1st Anniversary & 40th birthday cards & Pictures of Chelsea Flower Show

Hi Folks,

Sorry I haven't posted much over the past couple of weeks, but we've been busy bees off on our travels.  We have just arrived back from London, having had a great 4 days.  We took in some sight seeing but the main reason for our visit was the Chelsea flower show.  The tickets were christmas presents from our son and daughter in law, and very much appreciated too.

I've posted a couple of cards today, the first one being the first wedding anniversary card for our son.  It doesn't seem 2 minutes since we were in Italy this time last year for the wedding, doesn't time fly by...
I've used a mixture of Kanban die cuts along with Marianne Creatables leaf swirly die, organza ribbon aND MS leaf punch across the bottom.  My second posting is a simple 40th card for a neighbours birthday using mainly Kanban die cuts and just adding a few extra bits and bobs from my stash.

I've attached a few pics from the flower show that I thought you may all like to see.  Eileen.. thanks for your comments, and yes we do know we are having a little grand daughter, we have 12 little boys in the family and only one little girl, so another girl will be so nice.  Hope to post again soon with my new baby card.. see you soon.  Dee xxx
