well today i am showing the card i made for my brother and sister~in~law for their second wedding anniversary, next week!!
used one of the sketches from "2 sketches 4 u" challenge and went for a "bright and bold" colour scheme as on "my time to craft" challenge.
used laura ashley papers, magnolia wine bottle and choc box, quickutz circle flowers die and tag, papermania stickers, large brads, yellow vellum and ribbon from my stash. finished with a little glitter. (of cause the tag fits into the pocket with just a little bit showing)

at last a photo of my boys in their school uniforms!! how grown up they are both looking!!
was a busy day yesterday , met myself coming back!! had to visit the legalized vampire at the doctors for some blood tests and had my hair cut where i let my hairdresser do what he wanted ~ gosh it`s gone very short ~but after the shock , i really like it!! ( may have to invest in some hair gel ~for the ruffled look!!)
and yes our internet was down nearly all day and all evening ~seems our post code area are having problems!! paul did phone virgin media ~but they couldn`t really help or speak english!!
so couldn`t visit any of you or the friday challenges , so hope the internet holds out today!!
hope you have a wonderful weekend , byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee xx

What a great Photo of the boys, especially love Lewis with hands on hips! Can imagine how tough it is when he's 'strong willed', my sis had the same problem with my nephew, looks of an angel but stubborn as an ox LOL. Hope they both settle down to school soon. Oh, fab card too! xx
