Happy Birthday Sal!

At the time of this post OH and I will have arrived at our friend Sally's surprise birthday lunch and she will be just about walking in the pub and hopefully be ...well ... surprised lol. We have been great friends with Martin and Sally for over 20 years and I've been looking forward to this day forever! Sally is beautiful both inside and out and she seems to get better with age. Whenever we visit I pray she's put on a stone or two (14-28 lbs) and has more lines than a Scor-pal but she always looks flabulous.

Lucky I was delivering her card because I only started making it last night lol. Although I don't dislike it, it wasn't what I had in my head. It is growing on me and hopefully when she opens it I'll fall in love :-D

I used my favourite BG pp of the moment Sweet Threads along with Make A Wish Nikki and Sentimental Numbers.

My lovely friend Susan came to my rescue and sent me the flabulous new MFT die. I ordered it when I was home thinking we would arrive back in Glasgow together but I'm still waiting hmph. Susan and I made a pact that we would order 2 each in case one of us couldn't get the die.The pink flower in the middle is one of a bunch that Tams sent me months ago. Now don't think she was being nice...oh no...she knew at that time I hated {shock horror} flowers and she thought she was being funny by sending me some. See what I have to put up with!!!

Thanks for dropping in...hope you're basking in the glorious sunshine. Remember your sun cream!!

Catch ya later x
