Jingle Belles card 32 ... and a busy Saturday ..


Hello ... lots to share today ...
Thank you for your well wishes ... I am feeling much better tummy wise ... really enjoyed the girls get together on Friday ... something we do occasionally and have done for more than 20yrs ... though I can hardly believe it's been that long! And the Anniversary party went well ... it was lovely to see the happy couple and catch up with my friends from the old neighbourhood ... my friends who were celebrating 40 years of wedded bliss have been together since school days ... a true love story ... which made last night all the more special and I got very teary when they took to the floor and danced to a beautiful song ...
I hope they have many more happy years ahead ... they so deserve it.
Here we are together



I also had a visit from my brother and SIL yesterday and their two grandchildren ... Ross and Sophia ... how I adore those cuties ... it was such fun seeing them ... 

... and somehow I managed to fit in my card
for this weeks' challenge at Jingle Belles ... which is titled "Shape Up For The Holidays" ... make a card that is any other shape than the usual rectangle or square ones ... 


Yep, just a mitten card ... nothing that fancy I'm afraid ... I printed the shape from my computer onto my cardstock and hand cut it (don't own a cricut) and then covered it with MME paper and a few embellishments 


And now I'm going to leave you with the beautiful song they played for my friend's last night ... enjoy!

Who needs a cricut when you have such a steady hand ;-) Gorgeous mitten, wonderfully embellished, too. BTW, the picture of you and your friends is lovely, you all look very smashing!

It is always nice to hear a true love story, thanks for sharing the photo too!
Glad you are feeling better and managed to have fun with friends.
And such a cute card, I made my 2 days ago but then realized that "tag" maybe not the right one for this week challenge at jingle belles! : (

Awww - they are a very cute couple. Here's to their years of happiness ... may they have many more!

I think your mitten is fabulous - the lace and ric-rac are the perfect embellishments.

Thanks for sharing!

Rosemary said...

Looks like you had a marvelous time with your friends and how did you find time to create?

You somehow did and the results are lovely. The mitten is really good, you don't need a Cricut for that, your results are great. I like the paper you used and the rickrack embellishment!

No need for a cricut here. Just perfect. Love it.
