a birthday card...

still trying to build up a reserve of cards.....



this is a tonic die...A New Day...with lots of Sue wilson dies...the flowers are striped nasturtiums..leaves Delicate fronds and the sentiment is also Sue Wilson...
Its a cool day here today so I am back in my craft room..after a disaster of visit to the craft fair where someone stole my phone out of my handbag while I was paying at a till....the organisers at Stamp magic were marvelous ..they phoned my carrier and had the phone cancelled and located,put out a tanoy to tell the thief the police were on the way and that no matter where the phone was it could be located and to hand it in as it was no use to them...and lo and behold an hour later it was handed in having been dumped in a toilet cubical....ruined my day I have to say...but good for the bank balance as I was too upset to buy anything ....
I hope you are having a good day today and thank you for popping by my blog....
