Celebrate in Style

Hi Folks
Finally caught up with all the washing etc after being away for the weekend.  Check out a few photos at the bottom of this post.

Just wanted to share this 40th birthday card that my Sister asked me to make.

I used a stamp and papers from Wild Rose Studio for this card.  The little cocktail glasses at the side are also part of the stamp set.  Wanted to keep it quite simple and classy.  I will let you decide if I have achieved that lol.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Little Claires - Male theme
Joanna Sheen - Fathers Day/Male
Inky Impressions - Anything goes
Crafty Catz - Anything goes
Pan Pastel - Lots of layers
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything goes
TTCRD - Anything goes
Sketch N Stash - old (papers and stamp)

The hen weekend that I have just been on was great fun.  I haven't laughed so much for a long time.  We stayed in this gorgeous Beach House at Mundesley in Norfolk.  Here are a few pictures.

The beach house was so gorgeous and tastefully decorated.  It sleeps up to 14 people and there is so much room.  It also has a sauna and a hot tub.  We did afternoon tea when we arrived on the Friday and on the Saturday night a company called Chef 2 Dine 4 came in and cooked and served our evening meal.  A great weekend was had by all.  We even had a visit on Saturday afternoon by a group of drunken cricketeers.  They were passing by in their coach and saw our mate Roger in the window and decided to pop in.  Very unexpected but all added to the fun.

Thanks for popping by.
