Hello again,

As I mentioned before I printed off an few images onto one sheet for upcoming birthdays, it was our neighbours birthday over the weekend and her and her son headed down the coast for a couple of days giving me some extra time to finish off her card  so rather than being a fairly simple one I went all out and made some rolled roses to embellish her card… 😊 and just as they were ready to leave we arrived home from the shops and her teenage son brought me in a tray of card board scraps quite possibly from their love of heading out to garage sales, one of the scraps worked perfectly with the colour scheme of the semi completed card and I couldn’t help myself I used it for the roses, so some of what she gave me is heading back into her home.
If I didn’t want the scrap card stock she said to dump it into her recycling bin (What!!!) as even if I can’t use it I try to pass it along to someone who will, I have shared it out some for me in colours I need or use lots of,  some has made its way to one of the friendly bank tellers, who will also pass along any she’s not interested in and the remainder will be headed to a card making lady who after retiring returned to the nursing home to teach card-making to the residents, they have loved the other bits and pieces I have passed along and will undoubtedly get some enjoyment from this lot. (box is a bit over 30cm square)
