Happy Ever After!

My time doesn't half fly between challenges! Just haven't had time to blog, funerals, trying to sort out my mums house, wedding cards and a few relapse days in-between. The house is still on going, be at it awhile, mum kept everything! Least the card pile has slowed down a bit now, I seem to take forever getting just one made! 


Its the start of a new one over on
and this time round we would like to see
 your favourite decade/peroid in your life (&why).

Well, whats my favourite decade/period? Had to be along the lines of weddings as I have had four cards to make and just didn't have time to make a specific card but it was a very special time in my life. The 70's! I met my now hubby at the age of 15 years and married him when I was 19 years old and lived happily ever after, lol! Special memories, my mum made my dress and still have it packed away in a box. I was the apprentice, got all the tacking together to do which came in very handy when I started making my own clothes. And my card today reminds me of how I altered the remaining invites and made up my own wedding menus and thank you notes.
