The day after!




Well, as I said, I was rather emotional yesterday, less so today but a little tired, happy, too! Thank you so much for all your lovely good wishes & happy birthday's. No cards in the pile for tomorrow so I might have a rest from posting & have a chance to visit & read others blogs! We'll see what turns up in the post.

I know I'm not quite finished, but I have been amazed at everyone's generosity, the care put into each card, & so touched by the tenderness & friendliness of virtual strangers who have become virtual friends, all joining me in the emotonally charged epic journey of becoming an important decade older. Again than you.

Todays card was from Laura from Berwickshire, UK. Her card is just beautiful, those lovely roses, sumptuous burgundy silk & pretty lacey bits make a lovely card.



I am enraptured, thank you.

I had a surprise  card in the same package, from Laura's  other half , Rich, who wanted to join in (thanks so much!)
It's stunning in black & white, the perfect way to see a Michaelmas daisy.




I am delighted, thank you.

I have just been catching up on your last 3 posts and all the beautiful cards you've received since Tuesday. I really enjoyed your picture post the other day. I was watching the film 'Blessed' at the weekend and I see it was filmed on Isle of Ornsay. The views and atmosphere were beautiful.

I'm glad you had a lovely birthday with your family. Welcome to 50! :o)

Another lovely card! Emma, you deserve to take a break and enjoy your new age. I can tell you, being in your 50's is different. Some good and some not so good but hopefully you will embrace the good!
