Second Joint Birthday Card

Hello Everyone - Friday tomorrow - where has this week gone? I've spent this afternoon at home waiting for a plumber, who phoned late afternoon to say he would not make it today (gggrrrr!!!). We only have a small problem with a tap that won't stop running (all of a sudden this morning). But (in a whisper LOL!) I don't trust my husband with DIY and repairs - he started fiddling under the sink this morning, trying to find an isolator tap (?), he turned something, and then there was a gushing of water (OMG!) - I think he'd turned something that's linked to the washing machine! The bl**** stop cock is only in the cupboard next to the sink - why didn't he just switch that off straight away like I wanted him to!!!! I'm dreading putting the washing machine on now! The plumber is supposed to be here at 9.30 tomorrow - which means I've got to take time off work to wait again.

Anyway, on to my card. This is the second of the cards for Eleri to take to the joint birthday party on Sunday.

The image is On the Bench from Di's Digi Downloads, and sentiment from Pollycraft again. The papers are some scraps from my Kay and Co bumper pack. I love the paper thread that I found in The Works - I think I had a pack of six different colours for 99p, quite a lot of thread of each colour too. I also love the buttons - they were lime green, but I coloured them with a brown Sharpie!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

CES Challenge - All Creatures Great and Small - my image has a little doggie!
The Crafty Pad - Birthday
Craft Your Days Away - Anything Goes

Well, that's enough from me for now. Thanks for popping by!

Love, Andrea xx
