I Thank You

Good Morning
My Crafty Friend, Followers and Visitors,

Well it's the start of another week, anyone getting up to anything special.

I believe its half term here in the UK so I guess most of you will be taking
a break from work and looking after the children.  Probably by the end
of the week wishing for Monday to come to get the children back in
school and you back to normal.

I see that my little band of followers is growing steadily and hopefully
soon I will be up to 70.  If you have started following me and
I have not returned a visit to your blog, it's more than likely that
I don't have your blog address. Please leave me it in your
comments as I do want to start following you all.

Off to Mums today to check everything is ok and hopefully weather
permitting clean her outside windows, quite easy really as she lives
in a bungalow.
Not wanting to speak to soon but my back seems to be getting a little better
and I have been thinking  about what could have brought it on and the 
only thing that I can think of is back in January I  have to go and get
my blood pressure checked and they found my cholesterol was quite high
and told me they were going to put me on Statins. I have never heard of
them but they help lower cholesterol but I was told if I started having
headaches, joint pains or feeling very tired to stop taking them and
go back.  Well I have been having headaches, falling asleep at the 
drop of a hat and of course the pain in my back started.

So I thought Jennifer stop taking the dam things and that was
last Thursday and the pain is defiantly getting easier and I am
not falling asleep as soon as I sit in the armchair, although I do fall
asleep later in the evening but that is something I have done for
years, No Comments about OLD AGE Thank You  ha ha !!!.

Boy I do waffle on don't I, sorry folks but I just wanted to bring
you up to speed and promise to SHUT UP.

Today's make is again using the Kanban kit, I think its breading
in the box as it does not seem to be going down but then it
is a lovely kit to work with.


1. Started with an 8 x8 card and made it into an easel card

2. Using paper from Craftwell Cards paper pad I covered the
bottom and top of the card.

3. Using the Kanban topper I mounted it onto the card using
foam pads. I added a paper border also from the kit along
the top.

4. I added (one of my favourite sentiments) There is nothing
Special about this card except the person holding it
made a stopper out of silver mirri board and added
the sentiment Thank You to it.

There you have it finished - what's that I hear you say
about time she shut up waffling.

Hope you can call back tomorrow and I promise it will not
be an essay.

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting.
