A Very Special Day!!!

Good Morning Ladies,

Today Paul and I celebrate our Silver (25th) Wedding Anniversary, I can hardly believe that we have been married that long, the time has literally flown!
I will say that I am very lucky to have married my best friend and my Soulmate, like everyone we have had our share of hurdles to over come (more than our share to be honest)! They have made us stronger as a partnership!  I feel like I should be giving Paul a Long Service and Good Conduct medal, poor chap has had to put up with a lot!
Anyway today we are going to London, my eldest daughter Becca has treated us for our Anniversary and birthdays, we are staying overnight and going to see a show too.  We are also hoping to fit in a River Cruise and Afternoon Tea on Thursday.
I can't wait, I am so looking forward to having Paul all to myself for two days!

Today's card is the card I made Paul for our Anniversary, using my new Spellbinders Curved Borders 2 die set, a Creative Expressions Embossing Folder, and a few other bits and pieces. A card I saw on Pinterest inspired my design!  I have lost more ours in pinterest than I care to admit!
Fingers crossed he likes the card !

That's all from me ladies, I have a busy day ahead, I hope you have a great day too!

Love and hugs


  1. Sandra & Paul,
    Many congratulations to you both on your Silver Anniversary, I hope you both have a lovely time you both deserve it.

  2. Morning Ladies

    Congratulations Sandra & Paul, hope you have a fantastic time in London. Great card, it's lovely.

    Yesterday was sooo busy at work do it was really nice to meet up with my friend last night. WA sat for 2 1/2 hours chatting, looking st the pouring rain then we had lightening.

    Today I have a 2 hour meeting first thing then my emergency dentist appointment at 12noon. My tooth is very painful if I eat on it so I'm going to take some painkillers before I go to the dentist just in case. I know she'll need to do a filling but it will probably just be a temporary one until after my holiday.

    Tesco shopping tonight after work then can relax.


    1. Hi Michele
      I hope the dentist does your temporary filling and that it lasts until you come back from your holiday.

  3. Hello Sandra,
    CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR SILVER WEDDING ANNIVERSARY. What an achievement 25years. Glad you are able to celebrate this memorable day.
    I hope you have a great time in London, what show are you going to see? Enjoy your river trip. Love Brenda xxx

  7. Morning Sandra and all,

    Sandra and Paul. Many congratulations on your Silver Wedding Anniversary. Have a wonderful time in London and enjoy your river cruise. Love your card Sandra.

    Janet, so glad you hospital visit went ok. Good that you can do a bit of crafting but don't rush into doing anything too strenuous.

    Michele, oh poor you. Do hope the dentist goes ok today.

    Linda. WOW I remember prefabs in Liverpool. They were built on the outskirts of the city and we're still being lived in upto the end of the 50 S. I must admit they didn't look that good but definitely served a purpose.

    Well the promised rain didn't arrive yesterday in or area but it is cooler today. It was must more pleasant walking Gracie this morning.

    I'm off to get my hair done later, call and see my friends and then relax.

    Everyone take care for the next couple of weeks. I want to come back to everyone being ok. Will pop in if and when I can.
    Bye for now.
    Love Valxxx

  13. Hi Sandra and all in the Cafe today.
    Paul will love his card, it is gorgeous my lovely, another one to go on my Pinterest board : )
    Sorry I haven't managed to pop in but the last couple of days have been rather busy. I must get some rest tomorrow and Friday so I am ready for Ally Pally, there's no way I am going to miss my day out with Mum, Sandra, Paul and Pat, and catching up with Maria, Brenda, Lynda and Terry : ) Sorry we won't see you there Karen : (
    Brenda, your window card is gorgeous, the embossed "brickwork" looks so good beside that pretty window. I must get my small window out and have a play after seeing this beautiful card. I hope you aren't too busy, see you on Saturday : )
    Anne, sending you hugs for Friday, at least once it is out and healed you will be pain free, thank goodness x
    Maria, I hope you manage to have some dog free talk with your sister. See you on Saturday : ) x
    Lynda, I hope you are taking things easy so you are ok for Saturday, see you and Terry at Ally Pally : ) x
    Pat, I hope you had a safe and trouble free journey home. Make sure you don't go doing too much before Saturday either please. I want to see you fighting fit : )
    Janet, I am so glad the Doctors visit went well and you are now able to do some gentle crafting. What a shame you still can't do any housework, far too strenuous, except some light dusting maybe!!! : )
    Mum, yes we had a nice day at the beach, ended up at Boscombe, where the rain, thunder and lightning started as we parked on the seafront! It was only a 5 min storm, but it did spit with rain a few times during the day, it was overcast but nice and warm though. Little Chris loved the sand and sea. He wanted to sit down in the waves and got quite cross that we wouldn't (and couldn't) let him go! I am so looking to seeing you on Friday, when we will be able to have a proper catch up!Love you xx
    I'm sorry if I have missed anyone that is not feeling too well, my brain is trying to get around what needs to be done first today!
    Sending love and hugs to you all, with extras for Janet, Anne and all in need. Take care xx

  14. Ladies, just popping backing to hope all of you going to Ally Pally on Saturday have a wonderful time, a great meet up and all the goodies you wish for.
    LINDA, Sorry I keep spelling your name wrong, for a reason of its own my tablet keeps changing the "y" to an "I". Technology eh!!!

    It was another very warm day, the washing dried in no time at all. I was cleaning everywhere downstairs, have SIL coming for the day tomorrow so....hihi
    Oh, my conversation with my sis went as usual in the same rut. I know it is her life but would be nice to hear about the others without me jumping in when she tells me about her four paws and others. I love her dearly but sometimes....:) I'll see you later hugs ,Maria xxx
