Well H has had a very busy weekend with 2 parties - yesterdays was ten pin bowling and today was football, he enjoyed both alot.  We bought Alan a motorbike yesterday, as he works in the city (in insurance) and it's costing him £120 a month to park at the station, but with a motorbike, you pay nothing !!!, he has done the initial  training and now has a 125.

Todays card is for H's best friends brother, who is going to be 3 on Thursday, but H and i are going to the party on Wednesday (it's a Gruffalo party) and i wanted something that was cute, but fun, and i thought as he was holding 3 balloons this image was apt.  The papers are some old 'K & Co' ones, and i have paper pieced the balloons and bow tie, the buttons are 'Papermania' and the sentiment is 'Woodware'.

Hi Sam, gorgeous card perfect for a 3 year old. If you have too many strawberries to eat now you can freeze them then when you need them later mash or puree them and eat with yogurt. x Susan x
