Today is a rather special day...why?..because it is my darling John's birthday!
(Actually, two friends also celebrate their birthdays today).
I made John's card using this Lili of the Valley image, not only because it is so
cute, but for two other reasons...recently John bought himself a beautiful
classical guitar, and also because many years ago we were owned by
the most lovable dog, Hector, who would sit beside us when we
were rehearsing and join in singing with great enthusiasm!
(See photo at the end of this post)
A closer look at the adorable duo.

I had forgotten I had this die which I bought last year, but discovered it
when I catalogued my dies recently. It cut and embossed like a dream.
John and Hector, in the mid 1980s. I wish we had owned a video camera then,
so we could have recorded the full 'performance'. Dear Hector had his own
chair beside the piano, and would watch John closely while he played the
introduction, then as we began to sing, he would join in. Rehearsals were
often longer than planned, because we would be doubled over with
laughter at the amount of 'drama' and 'expression' that Hector
would put into his 'Oscar-winning performance'.

It is after 11.30pm, so I am off to bed...I have to be up very early tomorrow morning, as I am on duty at the Fort all day. We are apparently in for a VERY cold day, with gale force, westerly winds. I don't mind the cold, but the winds make life rather miserble.
Thank you for visiting, and until next time, "happy crafting".
