Time Flies 50th Birthday

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers . I hope you have all had a good week doing some nice things. We had a lovely weekend away for our Anniversary stayed in a lovely Country House Hotel in a village called Biggin by Hartington in the Peak District. We called in to see Miles as well for cuddles so a good weekend all round. He's doing really well and is now 7lb 3ozs .
Well onto my card for today this is a 50th birthday commission I made a couple of weeks ago using the lovely Lili of the Valley stamp Time Flies after Pom Pom this is a favourite of mine. Its one of those stamps that always looks great when its finished. Well I think so !!
