Well this is it, my final card for Creative Expressions. 18 months, where has that time gone.
I know we all talk about the horrendous weather we have been having and felt that down south we had got away with it lightly, but today is absolutely awful. The wind is so strong that I am sat in the bedroom typing this as the patio doors in my workroom are creaking so much and Bubble & Squeak won't even go in there. I've had to go out in the garden to retrieve one of our bins and pick up cardboard strewn all over the lawn, and that wind does nothing for you hair do! it was standing on end. As I bent over to pick the rubbish up the wind blew my shirt up. If my neighbour or anyone walking in the lane saw that they would have run to the nearest sick bag.
Claire's baby shower was absolutely fantastic. She had no idea until she saw a couple of her teacher colleagues cars in the drive, even then she said to Toby, what are they doing at mum & dad's. Claire never stopped laughing from the time she arrived until the time she left. Anthea had arranged games and everyone joined in, it was like everyone had known each other for years. The funniest game was the nappy game, you melted different chocolate bars and then smeared it onto the nappy, the instructions then said the game players can sniff, pick, lick or taste. I've never heard such comments & laughter. Claire & Toby came back on Sunday for brunch and it was another good get together, it was so sad Craig couldn't make it as his car has coolant problems and didn't want to chance a break down on the major road works coming out of or going into Bournemouth.
Anthea, Jake & her mum arrived lunch time on Friday and went home about 5 o'clock on Sunday. Although we all had a good time Anthea & I were cream crackered. I'm still in clearing up mode and I am still finding baby confetti in all the rooms, so tidying up will be on going for a while.
My niece Georgina came over for the baby shower and brought back my invite that I had made for her all tied up with a raffia bow. So on Thursday I will put pictures of the invites, and the crackers & goodie bags for the baby shower on my blog.
Hope to see you all again same, time same place next Tuesday. I have all week now to look through all my other crafting products to make my next card, post CE .
