Another week flies by......

I hope you are all keeping dry and safe from the elements.........this week has flown by with lots of hic-cups along the way, phone system and PC going down, but two of them lol......Saturday was Mum's 98th birthday and like the Queen, it has spread over three days, Friday saw a buffet for 6 visitors, Saturday saw a buffet for 8 people and today I have my neighbours coming for tea....... so I really should make this quick and go to clean up and bake again.

8 x 8 card
Craftwork cards 'shabby vintage' papers (bought at craft show)
edges painted with metalic gold
Flowers wild orchid
Cheery Lynn Fanciful flourish die
corner is memory box die (cut but Aunty Sue, thanks)
Ribbon from ribbon girls
buckle and hearts from stash
Wooden letter are a bargin buy from Rymans stationers,(there was 62 capital letters and 58 small letters in bags for £3.25p so I got a bag of each lol)
Letters glued and glittered
Lashing of stickles on flowers

I decorated the inside to match.
It was hard to photograph with all the glitter

Thank you to Aunty Sue and Janette for their beautiful cards.

Well, that's all from me, I feel a bit rotten today, I think I have a cold coming, can't remember the last time I had one! lol

Enjoy your Sunday and thank you for your visit
