Birthday Best


Well what a week !!!, had a fabby weekend in the Yorkshire Dales, shame weather wasn't better.  Monday H had an inset day and i managed to prang the bumper off of my car !!, £650 worth of damage, then yesterday i went to school and found that a parent whose child has chicken pox, was bringing it into school, so that she could drop another child off - and as i have an immune deficiency illness that is not good news, so Alan is speaking to the headmaster about it and i've had a headcold since Tuesday, oh joy.

Today's stamp is another oldie, this time 1996, and the card is for one of H's friends at school, whose having a party on Sunday.  The colour combination is unusual for me, but i had a route through my papers and found these fabby MS ones (that i bought a couple of years ago in USA) and i've teamed it with an MS punch and my Hero Arts banner stamp.

Ouch, that's an expensive prang Sam, so easily done though.

Some people amaze me bringing sick children into school and can totally identify with your worry being immune deficient myself, if fact I get quite paranoid about it at time with people lack of thought.

On to your card, totally delightful, she is such a lovely image and the colours are delightful.

Thanks so much for sharing with us at Penny Black and More this month.
