At long last huh?

LOL sorry I haven't posted in a while, we went away on 14th June and only returned late on Monday 23rd. We had a lovely break but will update you on that later.

First I'd love to say a HUGE thanks {{{kiss}}} to our lovely friends who sent us handmade cards for our 11th wedding anniverary on the 14th.

We travelled down to East Sussex that day and had what ended up as an enormous afternoon tea at Sillets Cottage, Selmeston (will add a photo or two in the next post). Sarn, a lovely crafty friend joined us and she presented us with a gorgeous card and gift:
Isn't it super? I've never received an explosion box before and it's wonderful how Sarn did the images on the candle, this is one candle I won't be able to use, it's too precious. Sarn knows I love Penny Black stamps :o)
Here are photos of the other cards we received. The gorgeous frog card is from our lovely friend Louise; our dear friend Linda in Somerset sent us the cute elephant card and the cute birdy card came from our friend Linda in Scotand - thanks so much {{{kiss}}}. I can also now show you the card I made for David:
I used Doodlebug embossed white card, gold stardream card, Imaginesce patterned paper and Craft Creations decoupage with some lovely stickles glitter glue. I was quite pleased with how it came out :)
Enough for now. Our first day back at work and I didn't stop all day, was so glad to get home.
Will write more tomorrow on our travels.
Take care and thanks for looking :o)
