A very warm welcome to my blog, which is mostly about card-making, a bit about work and family, and a few odds and ends. I am fairly new to this blogging lark, so please bear with me if I make some glaring errors.

I'll be delighted if you would like to become a follower, so please leave me details of your blog, as I'd love to visit.

Golden Wedding Anniversary

I hope that this will be the last of the Bookatrix cards for some time to come, as I've now run out of inspiration with these.  I know everyone always loves them, but it's not easy to keep coming up with a new version each time. 

This particular one is for my daughter's in-laws, Bob and Carol, who are celebrating their golden wedding anniversary on Friday.  Louise is very lucky to have such a lovely couple as in-laws, and they are fantastic grand-parents, driving up from Dorset to look after the little ones when needed.  It didn't happen in my day!!

The gold and cream cardstock are from A Touch of Craft (at the Ally Pally exhibition in September) and the little flowers are from WOC, with the  bead sprays from Hobbycraft.  The heart die is one from cuttlebug and is my absolute favourite: I use it nearly all the time; and there are the usual peeloff corners and borders and names from Art of Craft.  Many thanks to dear Janey on the Imag-e-nation forum for the lovely anniversary verse.

Thanks so much for visting my blog and for any comments you wish to leave.

xx Jill
