I wouldn't mind announcing that I had reached my half century with such a beautiful card as this Carol ..... sadly that occasion is long gone but I sure would have appreciated starting a new decade with the Pop of that intricately coloured bottle of champagne. Oh I love all your wonderful lacey punches and die cuts and your very classy colours ....well, we are talking Champagne here.

A belated happy birthday to your husband .... and how lovely to see a photo of birthday girl, Holly-Ann. Poor little mite still enduring the after effects of Scarlet Fever. I hope she and her sister soon regain their bounce and mischief. Love Ingrid xxx ♥ ♥ ♥

Ps: last year my Mum insisted that I was entitled to collect my bus pass and pension .....I had to explain to her that the government didn't agree with her :-) :-) xxx ♥ ♥ ♥
