Less is More  3-2-1

Before we go to my card (which is at the end of the post in case you would like to skip right to it), would like to share our 'do' with you 
Last week saw us celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary- scary how quickly 25years can pass!!- with a gathering at a local hotel.It wasn't a big affair just close friends and family ( some we hadn't seen for ages and one that you might know......)  I had an absolute ball!- even though I had a senior moment and left the most important stuff at home,we had booked a room and I never ever travel without my heated rollers,this time took the rollers just nothing to heat them with ,disaster AND  I left my new sucky in pants at home too even bigger disaster, but never mind a few dances a few hot flushes later (don't you just hate that certain age!) and nobody would have noticed anyway! but just thought that I'd like to share some of the photos with you ,bad hair day and all ....

My boys! (Russell and Fraser)

                                 Can't believe 25years have passed since we did this! Well o.k I can when I see the saggy bits and the the wrinkles (thank God I now need glasses or it would look even worse)...                                                                     
                                   ....Wonder if we'll make it to our golden - Dick would be a sprightly 80 and Me - well that would be telling ;-)......

This is our anniversary baby born on our 9th anniversary weighting 9lbs 9oz.he turned 16 on our anniversary. Russell loves this picture - yeah and that is sweat on his brow - he never took the jacket off he thought it made him look so grown up!! must admit he did look good in it :-) (proud momma moment)

And this is Suze Bain from  CantStopCrafting blog, I'm sure many of you will recognise that name! Suze was the one who introduced me to card making and the wonderful world of blogging.- and yes I'm standing funny ,it was the end of the night and my feet were killing me....unlike my younger friend who I'm sure could have danced all night!!!!
Sorry for the long post but if you read on you'll find my entry for this weeks Less is More challenge too!

3 - 2 - 1

Think I might be reaching here but here it goes ....

     3 words , 2circles and 1 car

  How hard can this challenge be ? had loads of ideas but all looked and felt flat when I finished them ,so hopefully I can follow Chrissie' lead and use an abbreviation on the word 'you've' for my 3 words

Last week was such a busy week never got around to commenting or even joining in the challenge so apologies and I promise I will pop over to visit to-day x 


  1. Don't we scrub up well - all I can say is thank goodness for Spanx! It was a grand do! Onto your card, I guess it's 3 words, 2 circles and 1 car?? It looks fab in B&W with the pop of red. xx

  2. I'm so pleased you had a great time at your celebration!The pics look wonderful... as does your card. I had trouble implementing my ideas too!

    (Lost a little in translation when I got to the bit about you having left a sucky in your pants. Oh my. I'm not sure I even want to know what that means! LOL!)
