Hornchurch via Gatwick!

While I had the flowersoft stamps out I decided to use them to make a birthday card for my sister in law who celebrates a big birthday on Saturday. I decided to send the card and gift by Special Delivery on Tuesday so that she would receive them yesterday before she went on holiday today.  Well I should have just sent it by snail mail as it never arrived. Apparently it went to Gatwick yesterday and had to be redirected to Hornchurch today. Now I have to wait until they get back and collect the package from the delivery office before they will return the £5.20 postage charge. Oh well Babs will have a nice little pressie when she gets back, unless they lose it in the meantime.

Here is the card as it may be the last we see of it.

Unfortunately the background colours are not showing up on the photo so perhaps you can just image a light shading of blue (sky) and green (grass), difficult hey!

Well enough of my complaining. Think I'll get myself off to bed reasonably early and I'll be back tomorrow.

Oh before I go just a reminder that there is a fabulous £30 voucher up for grabs over at the Crafters Companion challenge blog so well worth entering I'm sure you'll agree.

  1. It is a beautiful card, and I really hope it does reach your SIL eventually! I've had issues with RM myself recently

  2. How lovely Pat, the way you have decoupaged it is great.

    Shame about your sisters package, but at least she has it to look forward to.
