Crystal Wedding Cards

It was my daughter's Crystal Wedding Anniversary this week (that's 15 years in case you didn't know)

My son's eldest daughter (aged 9) made this card for her aunt and uncle, from her Dad and her two sisters, when she was visiting at the weekend.   Didn't she do well?

and this was mine to them  (Had to put the owls on as she loves them so).

There was a last minute panic to get her something suitable for her anniversary as I hadn't been able to get into town to even look; and by chance, whilst passing a shop in town when I was out sorting our legal stuff, I discovered the absolute "perfick" pressie.   A Dartington Crystal vase with little crystals in the deiign.

Mixed Media Letters again

Life has been a tad fraught  for the past two weeks, and have still to get through the funeral next week.  However I did manage a few moments in the Den earlier in the week, and managed to finish the second side of these.    (with apologies if you have already seen first sides).

Card for a nephew

With the traumatic events of the past few days (although we did go ahead with the family celebration lunch for my 45 wedding anniversary as organised by my husband before he died, and we had a really lovely day in the circumstances), I nearly forgot it was one of my nephews birthdays this week, so this was a very quick card.   He used to be in the Navy and now works at the airport  I am hoping he was a Bagpuss fan too!  (wasn't everybody?.  I know my children were.)

A day of Great Sadness

Today I lost the love of my life, my soul mate, my funny best friend for 52 years, and husband for the past 45 years and five days.

Sudden and unexpected   I am devastated to say the least.

Cool Dude

A quick card for great nephew.  Couldn't resist using this image!  It is such fun.

Sapphire Wedding

It is my sapphire wedding today, and this is the cake I made (albeit we won't be cutting into it until next week, when all the family get together.

The flowers we made with cold porcelain, and airbrushed as was the decoration around the cake - the first time I have attempted to airbrush using a stencil
