I have been blogging since 2010. I have been married for 29 years and have three children,I have been blessed with Four Gorgeous Grandchildren. I love making my own cards, but dabble in cake making & crochet too. I enjoy going to Alexander Palace twice a year with my mum. I live in Battersea and have grown up here, although me and hubby's dream is to one day live in Spain.....

Tie the Knot

I have had this card made for ages now..... I shall be entering it into the Polkadoodle's Challenge 15, which is 'Tie the Knot'. This challenge closes Sun 24th April 12 noon GMT.
Me & hubby met up with two fellows in our local pub. Each week we chatted more & more & have now become very good friends with them.
On Saturday 26th March, they tied the knot in Glasgow. They only had 14 relatives attend the ceremony, they did not want it tooo big.
I pumped them on their suit colours etc etc.

Me & hubby wanted to buy them a gift too, but Ricky & George said NO GIFTS.... soooo we had a cake made for them. Weeell... it was edible & took up no space... less & less as it got eaten Lol

An old work colleague makes cakes as her hobby.

I gave her templates of the suit, stamped out the cushion several times & provided her with the ribbon.
I wanted the cake a replica of my card.
