Blogtoberfest Day 1

I’m really excited about joining in the fun this year. I have never been involved before but I do love having a challenge…. ‘Thing A Day’ every February makes me spring into action and so I am hoping to get the same buzz from joining in here and meeting new online friends

What I do want to share is the fact that it is my 40th wedding anniversary in the morning and so I have been making a card for Tony. I love to use my sewing machine and black thread like ink to add details. The background is a painted paper I made using wax and watercolour resist. The doily came from our local charity shop.

I have filled the card with tiny red sequin stars which will fly out when he opens it! Oh dear…..

Unfortunately, we are not able to celebrate our big event as our little eight year old grand daughter is ill in hospital. Circumstances beyond our control delayed her admission and resulted in an emergency situation arising. Maybe, as a result, I shall be able to write a few words of wisdom to share to prevent a similar thing happening to you and someone you love.  Life is so very precious and fragile...

It is very late as I write this so I shall not be blog hopping tonight! If you want to join in the fun, simply join up at

Happy Blogtoberfest & Happy Anniversary! :)

I have filled cards with glitter & the like before - messy but fun!

Sincerely hope your little granddaughter is on the mend & you get to celebrate your big anniversary with her soon.

Happy anniversary. Hope your grandaughter is okay.

Wishing you many more anniversary celebrations and so sorry to hear about your little one, who I hope is now making good progress.

Things like this make us realise, as you said; the fragility of life and the need to enjoy every moment.
Best wishes, Moira and love from Sue XX

Moira - I've read these posts backwards so I'm so sorry to hear that Hope has been in hospital. I hope you was able to have quiet celebrations and can catchup now that she is home.
Love the card - hope Tony appreciated the red sequin stars!!
