Cameo 16 - Doreen's 90th

Hi peeps.  Hope you are all well.  I seem to have my day planned today food shopping and ironing!!!  Not the best way to spend your day especially as it is meant to be very hot here today.  My card today is just because I want to and I had in mind to make a card for a lady in my apartment block's 90th Birthday.  I hope I am not tempting fate as it isn't until September.  The last one I made two months in advance and the person died and hadn't been ill at all, in fact they were fitter than me even though they were 20 years older.  I will not harp any more on that subject!!!!!
