Last few cards I made
This one was for a lady, who is very stylish, 
the cards is all about her life's accomplishments
She flew planes, drove fast cars, love fur, fashion, and
owned a pig farm,
only a handmade card could tell her story.

This one, was for a lady, who loves to read poetry
Was a nurse, and carries her rosary beads with her all the time.

This one was for Fathers Day
Ladies Dad loves a Fry up, Tea and scones, playing cards and the garden

last few cards to share for 2 weeks,
as I am away.
Celebrating my 25th Wedding Anniversary.

Happy Anniversary
love you always
Yvonne xx
