Busy week.....Mum and Dad's Birthday

I feel a bit like this cat this week.....It's just going to be one of those weeks!
Spent a lovely early Birthday celebration today with my Mum and Dad - Hi folks!
My parents share a birthday - how strange is that.....have to add that on the 2nd of October
my Mum will be a mere 68 years young

Whereas my Dad has reached the big 70! Can't see it very well on his card - it's that pesky acetate again, so hard to get a decent photo.

We were celebrating early today as we will be heading South on their Birthday. Reuben's Grandparents will be celebrating 70 years of Marriage - how wonderful is that. They are 95 and 94 and haven't yet met our youngest two children, so it will be a special party and we decided we should make the trip to Henley on Thames - rather a long way with 3 children 6 ,4 and 2!


  1. Beautiful cards Claire, I love the images on both, gorgeous colouring too, I bet your Mum and Dad loved them :-)

    Love, Rose xx
