Wanted to get a couple of special ones for grandchildren.....well they had them for all members of family, friends, neighbours workmates the list went on and on. Then out of the corner of my eye I saw some from the cat and dog and to the cat and dog!

You will be pleased to know there were no cats or dogs in the queue at the till! :-0 :-0

I hope to post mine in the next couple of days, I always like to get them out early. Have had two so far in the post, both handmade by the GR birthday girls.

I posted mine last Thursday - mad, I know, but I like to get them out of the way. Also got the first one on the same day. Wasn't from the cat, though.

I have great difficulty every year trying to find cards for grt grandchildren, I have always sent them their own cards but its getting harder each year to find them let alone suitable ones for the elder ones who are now 13 and 15.

I don't want to disappoint them as they always look forward to getting their own card.

I hate too cards that say for sister & her husband or brother and his wife as if the spouses are an afterthought.

Glad to see you are all organised ladies
