It was Sadie's 80th birthday on the 13th. It was touch and go whether we'd be able to celebrate because of the weather but we had a little lunch for her with her sister, niece, Nicole, my MIL and I at a restaurant. I bought helium balloons and sat them on either side of her chair. I also got her the obligatory Birthday Girl badge which she wore with pride! She had a lovely day and was well up for the celebrations!
I used another one of my Inky Antic stamps. I'm glad to say that Sadie loved her card :-D
Isn't she gorgeous lol
I wanted to use the Old Olive ribbon I have like this but it just didn't look right so I opted for the brown. This ribbon is brilliant for tying bows...totally idiot proof (me not Jeanie lololol).
I'm no further forward with my Christmas preparations. I've got 28 cards in various stages. I thought I would get them finished but ended up watching the final of the Apprentice and talking to Lisa for over an hour!! I think we spent most of that time going in circles and confusing each other lol. Tree still hs one decoration BUT I did buy the ingredients for my Christmas baking...I just don't know when I'll fit it in!
Anywho, I'm pooped so I'm going to take the dogs out in the snow (we got another 3 inches today) then get to my bed.
