Rainy days mean Summer is here at last .

First I must say thank you to Lyn - thanks for the nudge sweetheart, I have let too much time lapse between posts and I appreciate your emails xx Secondly, what have I been up to, well, we've been on holiday, over to Southern Ireland again, I have been doing a lot of baking - at our time of life when we should be cutting down on everything - you know, less activity etc .....but you see, because of my pain I can't exercise much so all gentle exercise helps enormously, and a lump of bread dough is a wonderful way to exercise my shoulders and upper arms gently - that's what I have been doing, baking pies, bread, cakes - all fattening, lard on the thighs inducing but lubberly goodies heehee ..

I have also, for a change, been making cards - I had some more goodies from the lovely Sue (link on the left) so I have been using them for all my 'soldiers' cards and I made these three 'specials' for my aunt, so I thought I would share them.
Finally, thank you to everyone who has left a message, I will get round to all your blogs over the next few days, promise..

More cards from Bad Penny days

I am posting these cards to show appreciation to the wonderful ladies who send me goodies to use for my cards and for myself, can't say a big enough THANK YOU to you for your help xxx Sue, Nancy and Carol - luvs ya loads xxx

Like the proverbial Bad Penny - I turned up again :-)

I really don't know where the hours and days and weeks go, they just fly past in a haze of all the things I do, and a lot more things that I should do, but never get round to doing, like putting cards on my blog for instance.. I have so many 'outlets' now, for my cards, charity outlets that is, that I am spoilt for choice and just can't get the amount done that I would like to, simply because time and health and normal living quite often get in the way... I send cards to a distribution centre for our soldiers overseas, to a veterans hospital in USA, to a Navy post in Portugal, to a couple of local childrens cancer respite home charities and am now making some for a local animal welfare kennels, so life is good, and very, very full and I am happy - what more is there eh?

Back at Last !!

Well, where has the time gone, I have been beavering away with my cards, with a friend moving into the area, with the mundane happenings of real life, including looking after a farm and a garden on Facebook - and then I had an email from Lyn, was I ok because I hadn't been on my blog - and I promised, two weeks ago that I would put some cards on muy rapido - well, my brain became defunct and I didn't for which I apologise, but here are a couple of photos of cards (how unusual) ....
the little silver dots on the Elvis lookalike card and the leopard card are called card confetti, sent to me by Carol - see her link down the left hand side..
