Me With my Parents
On Sunday afternoon, my best friend Valerie, had planned a surprise treat for me, I had no idea what was happening or where I was going! Val picked me up at 2.30pm and drove me to a local Hotel, The Stirk House, it's a very old and pretty hotel. I was taken to a room with a burning log fire and was greeted by two more of my friends, Mandy and Lisa, we were all there for afternoon tea, it was heavenly! :) I could certainly become a lady that lunches, Lol
Monday was my actual birthday, I received so many lovely cards and presents but the best surprise of all was the amazing video that Amy had arranged all the way from Thailand! As you can imagine I cried! :) There was also a bouquet of flowers delivered from Amy which happened to arrive just seconds after I had seen the video :)

Today is a day to craft :) I am looking forward to spending some time in my craft room with my stash! It's been such a hectic time so a little crafting therapy is definitely in order. Here is a little Christmas card I made on Thursday, it's quite a simple one using my Marianne design Mittens die and a border embossing folder that I got free on a magazine, sorry not sure which one it was. I just added a bit of glitter on the cuffs and stamped a small 'Happy Christmas' sentiment.
Well that's all for now folks, off to make some lunch and then craft, craft, craft :)
