Welcome to my crafty blog and a card for a friend who’s celebrating his birthday this weekend – and I do know that he’s partial to a cheeky little glass of red wine!

Welcome to my crafty blog on a very grey and wet day in the UK. I’m so glad we went to the flower show yesterday – it wouldn’t have been much fun today with all this rain.
