This is a card I have made for someone, they wanted it for today, so quickly made it this morning. I needed 3 of the burgundy flowers but when I came to put them on I realised I only had 2, disaster. Luckily I remembered Tracey at RWS had a class this afternoon so a quick phone call and the day was saved. Thanks Tracey you were a lifesaver.

I had painted the image last night so only had to put the card together today all the papers are what has been left over from previous cards, taking a leaf out of Tracey's book and trying to use 1 piece of leftover on each card I make.

I had a lovely weekend with my special friend Stuart for his birthday. Went out on Friday night a very late night and had an early morning as his daughter Freya wanted me watch her play football and kick off was 10am and we had to leave at 9am to get there in time.

Early on Saturday morning wondering what had possessed me to agree to this I reluctantly got out of bed and got ready. Well what a surprise it was, the girls played really well and won 3-0 they could show some professional footballers (who earn millions) how it is done. Well done girls I hope you win your league I know you are top at the moment with 3 games to go. Freya you are a brilliant footballer well done.

Well after a fun filled weekend with lots of food and drink (vodka) today I got ready to go get weighed at Slimming World fully expecting to have put weight on. Imagine my surprise when I gingerly got on the scales and had LOST 2lb, ecstatic. I don't intend to stick to the weekend diet sure it wouldn't last for long and would soon start putting the pounds on again. I don't intend to go back there, it has been to much hard work and I am nearly at target.

Hope you all have a good week.

Thank you for reading
