Friday the 13th

Good morning!

Firstly let me start off by saying a huge Thank you for all your birthday wishes, your messages and your gorgeous handmade cards AND the many gifts I received yesterday...

I'm quite overwhelmed... 33 cards arrived, and flowers? Take a look


I have a whole bunch of Thank you cards to make, that's for sure! What a brilliant day, finished of with an evening out with my son and husband at a local Greek restaurant...

Now it's friday13th, I don't usually think much about the superstition surrounding that, but when I went for my shower this morning the heating was off... I've no idea why, it did come on later. Then I was downloading my photos and inadvertently put my my SD memory card into the wrong slot on my Mac so began a major operation to get it out again. Thank goodness for those forums! Then I somehow managed to delete one of my files... Lol! Maybe I should pay more attention...

Just to finish I have another bird card I sketched and painted


My DH bought me an artist travel set for my birthday! Yay! That's going to be very useful

 
I hope your day goes well... Thank you all once again for making my day so special

Hugs

~ Ros ~

Good to hear that so many were thinking of you! You are special and deserve to be spoilt. I love the flowers and am I right that you were at the restaurant where we were in 2015? It must have been a lovely dinner and a wonderful evening. I am looking forward to see photos of your artist travel kit; sounds great! And your card...stunning. I am in awe of your creativity and talent. Have a lovely evening!

Ugh, Friday the 13th. I hid in my craft room all day thinking I would be safe, but I ended up abandoning the card I was working on because it just wasn't looking right and felt unbalanced! Next time I will just stick to watching tv!! Beautiful card Ros, I am so in love with your little birdie, what a punch of bright and cheery crafting to start my day! Happy weekend!

Darlene said...

Gorgeous flowers and how nice to be shown how much you are loved! I didn't think about it being Friday the 13th either and actually it was a REALLY GOOD day for me! Finally got all my Christmas decorations down and put away, got a lot of house cleaning & rearranging done (looks so nice to start the new year) and even got 2 DT cards made and preposted! Hope your Saturday the 14th is a better day for you! LOL OH and BTW ... your sketching & coloring are FABULOUS! You are quite an artist ... love it!!

I'm glad I forgot it was Friday the 13th. I was thinking it was the 12th all day. Now I'll have to think back to see if I had more than the usual problems.... nope, I think it was a normal day. Ros, I'm in awe again! Your plump bird is so cute! It's wonderful to see these pretty spring colors today. You keep getting better and better. I just know you were thrilled with your birthday present. Crafty things are like a euphoria-inducing drug to me. Only better. No side effects.

Maria said...

Oh, wow!! Many beautiful flowers and cards you received on your birthday, Ros...so deserving! How special for you! Sounds like you had a lovely dinner with your husband and son, too! Can't wait to see what you create with your artist kit. And, your card with the lovely bird is super sweet and beautiful!
