Grace Hope and Charity?

Afternoon peeps.  It is a bit warmer here today and at the moment the sun is out.  It is mean't to rain again tomorrow which is typical as we are off out tomorrow lunchtime for our belated meal for hubby's Birthday and our Pearl Wedding Anniversary.

My card today is another just because I want too.  The stamp plate I have used is another really old one  and I was proud of myself to have dug it out!!!   I know I first used this Stamp Plate in 2010 as I have a photo of a card I made with one of the images off of the plate. I was geared up to to find an old stamp by the lovely SQUIRREL who is running a Challenge until the end of the month.  Pop over and check it out.  This is my second card I have made for the Challenge.

Fae 3

Hi peeps.  Hope you are all well?  It was our Wedding Anniversary yesterday and we were suppose to be going out for a meal but Hubby wasn't well so I had to cancel it.  We didn't have a very romantic day as you can't be romantic with someone while they are coughing and splattering and blowing their nose at the same time as telling you they love you.  Lol!!!  He did actually sleep most of the day as he didn't get much sleep at night.  Neither did I come to that.

My Card today is just because I want to.
