Birthday & Anniversary Cards

Hi Everyone,

Sorry I haven't posted for a couple of weeks but there's been such a lot going on especially all of last week, as it was my birthday on Thursday and our anniversary on Saturday.  I've had such a wonderful few days, and such lovely cards and presents. We went for a meal Thursday evening with my son and daughter in law, and my hubby booked a surprise meal at our favourite restaurant near worcester for Friday evening.  We set out for Cardiff on Saturday morning to see Eric Clapton in concert, stopped overnight at a hotel and arrived home late this afternoon. Hubby has also been busy helping our son with decorating the Nursery, as there is only about a month to go now before the new arrival and I'm becoming very excited about becoming a Nan. A lovely week, only spoilt by having to go to work, but never mind, hey...

I am posting 3 cards today, I won't go into too much detail about them, but hope you will all like them.
The first one is a birthday card I made for a good friend of mine.  Her birthday is on the same date as mine, and she is the same age too, which is such a co-incidence. I mainly used Marianne dies, My Minds Eye and K & Co papers, flowers from Wild Orchirds, MS punches. I'm really chuffed out it came out.
My second posting is a 13th birthday card for a neighbours son.  A very easy card using card candy, co-ordination cardstock, and stamps from  Banana Frog.  My third posting is the Anniversary card I made for my hubby.  I used Clarity air ballon stamps, Cosmo Cricket papers, along with word stamps from my stash Card Candy again, Heart Nestie dies and wording using my p.c.

I hope everyone has had a good weekend although the weather could be better as it has gone quite chilly here in the Midlands again.

On a separate note, I wonder how Eileen G is getting on with her On-line course, can't wait to hear more about it... see you all soon.  Dee xxx
