Brenda's Beautiful Anniversary Card
I have been dying to share this card with all of you for so long, I think it is so, so beautiful.
Brenda made this stunning card for her Daughter and Son in law's Wedding Anniversary.
It has been made using Stampin Up! 'Springtime Impressions' thinlit dies, Brenda had die cut them in both white and Periwinkle Blue and very slightly offset them, which has given a stunning effect. The finishing touches that Brenda has added are some tiny flowers down the body of the Butterfly and a pretty delicate pink rose and blue bow with a little foliage in the bottom corner. I just know that this card will be treasured forever.
Thank you so much Brenda for allowing me to share this stunning card with everyone xxxx.
We had a lovely day yesterday, we were so lucky with the weather, there wasn't a cloud in the sky, so we set off to a local beach to go out on a Pedalo with a slide (not my choice) but I would go along with anything that made the family laugh as thats what gives me the greatest pleasure! I have to say the two gentlemen that ran the Pedalo business were so kind and helpful, I also have a bit of anxiety about how I will get on things like this but I shouldn't have worried, that held onto the thing and both held my hand to help me on, making it almost effortless. It was worth it to hear the laughing and giggling, Paul went first, he is always the Guinea Pig, closely followed by the girls. Lewis played it safe and stayed on deck with me, I think he got a bit sea sick though as it was quite choppy because of the speedboats etc, (there is a very posh Marina there). We dried off and went for a stroll into the town to have a browse around the 'Looky Looky' shops (as the girls call them), I tell you you can buy just about anything down that road from a Samurai Sword to a Wooden (mens bits) bottle opener!
We had some amazing chips, from a little Dutch place that we found last year, he hand cuts the chips himself and will only use 'Agria' Potatoes (Pat ), as he was telling us that in Holland they are considered the perfect potato for chips! So I will be getting some when we come home, Pat buys them in a sack from a local garden centre but we had never heard of them.
We walked a bit more and them found ourselves at an Ice Cream Parlour, Omg, so many different flavours and they all looked yummy, I had a double coconut/lime as it was my birthday, but I did share it with Paul as he finished his quickly. Lewis and the girls mooched about and bought some gifts for friends and family.
We then headed home for a cuppa and a lie down, it was soon time to get ready to go out for dinner, Paul me and the girls had a lovely steak, Lewis had a freshly made Pizza., the girls and I shared a jug of Sangria too.
All in all a lovely day.
Thank you all for your lovely birthday wishes and your amazing cards, I was overwhelmed by the beautiful cards I received.
I feel truly blessed.
Love and hugs to all of you,
