Hopefully on My Way

Hopefully if all has gone to plan I have just been picked up by coach for our three day trip to:-

Today we make our to The Cotswold's and have time at Burton-on-the-Water then continue on to our hotel in Swindon

Saturday we go to Longleat  House and have a 45 min Private Guided Tour, we then have time to go round the house on our own.  We then meet the coach and go round the Safari Park on the coach.  Which is good as I don't want to be eaten for any Lions dinner.  Lol!!  We then return to our hotel.

Sunday we leave the hotel and go to Bath to see the lovely sites including the Roman Baths and of course a spot of shopping.  We then make our way back to Hertfordshire.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I will be back on line on Monday after catching up with my washing and buying some food for the cupboards of course.

Racing Cycle 37th Birthday Card.

Morning peeps.  Hope you are all well.  If you were expecting to see a card today I am afraid I wasn't allowed to show it. Lol!!!  It is a commissioned card and I always ask if I am allowed to put it on my blog.  For the very first time the answer was NO!!!

I can tell you it was to have a picture of a Racing Cycle.  Either in motion or by a wall.  I did it in motion.  It had to be red if possible.  Happy Birthday on the front.  37 also if possible.  I made my own background paper of  part of the bike and the cycle cogs and made it into a tile in MCS.  I also used a cog die S4-386 from Spellbinders and cut three cogs of different sizes in silver Mirri card.

Inside:-

Happy Birthday to You

Happy Birthday to You

I am so happy NOW
that you are 37 too.

Happy Birthday to you.

Ha Ha

Love


That's all I can say.  Lol!!!
