I know long time no card !!, to be honest before the half term i was really busy - H had a friend round for tea (the first time, since he's started school) and his mum and little brother had to come too - so i had to completely clear my dining room table of craft stuff and so it was not as easy to just make a card. I went back to see my Rheumatoid Consultant who promptly gave me 3 more different drugs to take - including steroids, so i wasn't overly impressed !!, they are a short term thing and hopefully i'll be off them by the end of July. Then last week, as it was half term we rented a cottage in Gloucester - where despite the weather had a good time - H got to meet Adam Henson - the farmer off of Countryfile, as we went to his Cotswold Farm Park, he got to go to the woods where they film 'Merlin' (Puzzlewood) and he was a 'Dragon Lord' at Warwick Castle's - Merlin Dragon Tower.
As i love doing Men's cards ( i love the non fanciness about them) and with Father's Day on Sunday, i thought i would ease myself in gently with a stamp and paper pad that i've had for a while but don't use very often, add a charm, sentiment and some twine and i had a card.

I apologise the quality of the photo, only the camera that i have only had 6 months i have managed to dent the metal bit round the lens, so now the bottom shutter won't close and Canon won't repair it under warranty and want to charge me £199 to repair it - the amount i paid for camera in first place, so i will now be buying a new camera and not a 'Canon' one !!!
