Yippee It's Friday! And This Month's Banner Winner!

I must admit my old brain cells thought, for a brief moment this morning that it was Monday, which of course made me late for work, but after that, I'm sooo happy that it isn't! It's the weekend!! I think sometimes that it creeps up so quickly, one day I'm really going to miss it! (whoosh, there it goes, gone!)
Lovely party yesterday at Mum and Dad's, thank you to everyone who wished them well, unfortunately my camera's memory card come up with file error, or words to that affect, (effect?) and I lost all the pictures I'd taken on it, including pictures for Ebay, picture's of John's very blotchy leg, taken when he had blood poisoning (don't ask!) and the pictures of the anniversary card I made for Mum and Dad, as well as loads of pictures of friends and family all posing and doing silly things, so I can't put them on here. (funny? I'm sure I heard a sigh of relief then!)
I did get some pictures as the camera can take a few without it's memory. (it's better equipped than me!) And of course there was a writeup in the local rag about what they'd been up to over the last 60 odd years. Well, not everything!
Roz, (lady from the paper) must have dug deep into the newspapers archives, as she put in far more than I told her!!
The picture of the card I made was snapped at Mum's, so not too bright and it's the only one I took. (I usually take loads.) I knew just what I was going to do for the card but somehow had run out of everything I needed, so settled for a Forever Friends decoupage. I'll swap the picture for a better one later, if I can 'borrow' the card back!
Emma made her grandparents a card too and a few other family members also had a go at making hand made cards. It's catching!!
The cake was made by my mum's friend, Doris. Mum used to do cakes and sugar craft, but Doris kept it up and now makes all sorts of cakes to order. Bett, one of mum's friends bought her dog Jess along to the party, and she made herself at home on the garden bench! Unfortunately that's all the pictures I've got (Thank goodness! I mean...oh shame) except for one of Tom and Emma... some people just don't like their photo's taken!! (nice teeth Emma!)
This Months, I mean last Month's Banner Winner, for having my Digi Store linked on their side bar, was very close this time, winning out right by miles was The Card Making and PaperCraft Forum! (I have a link there!) But I can't count them! Close runner-up was a newbie follower (shhh!, not telling!!) but winner this time is Sue from Scoopys Stuff. Which is nice because Sue was actually runner-up last time! Sue, you've won a digi from the store or I'll draw something for you! Shell wanted a doodle of her dog, Charlie and Jackie wanted a Hedgehog on a swing! and Sue wants...a budgie!! I'll get right on that Sue!!
