A new arrival and a visit with old friends!

Have had a real nice two days despite having to attend a conference in Leamington Spa.
Whilst at Leamington I took the opportunity to meet up with Maureen! (You'd think we'd be fed up meeting exch other by now wouldn't you? lol... During the Summer we might only manage to see each other once... from September to April though we manage quite a few meetings! So last night I drove to Coventry and met with Maureen (and her long suffering OH who by now must be thoroughly sick of the sight of me....) and had some tea. Maureen always brings gifts and last night was no exception... another box of goodies for my Charity Day and some fabby papers for me along with some 'Somerset Studio' magazines. So my reading matter is all sewn up for the next few weeks!
After the conference today I stole some time to go visit another friend Sue (Sassy) who I haven't seen for such a long time.... she's recovering from an op and looks really well all things considered. It was wonderful to see her and she also had made me two fabulous presents.
So I want to say a huge thank you to them both - I am so lucky to have such wonderful generous friends and I appreciate them more than I can ever tell them.
So, after a murderous drive home (please please please someone dig up that M6 and replace it with something less stressful and accident strewn), I collapsed in the chair and have just popped on here for a few minutes.
This card I made a couple of weeks ago and as the challenge on Digital Tuesday this week is a Blue and White colour combo I have submitted it!
Martha Stewart lace punch, Cuttlebug swiss dots folder and a free image from Digital 2 for Tuesday coloured with promarkers used to make the card. I printed the sentiment on the PC.
