Mixed Up Saturday


Good Saturday Morning Ladies, 

What are you all up to today? We are spending our last full day here is Spain, it barely seems possible that we were just settling out on our journey 3 weeks ago today, the time has flown by, we have enjoyed every minute, after the most horrendous year, I don't think either of us realised how much we needed some time to ourselves.  Tomorrow we leave and spend 2 days travelling home, I really enjoy the journey too, I wasn't really excited about spending our 30th Wedding Anniversary in the car but thinking about it realistically we get to spend the whole day together and I couldn't wish for anything better.

Today I am sharing the absolutely incredible  'card'  that our Sophie designed for my birthday, she has a theme of creating our birthday cards around films that we enjoy, I absolutely love the film 'Hidden Figures' so thats what my card is designed around,  
Sophie has hand drawn us all aa different characters from the film. If you look closely you see Becca's face in the moon, I was absolutely blown away by the level of detail in the background, right down to the equations!  I have no idea where she gets her ideas from, she has no idea how incredibly talented she is.  When we get home I am going to get this printed and framed. 

Thats all I have for you today, 

I hope that you all have an enjoyable weekend, 

Love and hugs to all of you,

Sandra                                                                                  xxxxxx
