Special Birthday

Good evening to all my lovely friends and  followers. A special welcome to my new follower on Google + Vinita. Thank you for following my Blog I hope you continue to enjoy my posts. My card today is one I made way back in August for a commission. I made it in a bit of a rush just before my holiday and forgot to photo it. When I met up with the friend I'd made it for I mentioned I'd not photographed it she agreed to take a photo for me she's done a brilliant job. The card is a design I have made before and was asked for specifically but this time I used patterned papers for a different look.

I hope the person it is for liked it my friend certainly does.. Well November already I cannot believe its 3 month since I made this card the time is passing so fast. Today I finished the roman blind for my Son and  Daughter in law just need to put the rods in and slot in the cord then fix it to the rail and hey presto finished in a flash. !!! We are seeing them next weekend so it has to be done for then.
I've got my two cousins for lunch tomorrow so really looking forward to that as one of my cousins now lives in Inverness near his son. My other cousins wife is bringing the outfit to show me she has bought for her sons wedding in December its the wedding I have done the stationery for so really looking forward to seeing it. I am sure it will be gorgeous. 
Well I cannot finish my post without telling you about Friday. As it was a nice day we decided to go to Whitby for fish and chips at the Magpie and of course a visit to the craft shop. When we got there we found out it was Goth Weekend. We looked very boring in our normal clothes but we had great fun seeing all the amazing outfits.
Well that's it for now hope you all enjoy the rest of the weekend . Thank you for the lovely comments on my Halloween card they were so special as it isn't the sort of thing I normally go for. Hugs Carole x

  6. This really is lovely Carol. The delicate papers are gorgeous. Those asters are one of my favourite flower dies. By the way, the crashed car at the end of our lane wasn't stolen. We did think that until we got in touch with teh police. It was a very young chap who had been slammed into by a foreigner, just arrived in the UK and driving a very narrow twisting country lane, in the dark - on the wrong side of the road. Imagine seeing headlights coming at you out of the dark and nowhere to escape to! Enjoy the rest of the weekend. Christine x
