Well I did say there would be another one!!  This one is for Chris's mum's 80th.  You can see I am well into making pinwheels at the moment!  Will try to quell the addiction for the next card!  So, used the same papers from Papermania (Portobello Road) which I still like, but not sure I can make another card with it at this point, so the next upload will be different - honest!!

Well, you can tell I was still in Jubilee mode when I made this one!!  This is my daughter's 30th birthday card.  I used the freebie papers from papermania I got in a magazine.  They are called Portobello Road, very topical!  Anyway, I liked the papers so much I bought some more, so watch out for other "creations"
Queen's Diamond Jubilee - 3rd June 2012

Wow! What a day we had!  Went up to London on the train with Pam, we had to sit on the floor in the bicycle carriage with about 15 other people, but spirits were high so nobody minded.  We got to Waterloo and walked down to the South Bank, there were so many people already there.  Some girls from Florida managed to get a spot right on the railings, but they had been there since 3am - and it was pouring with rain.  Fair play to them, they thoroughly deserved a good place.  We were wet, we were cold, but very happy to be there - the Flotilla of over 1000 boats with the Queen at it's head, was absolutely amazing.  I am so glad we made the effort to go.  A once in a lifetime thing to do....Fantastic!
