80 years young

We have just spent a few days in the Everglades which has been truly amazing. The weather has been hot and despite 'heavy' duty insect repellent both Joe and I have a few insect bites which are a very very itchy!!!! We spent a morning manatee watching on Tuesday on which we saw loads of wildlife blue heron, alligators, Ibis, mullet, oysters growing on the mangrove roots, tri coloured heron and many more - pics will be posted once I've down loaded them.

A few weeks ago I was asked to make a 80th birthday card using Autumnal colours and this is what I came up with using a retired hostess stamp set from Stampin' Up!®

Love this stamp set as it is sooooooo versitile


thank your for stopping by and reading my blog and continuing to leave such fantastic comments

You've been having fun Lesley! Looking forward to your photos - loved the bonfire night one. I bet your card went down really well - those flowers look gorgeous in those colours. Thank you for your kind wishes and have a lovely weekend. Vx
