You are in for a real treat

This is going to be the post of all posts.....so I will give you a couple of minutes...go switch the kettle on....make yourself a cuppa and snuggle into the sofa....you are in for a real treat.
Let's start off with me jumping to the wrong conclusions....when I received my e-mail from you know who...the Legend himself....and piccie below just in case you think she has totally gone doolally....and has lost the plot....imagined the whole thing....I automatically assumed it was all arranged by my lovely Funky Hand DT mate....Chris....but apparently I got the wrong end of the stick and  it was the lovely Paula's idea to contact Tim and this was his reply ""I would be honored. please email me her info and I will mark it on my calendar. thanks!"
HE WOULD BE HONOURED....the honour is all mine Your Royal Highness...Sir.


Now you know why I love this guy so much...he has so much talent but he is so humble and unaffected by his celebrity status and just comes across as a regular guy and I know I am a silly old moo...but this was the icing on the wonderful birthday cake.

But there is more...ooh the excitement....the morning started off with the postie (that's a Scottish word for postman) "are you collecting cards again for your friend" he asked as he handed me a mountain of cards and let me tell you I was totally overwhelmed by each and every one....absolutely beautiful...the silly old moo bit again....ended up choked with emotion and blood shot eyes ain't the best look for a birthday girl.    As a cardmaker I appreciate all the hard work that went into making these stunning cards and this looks like a gallery of the Top 20 cards in a Cardmaking Competition.

Paula......Carol.......Gayle
Sam..........Anice..........Cass
Pascale.....Suzanne......Dawn
Allison.....Dawny P......Tina
Chris.........Sarah
Shirley........Jose
Carol......Gina
Lorraine....my bestest Fiskars Buddy
and this one from my Funky Hand DT Mate Ruth had me laughing through the tears
And that's not all.......some lovely parcels of scrummylicious goodies and big hugs to Dawn from Buddy for his treats....he is your friend forever now.
Later in the afternoon....feet up relaxing....that's all the excitement over I thought......when the doorbell rang and this is for me......from the lovely delicious bestest of crafty buddies.....the lovely Dawny P.
Can I just say how lucky I am to have such lovely bloggy friends and each and every one of you is special to me......Love you all.....you have made my birthday so extra special and one more thing...I know you are probably thinking is this never gonna end....but this sums it all up......a gift from Dawn....
Will leave you now to have a lie down in a darkened room and recover from the ramblings of a mad old woman....enjoy the rest of your weekend and apologies for the piccies.....weather has been so dark and grey and today it is blowing a gale...need to wrap up cosy for our walk Buds..........be back later with the winner of the Sugar Nellie Give-Away.
Bloggy Hugs.....Kath xxxxxxxx
