Anniversary Card & a few holiday pics

Afternoon peeps, I am so glad to be back amongst my Blogland buddies.  Hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  I have quite a few cards to make this weekend and I am having an inspiration block!  Have managed to make one card so far.  This is for my boss at work, Kirsty, who will be celebrating her 1st wedding anniversary next week, her & her husband are such a lovely couple together.

I have used the sketch from Card Patterns, and used the themes from Secret Crafter - "Quotes" and also Spoon Full of Sugar - "Floral Delights".  Mainly used white card.  Quote is from DCVW.  Distressed all edges with a red chalk ink.  Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.  Peel offs from stash (still no printer for P.C.)

I threatened you all earlier in  a previous post that I would show you are couple of photos of my holidays, I will show a few in each posts so I do not to bore you all - plus you can only cope with seeing my ugly mug in small  These first couple are us joining the cruise ship, Ventura, in Southampton,  the weather was glorious and how better to celebrate the start of a holiday - with a pint of lager!!!

And it is a picture of the ship, she was beautiful and I kept getting lost every time I used the As you can see she is huge - too big for the camera.

Heading back to my table to try and make another with a "Pimms Misty" cocktail! (Pimms, ginger beer & pineapple juice)

...In Southampton and you didn't come and see me! Not that I live there, but not that far away, as the seagull flies!!
Yes, it is a very posh ship and very big, next to the 'little' IOW ferries!
