Morning all we are back from a lovely weekend of celebrations in Portsmouth.<:-PFriday was our wedding anniversary (44 years!) and Saturday was my DIL Lara's 30th birthday. We were met with Champagne and a lovely meal that Keir had cooked for us and here is the card that I made for Jim:

I used a create a card die and sponged through it with lilac ink and backed it with lilac card.  The little hearts were the waste and the metal love charm came from The Works.

We went out for a lovely lunchon Saturday at a mill house overlooking an estuary with lots of swans and in the evening we babysat while Lara hosted a dinner and dance evening at a restaurant in Port Solent.

This is the card I made for Lara who absolutely loves an afternoon tea~O) 

Created using some diecuts and freebie toppers from my stash.

We went to Finchdean on sunday for a big family lunch with all the in laws, aunts and uncles and the weather was lovely so Charlie enjoyed himself in the large garden :)

This weekend was also the birthday of my goddaughter and a very good friend and these are the cards I made for them:

A bit of triple stamping using SU French Foliage stamps

Just a simple diecut card with some ink sponged around the edges

Enjoy your week and before I forget a big thank you to my three new followers for choosing to follow my blog >:D<

Well congratulations ( belated ) of course for your wedding anniversary, is it possible you have been married so long you look soooooo young. All of the cards are fabulous but must confess my favourite is for your hubby I love the delicate tones on this and of course all of those little hearts. Sounds like you had an amazing few days surrounded by friends and loved ones.
