Sugar Sweet Dreams on Grand National Day
Well it's a good day for the Grand National,was forecast rain,but the sun is shining here on the Wirral so I'm sure Aintree will be too. It was Grand National day when we married 25 years ago. It's the only time I have a bet. Both my horses have Bob and Post in their names ,after my hubby and his job. They are real outsiders but you never know.
I really hope all the horses and rider are ok ,they say the course is safer this year but there is a great risk with stepchasing, 2 horses died last year,very sad.
In my younger years I spent a lot of time at Haydock races, I dated the catering manager there and my friend worked behind the bar, in the mornings,if I stayed over, I would walk his bosses little jack Russell, and we would visit the race horses, they do have a lovely life and are treated as Royalty.
I'm rather pleased with my card today featuring a Penny Black stamp "sugar sweet dreams". The sentiment stamp was a bargin find by great impressions.I've used the fabulous free gift from last months quick cards, Summer Goodness, by raspberry roads.
I've used a martha stewart punch for a pretty cream lace edge and added a yummy strawberry button.
