I've just realised I've not posted my DT card, oops my bad lol.
We've had a busy day & I was starting to feel myself about to doze off to sleep after lunch but wanted to paint the decking while the weather was so nice, as I was half asleep I went & slapped my face, you know as you do trying to wake yourself up a bit, only it was a teeny bit too hard & it brought tears to my eyes but I couldn't do anything but laugh which did the trick & woke me up lol. About an hour later I'd finished painting & got changed to go for a walk to the park with hubby & Dude (dog) & quickly checked the state of my mass of curls in the mirror before going out & was horrified to see the left side of my face looked like I either actually had stage 2 of "slapped cheek syndrome" or a nasty encounter with a cosmetics sales woman & I'd managed to escape before she'd got to the right side of my face lol. Cold water didn't help much so I ended up wearing Jodie's big sunglasses out & keeping my head down when we saw anyone, & before you say it I'm an idiot I already know lol.
Anyway waffle over today I have my
I made this little card about 3 weeks ago for Ali's youngest boy Adam & that young man is very lucky he actually got "Adam" on the front of his card as for years we've called him "Sindy" or "Sindy Lou", long story, poor boy! Adam sounds so wrong now so I had to write the card out to Sindy so he didn't escape it lol.

I was in a colouring mood and discovered a set of Forever Friends Easter stamps in my stash that had never seen ink & wanted to use them but I didn't want to make any more Easter cards as I don't have any use for them so they just end up in the bin, so I decided to make some gift tags to attach to everyone's Easter eggs.
In total I made 18 but have delivered most of the eggs before I realised I hadn't taken any piccy's so here are the 5 I had left. The photo isn't the best as it was a rush job but here they are
