Card Winner ...

Hi Everybody,

What a beautiful day and off to play with Isabella again this afternoon.  My eldest Granddaughter has been staying with me for the last two weeks and tomorrow she is heading off back to Australia to work for another two years.

It has been lovely to see her again and so last night as a farewell dinner we all went out to our favorite restaurant and had a family meal. Griff took some photos and I thought I would share one with you.
So here we are in all our glory me holding my Great Grandson with my two daughters either side of me and my Great Granddaughter is at the front.
 Then my two Grand daughters are each side of them and my Grandson is on the right of the picture

Now on to the draw for yesterdays card and the name this week is yours 
Marjorie Bates
would you email me please with your postal address to
and the card will be on its way to you straight away.

Have a good weekend

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx


  1. Good morning Christina,
    What a beautiful family you have and isn't that wee lass just a picture looking so grown up. They don't stay the size of your great grandson for very long do they and grow up oh so quickly. I hope that your granddaughter has had a lovely time back home and that she has a fabulous two years away again. Thank you for showing us your family and i'm glad that you all look as though you had a great night although i think Mum will be in tears at her "baby" girl going away again.
    love and crafty hugs

  26. Congratulations Marjorie, on winning such a lovely card!
    So pleased you have had such a lovely time Christina! I recently spent some time with my closest friend of 53 yrs, she came over from Australia to visit family and friends. It is the first time we have seen each other since she emigrated in 1981, but it was just like it was just a couple of weeks since we last spoke face to face! I was so sad to have to say goodbye to her but very happy for the time we spent together! So I know how you must have felt!
    I love the photo, what a lovely happy picture it is too, and it is amazing how fast Isabella has grown! She is going to be a real heart-breaker! lol!So beautiful!
