Birthdays

Hello and good morning to you ...

January is such a busy month ... Another friend of mine celebrates both her anniversary and birthday this month ...
Tomorrow we are meeting for lunch to celebrate both our birthdays

This is the card I made for her


The little cat is from a die set I received from my friend Rebecca ... I just love it!


The paper beneath the flowers is a pale mint colour but it is so hard to photograph


I've recently backed up all my files from the computer ... I was having nightmares about losing everything ... my whole world is in this computer ... virtually
So along with paying a fee to Google for my photo capacity ... I now pay Drop box for my peace of mind ...
It meant for a few days that my computer was a little slower whilst files were being done and then blogger started playing up ... hopefully now all is well

Once again I would like to thank everyone for their lovely gifts and words following my birthday ...
Here are a few things I received from sweet blog friends


From the lovely Ira with this beautiful card


From my sweet friend Stella



Every single item was so beautifully wrapped


...  from Wendy ... also the Netherlands!



...And from my dear friend Rebecca ...


Thank you all so much! 
I am overwhelmed and very grateful for your kindness 

Ok, I have a class tonight for my group of physical and mentally disabled and it's going to take me the rest of the day to prepare all the projects for them ... We are doing clipboard calendars and so far I've made, printed and cut 60 sheets of calendar months ... now onto the clip boards and embellishments ... It's really hard work but so rewarding ... It's always good to put something back into society don't you think?

Have a beautiful day and keep safe

Till soon

~ Ros ~

Pretty pretty card. I'm sure your friend will adore it. What wonderful friends you have and such pretty gifts, too. After my computer problems you are very smart to do the backup. I still don't have my computer.I have been lost. Plus the weather has been so lousy I have been stuck in the house. Enjoy your day!!!
