A perfect day!

Had a wonderful day with my best friends on Sunday
! Bacon butties, craft shopping, getting all our stash out of bags and making the kitchen table disappear under all the clutter. Extra table to accommodate the Big shot and Joy Trouvaille machine. Dies, card, guillotines, trimmers, stamps, glue, ink etc! Time for lunch and the first surprise visitor! Jackie, who wasn't sure she could make it due to family illness.
Then surprise number two when Dizzy Di turned up at 6pm, (just in time for dessert!
(She missed dinner by 5 mins).
 That just topped off a fabulous day.

I even managed to make two cards.
(I usually just do the running around and fetching and carrying etc,
which I love to do when they all come)!

I made this for for my best mate Pam's hubby.
The card is all printed from my Pink Petticoat files.
This ticking pattern and co-ordinating papers are from a lovely set called Beach Cottage.
With these digital files, you cannot go wrong with matching your colours!
I used a JustRite font stamp (retired) set for 'DAN' and 'RACH'.

This one was for Pam's S-i-L Rachael.
Pink Petticoat patterns used again for this one.
I CASED THIS card I found via Pinterest.

I seem to CASE the CAS ones. Hmm I see a pattern here! lol

See you later with more Peachiness! 
(if Alan doesn't mither the life out of me)!

Great cards Viv! I love the names and the banners!

Don't you just love banners. I ordered two styles from MFT. I love how you added the names to the front; it's very unique and something I haven't seen yet.

Viv. I love pinterest, you can find some awesome idea's on there. Love the layout and nice look on both of the cards. Want to let you know nothing attached this time. Thought I would wait and see and everything came just fine.
Hugs, Pat

Awwww... sounds like a perfect day! Wish I could have been at that kitchen table with all of you! Someday I will get there! If you can fly across the pond, so can I! I am putting it on my bucket list!
