Well here we are again, how fast the weeks fly especially now we are on countdown to our sons wedding, poor things have been having building work done as well, which didn't go to plan, major stress all round but thankfully it is nearly sorted now.

My desk this week hasn't changed much from last week apart from it's a bit tidier and the wedding card is nearly finished, I just have the sentiment and finishing touches to do, oh and a box to put it in, oh joy, not my favourite things to make, usually takes me a few attempts before the card actually fits in the box!
I made quite a few flowers from different card, handmade paper etc and used the best of the bunch, added a pearl in the middle, cut silver leaves out and decided to go for it and glue it all together, always scary when you've spent weeks on it, just in case it gets spoiled at the last part, been there done that, LOL

Not sure why this photo is side ways on, I don't have a clue how to turn it on here, in my photo album it's the right way up. Last week I explained that a gift for a 44th Anniversary is groceries and my dearest husband said I could have the grocery cheque, well it arrived all 2.48 Euros of it, I've already spent it, on liquorice, how romantic is that!!

You'll be pleased to hear that our Anniversary is actually on the day of the wedding so it will be a big celebration especially as the wedding is in Poland so we will be having a mini holiday as well, we are all meeting up at a hotel in Stansted of all places!
 We fly in from Spain, eldest Son lives in London, he's collecting youngest Son from Heathrow who is flying in from San Francisco, as you can see nothing's simple in our family!

That's me for this week, have a great weekend.

  1. That card looks amazing - Happy WOYWW - BJ#35

  2. I would love to see a picture of the card when it's finished, looks gorgeous, so much work has gone into it, they'll love it. When I've had photos stubbornly refusing to stay the right way, I have cropped it a little, re-saved and that little bit of attention seems to make it stay the right way round?! Good luck with the wedding and Happy Anniversary. Thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my blog :)
