60th Birthday Card

Happy New Year to you & thanks for stopping by my blog today x

Have you made any new year's resolutions?????

I have decided to loose a little weight .... need to tone up my belly after the few operations I have had! & I want to learn to drive. I have not been behind a wheel since I was 17, took my test & failed. Now I would like to drive an automatic.

The weather needs to go & do one now!!!! It has not stopped raining and forget about an umbrella if you venture out, it's way too windy and you end up having a battle with it to keep it where you want it, lol.

Tomorrow my hubby returns to work & it's time for me to take down my tree and clean. All ready for me to return to work on Monday. I want to have a lazy day to myself on Friday & watch Create & Craft & blog.

Today I have a 60th birthday card to share with you. It was a commissioned one. I do enjoy making these, I find it an enjoyable challenge.

The only resolution I have made so far, Sally, is to get the Christmas tree down by tomorrow! Fortunately it comes down faster than it went up!

I love the wonderful book shape of your beautiful 60th birthday card! What lovely work!
