Many happy returns

Hello and welcome to my latest post, and thank you for your comments on the last one, they are so appreciated

Latest update is that I went into Wokingham by taxi on my own on Saturday, and had a look round a few shops and then walked home, which is about a 20 minute walk, so felt really chuffed! and yesterday Jean and I went to a Garden Centre. We split up and did our own thing, and then met up for a coffee.  Didn't really enjoy the outing as I was feeling really wobbly and to be honest the plants and flowers were half dead and the whole place looked run down and very un-loved.  At least I have two more outings under my belt! lol!

Onto today's card:


Just love this image which is from Stamps Away and coloured with Promarkers and Fleximarkers.  The background is the  8 x 8 Textures 'Wood' embossing folder from Crafter's Companion and coloured with distress inks.  The die is Spellbinders Grand Circles and again coloured with distress inks.  Buttons and bows from my stash and the sentiment is from Hunkydory

I would like to enter this into the 'Anything Goes' Challenge over at Crafting with the Heart

Till next time........................
