Strawberry Birthday

Has the sun been shining for you?? we've had a scorcher at the north east coast UK..
I had time to do a little crafting after the washing went on the line to dry,  then into the
kitchen before the sun made it too hot to bake..I made some yummy sausage rolls &
a pineapple fruit cake made in a pan..so moist & crumbly.. hubby needed a hand with
cleaning the filtration in the koi pond, (hes pulled his back)..then I helped son lop down
part of a tree & bag it all up..NOW my back is aching..dont like this getting old lark…lol

Onto me card, this is for my G/daughter who will be a teenager nxt wk..

Hi Christine..

Awwww I can feel his 'puff' trying to blow out that candle.. he's struggling!! Fabbie image and such perfect colouring and layout (as always.... no surprise there!!) Love that little strawberry charm too.. perfect for your card!

It's not been as hot over here I don't think.... bit overcast really, and a bit windy.... today is shaping up for the same. That cake sounds SCRUMMY.... hope your visitors enjoy it today - and that you have a lovely time together and it all goes well. And I hope your back isn't aching too much after all that work yesterday!

Big hugs
Christine (t'other one) xx
