Firstly I'll show you all the cards I have made recently, then I'll get to the Celebration etc.
The 26th October was our Silver Wedding Anniversary and as we weren't having a party I made my own cake to share with the people who mattered. Of course I also made a card for my dear hubby.
The cake was a 10" Madeira Sponge sandwiched with Vanilla Buttercream & Strawberry Jam.
My Mother & Step Father came down to celebrate with us and we had a lovely meal at Parkers in Clonmel. The food and service were outstanding. My Mother had gone in the previous day and dropped in a couple of banners and a balloon, so when we arrived on the night, the banners were up on the wall behind us and the balloon on the table - it was a lovely surprises !!!
Not only did they get banners for the restaurant but also for our own living room, plus a balloon & flowers.
It was a lovely day and evening and that was all down the efforts of my Mother & Step Father and us of course.
Now to Disappointment......... Not one family member on either side bothered to send a card or pick up the phone to congratulate us. Now correct me if I am wrong but I think 25yrs of marriage is something to be celebrated, especially in this day & age where many don't last 5yrs let alone 25yrs.
Just as the school summer break finished the card requests came flooding in.
This card was a cousin of mine
And this one for my darling hubby
Another from me, this time for my Sister-in-law in NZ
This card was for my bestest friend ever. We have been friends for the best part of 40yrs now.
A cheeky card for my Brother-in-law LOL
And this card was also for a very dear friend of mine, we met on the first day at Secondary school way back in 1975.
The next few cards are all for the same lady who bakes & decorates the most amazing cakes and loves nothing more than running - personally I'd rather bake a cake LOL
This final batch are all for the same lovely couple celebrating their Ruby (40th) Wedding Anniversary
That's all the cards for now but I have a long list of cards that I need to make for Birthdays before Christmas and of course I have the most important card of all to make - an Anniversary card for my darling hubby. It's our Silver Wedding Anniversary on 26th October. I can't believe it is 25 years already. I am also making a celebration cake for the occasion, which I am also decorating myself, so watch this space.
