Special day

Hello dear bloggers hope your are all well today
I had a fab time last weekend in Shropshire at the joint party for my Auntie's 80th and my cousin's 50th birthdays, i met up with family that i hadn't seen for 32 years and my hubby & Son met some of my side of the family they didn't know existed , its quite scary to think where all those years have gone , it was lovely to reminisce on our childhood and teenage years and finding out what everyone has been up to in their lives ,  it was great to catch up with my cousin who is over here from L.A to celebrate her 50th birthday and i also got to spend some quality time with my parents and sister who live 152 miles away from me in Chester,  any way as i've now probably bored you all senseless  lets get onto my card for this week

*****************************************************

My card this week is a LOTV Anniversary card i just love this stamp and i think it has to be one of my favourite's as it can be used for so many occasions , sadly the colours of the paper look rather pale in this photo  ( probably my awful photography )

LOTV stamp coloured with Promarkers
Backing Papers ~  Papermania ~ Raspberry champagne
Nesties ~ Plain & scalloped edge circles
Distress inks ~ Tattered Rose  & spun sugar
Flowers from ~ wild orchid
Ribbon & Pearls from stash
Greeting from stash
