Brother's 65th

Hi everyone. Well the weekend as been accident prone for both myself and my hubby! Saturday hubby fell backwards in the garden and just missed banging his head on the brick wall at the back. Got away with a grazed elbow. It could have been a lot lot worse than that and he was on his own.  I went flying on Sunday morning flat out and landed heavily on my left side (hubby says), my knees felt like they'd taken the brunt of the fall. My left one came up with a lump n next time I looked it had a massive lump. It felt like a bursa on top of the original lump. Lol anyhow can feel left hip as well as knee going up and downstairs. No bruising yet which is unusual for me I bruise dead easily, lol. Right back to the card I've done it for my number 2 brothers 65th birthday which is on Friday. Hope you like!

Eileen's inspiration

Good Morning everyone. Well the weather looks a bit dull here perfect for tidying up shrubs etc in the garden. Enjoy your weekend whatever you do. Two years ago I was fortunate to attend an Eileen Godwin's class in Coventry and finally I have done a card using the same technique that we did then. Hope you like.
