Happy 10th Wedding Anniversary to us!

Yes as you can tell from my post title it is mine and hubbys 10th wedding anniversary today.  It doesn't seem real, the time has flown by, but then sometimes it feels like we've been together for 30years lol!!!
I wouldn't change a thing (well just 1 and he and our friends know what that is!) but other than that I would be lost without him, he is my life, my love, my bestest friend in the whole world, we just wish we had met 10 years earlier!!
We got married at Gretna Green in Scotland with our close family with us and it was a really lovely day.  My dad thought we were absolutely mad planning to get married in Scotland in February, but we had sunshine of our special day, just a few spots of rain when we were coming to the end of having our photo's taken in the hotel garden!
We got married on the 20-02-2002 at 2.02pm (shoud've been 2pm but the vicar waited to make it more special, the old blacksmiths shop wouldn't have been open at 20.02pm!) a very special day date wise (that's why I chose it) but little did I know how special!

As the clock ticks over from 8:01PM on Wednesday, February 20th, 2002,

time will (for sixty seconds only) read in perfect symmetry.
To be more precise: 20:02, 20/02, 2002.
It is an event which has only happened once before, and is something
which will never be repeated. The last occasion that time read in such
a symmetrical pattern was long before the days of the digital watch (or
the 24-hour clock): 10:01AM, on January 10, 1001.
And because the clock only goes up to 23:59, it is something that will
never happen again.

It got me an appearance on Richard and Judy on the eve of our wedding via phone link, and the following day we appeared as one of the weddings on the Scottish news!!  such a shame we don't have a record of this though, just a memory!
We intended to go back and renew our vows on our 5th anniversary but that passed, and then we always said we would do it on our 10th anniversary!  But we are both working, it's a week day and we just didn't organize it, which in a way we are pleased about because of the snow just lately!  We WILL do it 'one' day, probably not this year as we have an expensive holiday in the pipeline for my 'big' birthday celebration.........

Charisma Cardz - Happy Anniversary

Good morning, it's time for a new challenge over at Charisma Cardz and this week it's my turn to choose the theme.  So with my 10th wedding anniversary coming up on the 20th of this month I thought 'Happy Anniversary' was quite apt!!
My card is and 8x8 and very simple!  I've used a decoupage topper which came free with the current DoCrafts Creativity magazine, 1 sheet of dp from one of my pads (sorry not near my desk to find out which one), the heart in the top left was cut from another sheet, the bow I had got already tied and it just appeared on my desk!!!!  and although I don't really like peel-offs I added the greeting along the side of the card as it seemed a bit bare! 
We as always have fab sponsors who have donated great prizes for our winners, so please take part. 
Look forward to seeing your cards.

Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day everybody!
I thought I would share a few of my makes for this special day!
Firstly here is one of my Picnik creations, oh how I love this website, I am utterly devestated that it is closing down soon  :0(
and a couple of quickie cards I made for my 2 girls, they literally took about 5 minutes to make!  Thanks to Lila for the idea, you can find Lila's blog here.
here are some of the yummies that I have made for hubby's lunch, vanilla cupcakes with a jam filling a choccie heart on top, with either glitter, white choc chips or sugar hearts to top or a mixture!  shortbread heart biscuits, the small ones are covered in white choccie (hubby's fave!) 
all packaged up!  they filled a lunch box and left no room for sandwiches, crisps, apple etc so he has got to take 2 lol!!! 
finally a super quick card using puffy stickers that I got from Poundland about a year ago!! 

My poor laptop is going in for a service and bit of a tune up, hopefully back in 24hours, what on earth am I going to do with myself???

Charisma Cardz - Vintage

Good morning, wow Thursday again, the weeks are whizzing by!  I can't believe we're into February already, it'll soon be Easter lol!!
It's new challenge time at Charisma Cardz and this weeks theme is Vintage.
Vintage fills me with dread!  I don't know where to start, and when you're mojo has been missing for over a year now it makes it all the harder to create!  I really dislike my card, I kind of went with colours more so than style, but still don't like it, just didn't want to let the girls down!!
We have great sponsors offering fab prizes for our winners so please pop on over to the blog and take a peak.  Whilst there take a look at the examples the rest of the girls have done which are absolutely gorgeous!
