It's time for another.

Hello to all who pop over to visit.

Seems we may have a good Bank Holiday, it's getting warmer here and the sun shone this afternoon  so fingers crossed.

On Thursday it was my Hubby's 60th Birthday (yay... caught me up)
We celebrated with a meal with our girls and family, it's so nice when we're all together, rather noisy, but nice. Then afterwards it was back to ours to blow out the candles on his cake (then open the windows to let out the smoke)  that my Daughter had made for him, very choccy it was too.
 All we had to do then was find his presents again where they'd been hid around the house, funny how even though the girls don't live at home they still have parcels delivered here (well Mum and Dad won't be out .... well where would we go!!!!!)  and some were huge, took some hiding I can tell you.

This week my Grandsons favourite film to watch is Basil the Great Mouse Detective (a fave of his mums too, once upon a time) so everyone this week is dispicable...... which is better than last weeks film  (Moanna) which involves being chased around the house and being whacked with a fish hook!!!!
See what next week brings eh.

And finally, one of my lovely ladies at work was telling me how she'd had an awful week as her smoke alarm had been making strange pipping noises, "Oh it just needs the battery changing"! says I, to which she replied..."My alarm doesn't need  batteries"  Errrr, right, so how does it work then, "It just works" she said, aww bless. I had conjured up a picture in my mind of a very long wire leading to the plug socket, so funny. Well this week her Son-In-Law arrived with a new battery to save another awful week of pipping," amazing" she said, "my other one never had batteries and it worked perfectly, this one mustn't be as good!!!!! And the battery cost £4, daylight robbery.
Note to self, check mine.

So here's my card.

Love this Tilda.
Have a super Bank Holiday peeps.
Hugs Sue xx

  9. Wow Sue your card is absolutely stunning, so much attention to detail. Had to laugh at your fire alarm story. Would you believe we have an electric one (no batteries lol) all wired into the electric. Only beeps when we have had a power failure. Poor lady lol

  10. Wow Loooooove your Card So many gorgeous Embellies and all just perfect. Your colouring is Amazing as always. Just changed my batteries too! Enjoy your Week :)

  11. What a gorgeous card, Sue, so pretty and feminine. The smoke alarm story made me smile - wouldn't it be good if these things worked all on their own? Think of the money we'd save... to spend on our stamps! x

  12. Very beautiful. I like all the pink. :D Thanks for playing with us at Magnolia-licious! xx
