Have the Best Day Ever!

Hello Everyone, how are you all today?  I hope you are having a lovely weekend, whatever your doing.  I was working yesterday and for some reason it felt an awfully long day, but I managed to get a lot of admin done as a client failed to turn up for his counselling session, but that's the nature of my job.

Well we have had snow, and it's much colder too, caught out this morning with a ferocious shower as we were out shopping, had to sit for ages in the car until it eased up a bit.  Now the sun is shining, curious weather or what.

Just a short post from me today as one of my clients has asked me to type out a letter that he's written complaining about a doctor in his surgery who was very rude to him.  He has however penned it whilst extremely angry, so I have to make it into a less aggressive letter and fix spelling and punctuation.  So now doubt it will take me a wee while to do this.

Here is my offering for today;
LC Stamps
Papermaina Wellington Paper
MB Cloud Die
Xcut Border Punch
Core'dination card in Brown
Buttons from my box
Stickles Star Dust

The stamps are from the Club set a couple of months back and I thought they would mack a great card for my BIL Jim's birthday card.  He lives near the Forth and Clyde Canal and often takes walks along the bank, don't know if he's ever sen a barge there though, anyway I hope he likes it.

Just before I go let me thank you all for the lovely comments on my last card, love reading them and appreciate your time in visiting my blog.

Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, bye for now,

Love your card Kate, I have always fancied going the the Norfolk Broads and doing a canal boat holiday but as hubby is Ex Navy/RFA the security checks that would have to be done has put me off. He is very serious about travelling on the water. Hope work goes fine this week don't want you stressed out.
