We had ...

... company yesterday afternoon. Eldest grand-daughter (12 going on 21 - lol!) came to visit 'Daddy' but, as he's now living with us, we got her company as well. Dad was employed sorting out her laptop and while he was doing that she wanted to make one of my 'big' flowers. Despite explaining how time consuming they were she insisted - until she'd cut up some of the daisy shapes I'd already punched a few days ago - hehe! She ended up making 3 simpler flowers from shapes I'd already got punched (instruction care of moi but with inspiration from Jane Gill - of course!) and making a Mothers Day card for her Mum. It's being kept here so she doesn't lose it which gave me the chance to take a photo of it today. Apart from the ribbon, which I tied and stuck where she wanted it, it's all her own work, her colour choices and layout. One day she may make a 'big' flower but - lol!
 

I managed to make a card for a friend who will be celebrating his 60th birthday on 23rd. He shares the date - but not the age - with hubby. Hubby just wishes he could see 60 again - lol! He's very much a country gent so decided to make the LaPashe Flippin' Men - Walkies for him. It's the first card I've made at home in an age and will probably be the last for a good while as well!
..... and here's hubby's latest toy! His brand new, all singing, all dancing box with a wheel on each corner - hehehe!!!

Thanks for dropping by .....
