Share a Smile on Friday

Morning All!

It's good to be back sharing a smile on Friday again where we link up to Annie's Stitch in Time blog each week with our happy thoughts.

I've not smiled a lot over the past couple of weeks as I caught another of those horrid bugs.  I, who, boasts that I seldom catch a cold have managed to catch three bugs in two months.

Anyway I missed the NEC last weekend and two workshops all in one week and I'd paid for them all too.  No doubt I've saved us a bit of money overall - you know what I mean .....

But I did smile when this lovely card, along with a selection of Christmas diecut sentiments arrived unexpectedly from my web buddie Jools.  Thank you so much my friend for giving me a big smile this week.

Hope you all enjoy a good week.


  1. Hi Barb,
    what a wonderful card.
    I'm not surprised this gave you a smile, as it's lovely.
    So wonderful for blogging buddies to appreciate when one is bit down because of illness, and send you something wonderful.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  2. Isn't it lovely that just something so simple as sending a card to someone can make all the difference to their world. So glad your friend cheered you up in this way - lovely card too.
    Hugs, Neet xx

  3. Aaawwwh , Barb, it is a wonder you can manage a smile. sorry you missed the show and hope you are better very soon.
    Lovely card btw.
    Have a good weekend,
    Jo x

  4. What a lovely surprise! A beautiful card to cheer you up and some goodies too.
    I hope you are feeling a bit better now. What a bummer to have missed the NEC and workshops. But think of all the money you have saved....
    I hope there are many more smiles to come your way this week,
    Thanks for visiting,

  5. Hi Barb... just hopped over to your blog to see my card on here...thought it was another trip to specsavers!! for me ..Glad it and the Christmas die cuts cheered you up and you are very welcome...Joolsx

  6. PS I also like Italian balads (I worked in Italy for more than 10 years) and I love Irish folk music. My DH leaded a 10 piece folk band before retiring. He was also the caller when they did barn dances. I love the music! Unfortunately I have two left feet, and DH woulld sometimes call me onto the floor to demonstrate! He would say: If my missus can do it, anyone can do it!

    1. Was interested to hear about your hubby. We used to do American square dancing and I loved it - all those do si dos and skirt swinging. We did ballroom for years and used to hire our village hall two mornings a week until about five years ago. Had to give it up because of the dreaded arthritis. Barbxx

  7. A gorgeous card Barb. I do hope you manage to shake the bugs off soon and manage to stay clear of any more in the future.
    Have a great weekend.

  8. very pretty card Barb. Sorry you missed the NEC....I wasn't up to trailing the stands either and so between us we have saved tons of money! to spend it elsewhere no doubt!

  9. Your friend sent you a lovely card! I would be smiling too! Too bad you missed those fun events, and had them paid for, but I chuckled when you said you saved some money overall haha! I hope you stay healthy!

  10. What a beautiful card to get Barb, and I'm so pleased it gave you so much pleasure. I've managed to get a head cold, and hubby can't understand how this has happened as I've had the flu jab, trying to explain that they are ont one and the same is making me feel worse, honestly i sometimes wonder.........
