A birthday thank you

Morning all, well the weather forcasters got a little mixed up didn't they for the London marathon, high sunshine temperatures predicted and they got rain instead. Better for running in so I believe.

Here's my card, I'll try and stick to the point as my fingers are quite sore form gardening yesturday , clearing the stream, weeding and re supporting the edgeing. Still haven't found the leak so far , but still more to do. Not today though.

It was my son's 16th bithday on friday so he has some thankyou cards to send for his pressies that he recieved in the post. Thankfully only one or two but here is the card I have made for him to send to his god parents. since they retired early they have hardly been in the country for longer than a couple of weeks at a time so haven't seen them in ages but if this doesn't catch them at least it will be there waiting for them. I will be phoning them too just to let them know his pressie arrived safely.

The card will be entering a few challenges , more if I can manage it will have to check my list, but here goes:-

Penny black-use 3 flwers,2 buttons and 1 ribbon
Crafty Ho's- something else april showers bring. Well after being in the garden yesturday and seeing all the dandilions that have sprung up I guess they bring plenty of weeds too.
