LIS on your 50th birthday

Morning all and what a difference a day the earlier part of this week the weather has been glorious, real Spring like feeling in the air.
Lots of washing done and on the line so that ironing pile has just grown again.  Today it is dreich and cloudy, perfect for hiding in my craft room and catching up with some orders.
It is my eldest cousins birthday tomorrow and it's a big one!
I haven't seen him now for over three and a half years but wish him all the best for tomorrow.  We've always had good banter between us both being the eldest on either side of the family (I must point out he is much older than me) and I'm sure if we met up tomorrow it would be just as we left things last time we saw each other.

My challenge at the moment with cards it to see how minimal I can get them!  ;)  It can't get much more or can it?!  
I am really loving the clean and simple phase I am having with cards just now, no fuss at all, just straight to the point, sign it and send it out.  

More cards to make this morning and then a trip to the hairdressers for a magical makeover, known as removing the grey!
I will have a trip into town later for a few messages and then hopefully a relaxing evening in front of the box crocheting.  I'm in work tomorrow and Saturday, then hopefully having some fun with my crafty buddies on Sunday.

Erika I just love this CAS card, and perfect for a man. Husband is on the mend but he mitten be by evening - he replacing fence panels at the moment, do they never learn to just give it a few more days NO has to be done today. He is fed up with the next doors dog coming in to ours. It's funny as our dog hasn't gone over to theirs in the 10 weeks that the panels have been down, yet as a puppy he was always escaping into it. Told that ironing pile would grow again. Hazel xx
