't get too nervous. It was great to see my old friends and colleagues and it felt like yesterday that I used to go there to work every day.
Saturday we went to a pub in South Wimbledon to support a local band. We always have a good night and the ladies dance. Then Sunday we drove to Boreham Wood to have lunch with good friends. So, a busy but good weekend. So far today, I have walked four dogs in Limpsfield Chart and it'll be back to work later. Have to make a card for my nephew though first. I'm trying to think if I have anything suitable for a 30 year old. Best go check. That's all for now.
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.
