Golden Wedding Box

Good morning all. Friday again...how did that happen!

Yesterday was spent doing little jobs that I've been putting off! 
Papers sorted and bills paid - tick
Cooker top completely gutted - tick
Dishwasher put through a cleaning cycle - tick
Old magazines sorted...a work in progress! I did encounter a few familiar faces :) 
Also dealt with a shopping delivery, did two loads of washing, made a pan of soup and Moroccan chicken for tea. Today I need to finish my commissioned card.

I got some happy post yesterday finally...one from the US which was posted at the end of December...the little blighter had taken itself off to the Bahamas for an extended holiday en route to the UK...at least Customs didn't stop it once it finally reached UK shores.

Since it's Friday I'm joining Erika at Snappy Crafts to share a golden oldie today.

An exploding box to share today from 2008 made as a commission from a husband to his wife for their Golden Wedding Anniversary.

I actually made all the cards from the family for them, I think I did about ten cards in total!

I did a very small dummy card which Bill gave his wife in the morning and this was presented to her during a family meal later in the day with a set of earrings inside.

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned.
