Surprise !!!

Please don't die with shock - yes, it's me and I'm actually blogging (but, I should be ironing) !!!!

It's my Great Uncle's birthday on Tuesday and he's going to be 87 bless him. Here is the card I have made for him ....

I found the courage in the end to break open my Cosmo Cricket papers. These ones are "Earth Love" just in case you are reading this from another planet !!!

The image is by Lili of the Valley and I just thought it was perfect as I'm sure he will have a little snooze with the paper on his birthday, perhaps not under a tree but a snooze anyway !!! You already know its been coloured with ProMarkers !

Raffia and button from my stash.

"Dream" sentiment by Melissa Frances.

Right, I suppose I ought to crack on with the ironing before the hubster returns from Tesco with the kids and catches me !!!! I'm far to busy to shop AND iron you know !!! ;o)

Thank you for visiting me this afternoon and for any comments you may leave - they do mean the World.
