Red White And No Longer Blue

Hi folks...thanks to all my lovely regular bloggy bud visitors for your get well chill out day seems to have done the trick...this old veteran has yet another adventure under her belt and once again has lived to tell the tale...all that hob-nobbing at Her Maj's Pad seems to have stirred the patriotic in me and with the Queen's Jubilee Celebrations on the horizon and the Olympics following close behind...I've been bitten by the old Red White and Blue bug and I'm not the only one...

And hey it's the first day of May...tell me...will you be dashing outside at dawn to wash your face in the May I didn't think neither...I fear it's a little bit too late for this old crafty crone and what's wrong with a few wrinkles anyway or to give them their correct scientific name...laughter lines...according to the mirror my life so far has been an absolute riot. Time to share a quick Red White and Blue playtime crafty offering from the cubbyhole crew...
And after a weekend of lovely Spring like weather...I have a question...
