Spring Friends


Whisper is well and truly better now, thank goodness - we knew she was getting better by Wednesday, as she spat out her anti-biotic tablet and pulled the stuffing out of her favourite ball !!!
I didn't manage to get my dinner out on Wednesday, as i forgot the tiler was coming round to price up our kitchen, as we are having a new one in a couple of weeks.  OH had a good time at the Cheltenham races, he was on his way to wining £120,000 (as he had done a 1st and 2nd placed accumalator), when his horse fell at the last fence and came in 4th - how gutted were we !!, as i was thinking great pay off some of the mortgage, but he was thinking 'Aston Martin' - i think he's been watching too much 'Top Gear' !!!, so probably good job he didn't win.

My lovely friend Susan over on Docrafts has set the challenge an Easter card with flowers and ribbon and as i hadn't entered her last challenge, i thought i had better enter this one.  I've also made a little card again and I've used the fabby Doodlebug papers - Petit Print again, sorry, but i just love them so much and as they are only 79p for a double sided 12x12 sheet, i think they are really good value. This card is also going to Martins House Hospice in Leeds, as a lady on Docrafts requested Easter cards to sell and give the children.
