August Birthdays

We have lots of birthdays this month and these 2 cards were both on
  the 20th, yesterday.

The first one is for my lovely friend Sue,
 who I sadly left behind in West Sussex. Miss You loads!!
She just adores Forever Friends Bears. 
I did 3D him and even added another one inside!!


This next one was for my friend Jan. 
She moved up here to Suffolk, 11 years ago. 
So we are really enjoying being so close again.
The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons access site here
I do love this ribbon as it does 2 jobs, sentiment 
and embellishment.


We finally got our swing bench up.



This is one of my 5 hanging baskets. They have all done well
considering I was late doing them.


Our neighbour took us on a walk to the beach near us.
We went the long but more scenic route but was well worth it.
This was one stop and had to take a couple of pics of the view.
We didn't expect this.

We carried on through the woods and ended 
up nearer the sandy beach.
We then went the quicker route home, which only took 15 minutes!



I think this is going to be another regular walk for us.
We are so lucky to live here. 

I'm late again!! 
It's 1.10am and I have to be up at 6.30am,
 as we are doing a Craft Fair. I was going to say tomorrow
but it is today. So off to my bed!

Thanks for popping in and to those of you that leave me a message,
an extra big thank you!!

Hugs,

Carol xxxx

Gorgeous cards Carol and lovely pics of your garden and local area too. So nice to be by the sea I'm sure, particularly with the weather being so nice at the moment. Chris x

Two lovely cards Carol! Your garden looks pristine and a beautiful hanging basket too! You are so lucky as well to live so close to the sea, it was always our plan to move to the coast but after last year's events, it's not going to happen.
