The Blessing

The Blessing was very special. It was done by a lady I used to work with in the village school, she was the school secretary, now Jane is our vicar, so it was a little bit special. Jane made an announcement about Claire's grandad passing and asked for a minute of silent prayers. The only noise to be heard was of a Cuckoo, which was lovely as dad told us all the Cuckoo rhyme every year. I never get tired of hearing it. God bless Don. 

Just a few pictures to show what a beautiful day we had with the blessing and the fantastic weather we had. Just a few miles away had heavy rain, but we were just so lucky. Some one was looking down on us. Claire was just as happy and excited this day as she was at the wedding. So many lovely memories to cherish. What a lucky person I am.

All the photo's were taken by Jake, the cool dude in sunglasses playing badminton, he's 10yrs old. He is Claire's best friend's boy, but we have adopted him as our grandson, he's gorgeous.

I Would just like to say a big thank you for all your lovely thoughts, I can't tell you how much they mean to us. You are such lovely ladies. I hope you will come back.

Have a great day

Good Morning

Firstly, may I say thankyou to Patricia for wishing me well on Saturday. My goodness where did that weekend go I know it's only a cold but it's a vicious little one, I hardly have a voice now, so now have a happy hubby.

Products I have used:-

8" X 8" White card
Orange Creata mirri board
JustRite Daisy stamp, I used the clear Perfect Medium and heat embossed with Cosmic Shimmer, called Lapis Orange Lustre
Sentiment was also from the Daisy stamp set

SB Decorative labels 1, cut  four times
flowers are SB Blooms four
2 Stick pins
Dew drops for the middle of the flowers
Leaf is from SB, I found it on the same magnetic sheet as my Delicate Asters, but not too sure if it came with them. I think I must have jumbled them all up before I started my blog and realised people liked to know what you have used. Sorry!

Anyway, I hope you like this one.
Have a great day what ever you are doing. X

You mean the world

You mean the world
 I started making this one a few days ago, but, the Bank Holiday and entertainment took over. My newly married daughter and new husband came over for a meal, and we looked at all the wedding photo;s on the computer, Such a different way of looking at photo's to when I got married, so card making got put to the side for a few days, eventually this is what I came up with. I Hope you like this one.

Products used :-

8"X8" Card
Creata mirri card
Custard coloured card,  stamped with JustRite floral thank you stamps
Embossed with Cosmic shimmer True White
