My birthday

Thank you for all the good wishes for my birthay on here, facebook and craft forums.

John wasn't able to get me a present, but, with a little bit of help from me ordering for him on the internet, I received some lovely dark choccie bars from Hotel Chocolat:



and some beautiful flowers:




I've had some lovely presents, including some money and voucher, so I'll look forward to having a spending spree.

I received lots of cards and will show them on here, but probably won't get round to doing so for a day or two.

Mum came over to see us this afternoon - it was lovely to spend some time with her.

As we can't go out, we have ordered pizzas to be delivered and a bottle of white wine is chilling in the fridge (that will replace my painkillers for this evening!).

It was Ruth's turn to choose the topic for today's Salt challenge - you can read what she wrote about Purpose here.

When Ruth introduced the topic to the team, she referred to the verse from Jeremiah 29:11, which is a favourite of many of us on Salt.

I decided to make a card this time, rather than a LO. I used papers, embellishments etc from the box of PM a touch of teal and added some Sakura metallic pens to the cut out flowers.



I don't usually repeat something from the past, but remember that when Esther set a challenge 'Believe' way back in March last year, she quoted this verse from Jeremiah and this is the LO I did then:
