First Things First......



I would like to say a very belated `Happy Birthday` to Vicki. I am so behind with things ( and cards) this is the first chance I`ve had to blog! I hope you had a fab day Vicki...I see you were spoilt with many yummy pressies, especially from hubby, you lucky girl! I would also like to thank Vicki for the beautiful card that she sent me, it was such a lovely thought. Anyway the reason I`m behind is my gorgeous weekend away. For my 10th wedding anniversary my hubby took me to Florence, well it was amazing and yes it was romantic...say no more...lolI was so behind with stuff I made him a card the night before......the result was a very feminine card!!!! lol . I had to give it to him as it was all I had time to do. Its the thought that counts!
I overlaid the card with Vellum, printed the words on my PC then ripped the paper and layered them onto various papers and cs. I used ribbon from my stash and stamped the flourish with a foam stamp from QVC. He said he didnt mind it looking feminine........but then he didnt have much choice...lol.

Hiya Jools,

sounds like you had a wonderful time in Florence, I love the card you made for hubby, it's gorgeous, beautiful colour scheme. I saw those stamps on QVC and by the time I ummed and arrhed as to get them, they had sold out...boo hooo!!!

You are more than welcome for the card and many thanks for my birthday wishes.

As for the pin, I searched the net for ages and came across this site

Gorgeous card Jules, love the colours and the layout. Wow what a fab anniversary present... a trip to Florence! I've been married 22 yrs next month and have only managed a trip to "Ourgate" and not even on our anniversary. I dont get presents, hubby says what more could I want...I have him! Could think of a list as long as my arm ... but instead keep mouth shut and smile sweetly! PMSL! Jillix
