My Babies Birthday Card!

Most of you know our Didge (Danni) is abit of a goth! Well its her 15th (OMGOSH!!) birthday at the end of March, I decided to spend this afternoon getting covered ink & generally getting messy! LOL!!
We did go out for a walk earlier & managed to walk 2 & a quarter miles.....I am determined that I won't need to use Sammy (mobility scooter) much when we are in Devon! I also need to loose about a stone & half! Since I had my hysterectomy a year ago, I haven't done anything regards exercise other than the odd game of tennis or bowling on the Wii along with our weekly walks, so need to get my stomach muscles back!! Wow still can't get over how quick that has gone, 12 months has really flown!

A couple of photos from our walk!


Nige was so happy when he finally found this beautiful great spotted woodpecker!! We could hear him ages before Nige spotted him!


Me & my Katie Kat tree hugging! lol! She was squealing because a bug had crawled on her arm, so me being the loving mom I am, pulled her closer to the tree & didn't let go! Oh bad mom!! lololol!! Oh & the tongues sticking out because there's not many photos of me without it! Hehe!

Anyhoos on with Didge's card, this is one of her favourite stamps, that I got especially to use for her & as she likes way out there colours I kinda got a bit carried away lol!!

Hi Shell

Loving the card you made for Danni .. .. I hope she doesn't see it and spoil the surprise.

Fabby photographs too.

You are a hyperactive family!! Always up to something .. .. and I am well impressed with the two and a quarter mile walk!!

Don't ask me where time goes .. .. all I know is it goes far too quickly.

Love Jules xx
