Happy Everything

Good morning all. Finally made it to Edinburgh yesterday but it was blowing a gale! Made it to Hobbycraft and they have stopped doing doll's house stuff so I didn't get what I wanted.....came out with just a pack of card blanks and some giant chocolate buttons!

Spoke to my sister last night and the next wedding is going to be at Easter next year, I said they'd need to get their skates on thinking of designs if they'd like their wedding stationery done!

Off out for lunch in Alnwick today to celebrate Mum's 80th birthday. Looking forward to catching up with my brother and sisters as it's not often we're all together.

A card to share today.

Topper and papers from Wild Rose Studio. Dies from Spellbinders. Ribbon, button and sentiment from my stash. Love these ready coloured toppers for making a quick card.
