Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone. I didn't have a card to show  today as the ones I've made either haven't reached their recipients yet or I didn't like them enough to show you so I've gone through my cards to see which haven't been posted and found this one.

I made this for Stuart's mum and dad for their Wedding Anniversary last year. I'd fallen in love with Leonie Pujol's Entwined Collection heart die. Looking at the card now it looks at bit sparse for me but I'd probably left it to the last minute to make. Anyway, I hope you like it.

Chris and Lexi have now moved on to South Korea where they visited a themed café.

Can you believe it's a Poo themed Café? As you can see their drinks came in toilet shaped cups and Lexi is wearing a Poo hat! I'm pleased to say she didn't buy the hat :D. Seemingly visits to more themed cafés are planned. I dread to think what the other ones are like.

That's this post coming to an end. I've just got to say thank you for your continuing support and friendship. Hugs to you all especially Valerija and her little boy.
