Bon Voyage

Hi all just a quick post today want to make the most of the sun while it is shinning. I have been married 34 years today you would get less for life LOL.

This cad is for a a work colleague who's friend is going to live in Australia with her new partner, very big step to take with someone you have only known for 9 months, but hay I was married within 13 months of meeting my hubby and here we are 34 yrs later!!

I had to use this lovely little Koala bear that is courtesy of Jo from only joking
Have a great Sunday and I hope the sun is shinning where you are.

Friday Sketchers 11 and Michelle's challenge part 2

Well this must be a record two cards in one day!!
This time I used the Friday Sketchers layout and the gorgeous sparkly pink paper (click on the picture for a better look) is from the DCWV stack that Alex sent me and the H&S stamped image is from Deb thank you so much girls.
This card also fits Michelle's blogoversary challenge part 2 which is to make a card with one basic colour.

We have been to my friend Bev's for a BBQ today and there were children there so Honey is worn out and DH is asleep after a few beers no cooking for me tonight after the fab food "The Ram" cooked...better known as Chris, Bev's DH. My DH loves to give people nicknames so this one is because they live just over the bridge in Wales and the fab food he cooked like Gordan Ramsey!! I know I know he does it to everyone !!!

Here are a couple of pictures of Honey with the children.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

CCT and Michelle's Sketch Challenge

At last a card!!
CCT this week is to use animals only no people.
I have used Michelle's sketch which she has set as part of her one year blogoversary celebrations.
I have made this for a friend at work who has had major back surgery.
Thanks for looking Sue :o)

My Secret Sister is Alex

This is my final secret sister package and it has been revealed that Alex has been sending me all the lovely goodies.
You can find Alex's blog here she is a very talented lady who manages to post nearly every day I always look but don't always have time to comment.
This is true of lots of blogs that I visit most days in my lunch break at work but sadly I don't always have time to comment.
This time Alex has sent me my favourite DCWV glittered papers and it is the summer stack which I don't have and also this fantastic box of DCWV pet related die cuts Thank You so much.

Thanks for looking Sue :o)

Don't forget the blog candy I have put a new picture on with everything in hope you like it enough to play!!

Thanks for looking
