Wedding Card

Hello there and welcome to my blog x

The weather here over the last few days has been pretty dim ..... guess our summer is over!! what we had of it.

Saturday we had a BBQ for our Grand-daughter Poppy. Family & close friends who have not met her yet had the opportunity to do so. It was a brilliant day, lots of food, drink, laughs and dancing.

My Son, Father in law and Husband did the ice bucket challenge and raised £135.00 for Cancer. We were all chuffed with that. I know this has gone viral and once you have seen one you have seen it all, BUT, before I share the wedding card I have made I am going to share the videos.

My father-in-law George.

My Husband Lee.
I apoligise now for the swear word at the end

I am going to share a wedding card with you. It was a commisioned one and I made it quite a while ago but have not shared it yet.
