A Stunning Anniversary Card and Happy Birthday Lilian !!

Another of our Amazing Anniversary Cards 

Happy Birthday Lilian 

Good Morning Ladies,

First of all today I would like to wish our lovely friend Lilian a Very Happy Birthday,
I hope that you have a lovely day planned Lilian are your visitors still with you? I'm sure our Margaret will have popped a cake into the cafe for you xxxxx

Today's fabulous card was made for Paul and I for our Silver Wedding Anniversary by Lilian, it has a lovely double pierced frame, the main part of the card is a beautifully intricate die cut that Lilian has cut in Silver, which works so well, the pretty centre piece is a Gorgeous metal heart embellishment,  it almost looks engraved it has that much detail on, a few pretty white flowers is all that is needed for the finishing touches of this stunning card, both Paul and I loved your card, thank you Lilian xxx

Well I am not sure what the plans are for today, I am pretty sure that Pat is coming today as she has dentist tomorrow.  I am hoping and praying that Sue will be able to join us too, if so I think we may try and go for our 'Anniversary meal' as we weren't able to celebrate back at the start of August as Pat was in hospital.  So all being well that's what will happen today! 

I hope you all have a lovely day whatever you have planned, Michele, have a wonderful time away xxx

Love and hugs to all,

    Have been up since 4, asked hubby if he wanted to go shopping but it was a bit early for him :) doing it later. Not looking so nice as yesterday but going for my walk in a minute. Had a bad afternoon, nothing went my way and my left arm was hurting so bad so nothing got done. Having a scan on the 23d, didn't think they were doing them on a Sunday and I missing ww. Might miss it this Sunday too if we going to Colchester to see my Step-son. Will have to go closer to home on the Monday evening if so because it's no good if not going. Have some idea's for my sons birthday card but not put anything together yet and will have a look at the cc too this afternoon so that me for now. Love and hugs to you all, Maria xoxo

    1. Oh Maria I'm so sorry to hear you're in such pain I know it won't treat the pain but may give you a little relief but have you tried Tiger Balm

    2. Hi Maria. Hope your pain has eased and you have a better day today. Enjoy your walk :-) xx

    3. Hi Maria
      I'm sorry you had a bad night and your arm was very painful. Hopefully the scan at the hospital will pinpoint what's wrong. Take care my friend.

    4. Hi Maria, I'm sorry you have had a bad night, is it worth ringing the hospital to see if they've had a cancellation and can bring your scan forward? I would say it's worth a try you've got nothing to lose. Take care sending you gentle hugs XX

  9. Afternoon Ladies,

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY LILIAN, hope you have a fantastic day.

    Arrived home late last night with a stinking cold and chest infection, jumped into bed and woke up about 10 ish, decided to have a lie in then couldn't get back to sleep as brain wide awake with things to do. So first load of washing now finished, a mountain of mail and 23 birthday cards to open with another cuppa Yorkshire Tea, oh how I have missed a proper brew whilst away. The Americans might have 50+ flavours of coffee but do not know how to brew a proper cup of tea. Have been on the PC for over an hour catching up with messages, emails and notices. Now have brain fog. Travel tales to post and photos to send to Sandra later on.
    So many Café post to catch up too. See you soon

    Love 7 hugs
    Cheryl xxx

  10. Afternoon all Meant to say earlier that the card you made for Sandra and Paul is gorgeous LILIAN

  11. Hello All, what can I say , I am totally overjoyed with all the cards that I came home to today, I think it's the most cards I have ever had, THANKYOU ALL so much.
    We arrived home a couple of hours ago, we have had a couple of lovely days walking our legs off, going to have fish and chips for supper for birthday treat.

    Will be in tomorrow with my views on the Misti which I have the A 5 size one, as I see Sandra was asking about it.

    Going to put some washing on now and unpack the bags.

    Will be in tomorrow, hugs Lilian

  12. Hi Sandra and all,
    my Internet has been off all day just tried one last time before bed and hey Ho it's working.
    Lillian, hope you've had a lovely day and enjoyed your fish and chips. Love the Anniversary card you made.
    Maria, do hope you had a better day today and your in less pain. Like Karen, I think Tiger Balm is very handy to have in the cupboard. It has eased my back ache on occasions.
    CHERYL,glad you had a good holiday but sorry you've come back with a cold. I think the air con on the plane has a lot to answer for. It seems like every time I fly I end up with a cold?
    Well off to bed now. Have a good night everyone.
    Love Valxxx
