Crazy Quilt of Life

Good morning all. 
Up at silly o clock this morning as Mark's flight was at 6am, left hubby to take him to the airport though and went back to bed. Only 10 days to worry about him!!
Eldest has just got his work visa through for New Zealand this week too, so it looks like he'll be off in January for a year or more....to quote my Nana "I wish they were all still under my feet on the hearth rug" lol. Does mean I can plan a trip to New Zealand for us next year though!!

Another birthday card today rescuing a one layer card I wasn't quite happy with.

It's so long since I made the original card I can't remember where the images are from...I'll add the details if I find them on my computer.
