We're really hoping you can join us and look forward to seeing you. I'd also like to enter this card into the following challenges......

Pollycraft - Happy Birthday
Digital Tuesday - Happy Birthday
My Time to Craft - Check it Out
Craftalicious - Birthdays

I've had a lovely day just chillin' today once I'd been out with the dogs - so much so my plans to craft all day got blown outta the water rofl.  Peter came home today for the weekend and now we're both shattered as we've fixed the perimeter fence to make it "Murphy proof" and prevent him escaping into the village and making a nuisance of himself lol.  I have found some time to do a bit of on-line crafty shopping though seeing as its my birthday.  Pete's promised to make me a home office/craft room in the garden for year round use whoo hooo!!!  I'm REALLY excited about that - not bad for a b/day present, but won't be starting work on it until the spring unfortunately.  Once ready to start I'll put show some pics of the work in progress.  I've received some lovely cards from my buddies in blogland (big thankyou to one and all), I'll post a pic of them tomorrow.

Take care and thanks for stopping by.
