Good morning everyone. Hope you're all fine and dandy?
Thank you for your kind comments. I am starting to feel better now and have started to venture out again in the last couple of days. Hoping to meet Davey for a coffee (decaff mocha chocca doodah of some description) this morning as we are both out at the doctors.
June and Wendy, I would have dearly loved a tot of rum in the blackcurrant but not allowed any alcohol at the moment. . . . . . not a big drinker but you know what its like when you're told you can't have something lol!!! The cold itself was quite tame. It was the effect it had on the rest of me lol!!!
Maureen, Happy Belated Anniversary to you and George. I hope that he didn't have too long a wait in A&E or did the red roses require surgical removal from where you put them???
Now, talking of anniversaries (how's that for a neat segueway into today's card lol!!!) here we have a couple at the opposite end of the spectrum, celebrating their first year as Mr and Mrs (still in that naive flush of happiness. . . . . . . I remember those halcyon days, hahaha!!!)
Nesta's neice and hubby celebrated their anniversary in the Summer and this is the card I made for Nesta to give them.
White and pink card
HC Decorative Lace Border
SB Adorning Squares
CE Swirling Hearts embossing folder
John Lockwood flower and sentiment stamps
CE Stitched Bunting Numbers stamps
CE Crochet Ribbon
Mei Flower satin ribbon
Dovecraft teeny bling
I tried to keep to a loosely similar theme to the acceptance and wedding cards I made last year (click here and here respectively to see these).
I have managed to spend some time in the craft room whilst on enforced rest (Mr D can be masterful at times, especially when he knows he can run quicker than me at the minute lol!!!).
I'm on a mission to start using some of the beautiful papers I have accumulated as it is a bit of a waste just gazing at them adoringly now and again.
I'm also determined to get through the Hunkydory Christmas kits I bought about 4 years ago, then abandoned about 3 weeks later after being seduced by Sue Wilson caressing a Grand Calibur (It was like a Nigella licking chocolate off a spoon moment for the fellas).
Anyhoo, better tootle off and feed Mr and Mrs B. They now like tinned peaches as well as grapes and blueberries so must be the most pampered blackbirds in the area.
Mr D has had the odd mutter about them being better fed but being offered a fat ball (Maureen, leave it!!!) and a bowl of mealworms for his tea works wonders at silencing him.
Thanks again for visiting and I hope this week is kind to you all.
