Selection of Special Occasion cards


From a rather wet and chilly Somerset today, I am adding today some of the recent cards I have made.

I went to the doctors yesterday, firstly she is referring me to a surgeon for an op, well I expect I will have to wait months. While I was there my doctor looked at a mole and said she would refer me, I had a phone today at 3.30 from the Royal United Bath within 24 hours of seeing her, to say that I had have an appointment with two weeks and would I like to to be seen at Frome Hosp, of course its easier for me to get to so when I get back from holiday I have an appointment on the 22nd to see someone about this mole. That's going to a lovely thought to keep it out of the sun and if uncovered to ensure to it has sun cream on holiday.

My first card is a 21st birthday card for Becky our niece who is 21 next week. She is just finishing her 3rd year at Lincoln Uni and doing her final exams, which will be finished by her 21st. So she can relax and enjoy her party.

My second card is a wedding anniversary for our Friends who is on the same day as Becky's 21st, I used a Dawn Bibby image that was recently on QVC, I don't buy a lot of things from the TV but these images are cute and I fell in love with them. I think they made some interesting and different cards

My third card is for my friends daughter who was our bridesmaid when we got married. Stella got engaged to Alex, not meet him yet but I felt I had to make a card for them, and again I used a Dawn Bibby image. I was running out of time so I had to make a quick card. I Hope they like their card.

My forth card is my June friendship card for cakelady do crafts member, I have made this card with some black peel offs which I found in the garden centre at Abingdon when we went up over the bank holiday, I used a gold card and peach parchment and finished it off with ribbon and gold peel offs. It was a simple card but I think it looks very different, they say less is more and I think this card is one of them.

This will be my last posting for a week as we fly to Teneriffe on Friday, this will be my 6th visit to this lovely island. I will be thinking of new ideas while I am sitting my the pool and hopefully having a try at swimming. I have been going to swimming lessons over the last year and although I can swim on my back, swimming on my front has been a lot harder.

I hope you have enjoyed reading my blog today and thank you for visiting, I look forward to reading any comments you leave and seeing you again when you are hopping around blog land.

take care
Happy crafting
Hugs Margaret
