Anniversary Wishes

Good Morning to you ... It is still wet and cold here and very little sign of any change on the horizon ... the good news is that the workmen doing my little en suite should be finished tonight and the I can get do do some decorating ... but more importantly I get to have a little lie in rather than having to be up ready to greet them with tea and coffee every morning ha! ha!
The other upside of course it that I have been confined to my home and therefore have been able to craft a bit more and with so many birthdays coming up I am glad of my stack of cards ... today I have an anniversary card and gift to share ... one of my friends celebrates over 40yrs of marriage tomorrow ... I hope she isn't peeking ...



... the blue and cream papers are from a scrapbook kit ... wedding papers really ... but I love them and they are just as suitable for a Wedding anniversary ... I just printed the sentiment on my computer straight onto a scrap of paper from the kit ... and stamped some little birdies from THIS Eline's Huis clear stamp set


Everything else is from my stash ... glittered heart from MF ... the rose (Prima) is from a kit I bought HERE and I found the postage quite reasonable given that I live in the UK ... those pretty little crochet flowers I got on Ebay some time ago ... I'm sure I've shown them before ... 
The gift I have for my friend is a rather tall candle holder and I couldn't get a candle to match my colours so I decorated one instead ... 


and the candle holder



Looks pretty in there doesn't it? I think she will like it ... we have the same taste in lots of things which makes buying a gift quite easy ... just pick something I would like ha! ha! ... oh and this is the friend who bought me THIS beautiful cake stand ... so you get the picture ...

Have yourselves a wonderful day 

Till soon
