Another Birthday ...

Hello there ...


It still isn't a bit like summer here .... further down I have a couple of photos to share of my day and you can see from the skies just what our British summer is like....
Firstly though I have another quick birthday card to share ... I suddenly remembered that this weekend my friend's grandson is having a birthday. Boys birthday cards can be quite difficult especially when they are that 11/ 12 year old stage ... anyway I looked through my digi files and found This kit, Yep, another fabulous freebie from Michelle Underwood ....



I promise you it took no time at all to make this ... All I added was the stitching, the little fences and the cupcake ....




I think this will be suitable don't you?

Today my husband and I went for a drive to a place called Nantwich ... a real old market town with tudor buildings and a slow pace ... we stopped off for lunch at a country pub we know and then on to Nantwich to have a stroll around the few shops there and then drove back stopping at "Snugbury's" ice cream place .. not that either of us are ice cream lovers ( though theirs is good ... very good!) but the surrounding countryside is beautiful and one of their fields in particular each year boasts a huge hay sculpture ... they have had Big Ben , ferris wheels, rockets etc., and this year it is an enormous Meerkat!




See, there I am by the Meerkat and you can see how windy it is and how dark the sky is ... I guess only us Brits walk around in the rain and wind eating ice cream in August!!
If you are interested in seeing the other sculptures ... Here is a link ...

Have a great weekend everyone 
Till soon
Ros
