Busy doing ... ...

Hi to you all.  I feel I can say this now I have some followers (you nice, kind people).  
It’s been a busy week in Granny Crafting cottage with my weekly trip out to take Great Granny (aged 90) shopping and planning ahead for the “Visitors from Australia”. 
My son moved out there some years ago, tempted by a beautiful Australian and now they are coming to visit us in five weeks’ time bringing with them my two wonderful grandchildren so Great Granny, Auntie (my darling daughter) Papa (granddaughter’s name for her Grandpa) and I are all full of plans and excitement.  The children are even going to get to meet their cousins once removed (my nieces) one of whom is coming to  Yorkshire from America and one from the deep south of England!
Because of the distractions I seem to have only started and not finished projects (does this happen to you?) so I am going to show you a card I made a few weeks ago.  I sent it to a lovely forum friend on Craft Telly Forum for her birthday and she kindly photographed the unwrapping.  It was so nice making for a fellow crafter – it let me take all the brakes off!  This was also the first box  I have made but I knew if it wasn’t quite right the recipient would understand the thoughts.

Happy crafting for the coming week and I will try to apply myself to actually finishing projects!

For information:  The backing paper on the cards is from Joanna Sheen Precious Petals CD and the larger flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The dies I used are the lovely Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Border and Pendant.
