Best Birthday Wishes

Hello friends
I am so lucky to have the most loveliest followers - THANK YOU 
all for your kind comments yesterday, I truly cannot wait to get my new premises decorated, 
organised and open my door to all of you that would like to visit.  
I will ensure there is cake, plenty of cake! 
As for shop front colours - I'm tending to go with the idea of keeping it neutral,
perhaps a cream/beige but then I did also like the suggestion of duck egg blue.
A few matchpots to purchase I think!
Today's card, another one created using a vintage image.
I chose to emulate the roses in the picture with the patterned paper and 
I mentioned the Gift Vouchers yesterday - yes, I can arrange that they can be used
for purchases from my Amazon shop.  Just select what items you would like and email an order 
through to me - 
  In fact, if any of you see any items in my Amazon shop but would prefer to order them direct again, 
please email.  I am always happy to help with whatever is easier for each of you.

Today looking at my list (a new list!) I have to admit it is not getting shorter, 
luckily nearly all the jobs are craft...that's nice work! 

I want to send out a mention to Carolyn - I'm so sorry to hear that your dog is now in doggy heaven,
myself and many others know the absolute heartbreak of losing a beloved pet,
home is never the same without them - sending you love and hugs right now.

Take care friends.

Morning Christine, a very vintage card today. I love the rose backing paper and think you have used that or something similar on other projects.
Good luck with the matchpots.

P.S. I also want to say that my thoughts are with Carolyn too, I lost my (4 legged) best friend in February and I know how devastated you must be feeling right now. Take care.

Hi Christine. Another very pretty card today. I think we should just put "ditto" after Scottish Crafters comments as she phrased it so well.

What an absolutely beautiful card you have done today Christine, it is just gorgeous. I do agree, neutral is probably best, it looks lovely in the colour it is now.

Yes, my sympathy to Carolyn too, it will take a while to get over.
