Your Special Day


Yesterday's craft fair was much better than Saturdays, thank goodness. At a recent craft fair I was asked if I had a card for a Civil Partnership, which I didn't. However I thought I would make a card which would suit either that occasion or a Wedding so I bought this Inkylicious sentiment stamp from Joanna Sheen. The papers are Prima Lyric. I cut the two corner pieces from a sheet and attached them to the backing paper.. I also used DI Worn Lipstick and added some die cuts, pearls and roses from Wild Orchid. The birdcage is MB, small butterfly Marianne and the larger butterfly Cheery Lynn.

I have a hospital appointment this morning regarding my balance problems, which seem to have been resolved through the exercies so I am hoping this will be the last Audiology visit. We are then meeting a friend for lunch and then I have an appointment at the hairdressers so another busy day.
