Good morning blogging chums. Hope you have woken to sunshine and warmth.
Before I go any further, I just wanted to send huge condolences to Mrs A, who has sadly lost her Mum. A sad time and you are in my thoughts.
I think that the Turkish Delights are due back now, bronzed, chilled and ready to run the gauntlet again. Hope you had a wonderful time ladies and that you haven't broken too many Turkish hearts.
Also, thanks to Gail and Jackie for the heads up on Once Upon a Stamp. They seem really cheap so I was a bit wary but you have both put my mind at rest, thank you.
Well Jackie, I have to admit to swearing when Filipe clipped Checo as I thought it was going to end badly. Thank heavens for the modern Monococques (sorry to all non F1 fans)
Thanks again for your lovely comments on my garden. It does need a bit of TLC at the moment as its not getting my full attention with being at work now. Certainly won't be getting any this week either as I'm doing extra hours to help cover some leave.
The Diamond Anniversary party was fantastic. The two of them don't look old enough to have been married 60 years. They were proudly showing their card from Her Maj but I think they liked mine better hahaha!!!
Now, back to today's card. I entitled this "It was going to be yellow" as I had got a yellow card to show but our John had a gorgeous yellow one on display yesterday so, I'm keeping it for another day. I did actually make mine a while ago and did discuss the die cuts with John at the time but when I went to blog it, I realised one of the pearls had dropped off and I hadn't noticed. I then forgot to re-photograph it until last week.
The Ruby Anniversary celebrants are friends of Nesta's. The hubby was very poorly recently. After suffering, what he thought was a bad tummy, for a few days, he went to the docs and got rushed into hospital. . . . . he'd got a burst appendix !!! He was in a bad way for a while so I think that they are embracing this special anniversary a bit more than they may have.

I was really pleased with the way it turned out. I'm similar to John (not in imagination, sadly) in that I do a rough sketch of what's in my minds eye and its a real "phew" moment when it turns out how you hope.
Nesta seemed genuinely happy with it as she was smiling (may have been wind though, lol!!!)
Have a great day folks and sending kind thoughts to those whose day is not quite so good.
Ps. . . . .Blossom, stay cool !!!
