We are out to dinner tonight at one of our favorite restaurants Cafe Lilli so I need to dig out a posh frock and high heels !! We are going in a taxi so not a lot of walking involved I live in flat shoes these days and  cannot now believe I went to work every day in heel shoes . Enjoy the weekend everyone. Love and hugs Carole x

  7. Wow stunning card gorgeous colour and love these images. What a great family photo. Enjoy your evening. I rarely wear heels these days, only little ones and it does feel strange wearing them. Like you I wore them every day years ago.

  8. This is just too gorgeous Carole!! Wonderfully coloured in the turquoise and lilac and teamed with some many beautiful embellishments. You make such special boxed cards.
    The photo of the family is really magical, they all look so happy and Miles is such a handsome little lad. Hope you had a fantastic night out and didn't trip in your heels :D. I do miss my heels, I once did a ten mile walk in 2½" heels with no problems! Debra x

  9. Where do I start with this beautiful card Carole? As usual you have created a stunning card, the colours are beautiful, the image perfectly coloured and your little details are just right. I love the photograph capturing your lovely family a perfect spring day for them. Hugh heels are a thing of the past for me...too much time spent in riding boots and wellies!! In the power dressing days of the 90s when I was in banking three inch heels were the norm!! Hooe you had a lovely night out xx

  10. Beautiful card, love the colour and gorgeous family photo. Emma
