Back On Deck!

Ladies, I have noticed a fair bit of time has elapsed since I last posted and I am sorry for that. Decided I would put a post up tonight as my Mondays seem to be filled up lately. We have had a busy month or two catching up with our various families, down to Dunedin to spend time with the family there, then we travelled down to the farm and had a lovely time with the ones there. Cam and Michelle have just built a fabulous retreat cottage on the farm and overlooking the Tahakopa Beach  which has  million dollar views. I will advertise it here,  as it is well worth a visit. Tahakopa Bay Retreat.  It is just stunning. A weekend ago we also had a trip to Christchurch to celebrate our lovely grand daughter's 21st. We have been reasonably social lately but have now settled back into retirement mode. In a couple of weeks though, we are off to Mt Cook, with our family, as our grandson is doing a marathon there - we're actually staying at Twizel.

Now, I do have a couple of cards to share tonight which were made for our friend's 50th wedding anniversary. One was from ourselves and the other was an order from another friend. So of course they had to be different!

Trust you enjoy the viewing ladies. The first is my usual 5 1/4" square card and the second an easel card. Both are made with reasonably older collections and to be honest, I have forgotten their names. Gold mirror card has been used to cut the dies out. Contact me if you require the manes etc of the dies. I'm a bit lazy tonight to go to my workroom to check them out.

Do hope you are all well and managing to dodge the colds etc that are making the rounds. Hugh is rather sorry for himself at the moment, as he has a rather nasty cold - tells me he's on the improve now which I am very thankful for. Coughing does keep the two of us awake at night! Thanks again for checking up on me and may you all know much blessing.
