One Layer and Anniversariy Love

 This is my card for the LIM One layer challenge this week (must try to do better photography) Just love these stamps so thought I would try to link them together and this is what I came up with..I also love Orange and pink together and thought the copper embossing powder went well (I also added a little gold to the mix and it worked well coming up lovely and shimmery but not glittery as I wanted an old vintagy look) Although the card is one layer I tried to give a layered look by adding a couple of score lines and it seems to have worked

Thirteen....unlucky for some?  No not really, it's  the luckiest number ever we celebrated our 44th Wedding Anniversary on13th Feb!!  

Just finished a 5k walk along the boardwalk near my daughters home in Dubai, and just about to sit down to a beer can chicken BBQ??!! 

Had to show you a couple of  little photos too of our lovely home made cake too courtesy of one of my grandaughters and her mum...yummy! And the other the fab ceiling at a local restaurant we went to for breakfast, its cups and saucers, teapots etc of varying shapes and sizes all made from card/paper and  suspended from the ceiling...I loved it....x

Rainbows and yumminess

they're so beautiful aren't they and that is just the theme for this weeks challenge over at LiM and I have made a CAS card using with great satisfaction the font of the same name I simply typed a few words about rainbow birthday wishes and used it as the background to the Rainbow Letters in their many colours a great way of using up many scraps of card and paper

A simple little sparkly swarovski crystal to finish......

Lots of birthdays this month, including my beautiful daughter in law Sarah...Present wrapped and a few paper feathers added along with a paper bow, looking good! 

Off for afternoon tea now with some old friends from way back...............yummyliscious!
