Language of Love

So sorry I didn't get to post on here yesterday - it was just too frantic.
I got up at silly o'clock and finished off the floral table decorations, had breakfast (toast!)
then cello wrapped and decorated the three single roses for the Ladies song.
Went to hairdressers.  Barry and I then went to the Lodge to set up the tables
as we wanted them.  Saw the Chef who kindly offered to fetch pink napkins from
the Cash and Carry for me (to match the pink rose at the top of the table decs!)
That done, I was given a guided tour of the kitchen and basement rooms at the lodge - it was really interesting, it is like a rabbit warren, with loads of little rooms leading off one another.
Barry and I then decided to go and have a bite of lunch - I needed to get refreshments for this morning's Monthly Workshop, so we killed two birds with one stone (metaphorically speaking!)
and went to Morrisons.
Went home, had ten minutes doing nothing, then went to school to pick kids up.
Had to sit and wait for Lucas returning from his Rugby match, then drove home and the kids asked if they could have a chip shop meal for their tea - who am I to refuse - saved me a lot of work!
Took Lexie to Dancing Class, took her back to ours and Kerry arrived at the same time, so
she whisked the kids off home, leaving me a little bit of time to make myself beautiful!!
Once changed into glad rags and slap applied, off to Ladies night.
Had a fabulous evening, super meal, the ladies who won the flower arrangements loved them!
Got a lot of compliments on them too.  Were entertained by the Eden Duo who were fabulous, then a quick tidy up and off home - by which time I was absolutely cream crackered, 
so promptly went off to bed. So you can see why I didn't have time to blog.

  I have held my Monthly workshop this morning, so I have found out a card that
I made at Christine's a few weeks ago, hope you like it.

Colour combo is Baked Brown Sugar, Crisp Cantaloupe and very Vanilla.
Stamp set used is Language of Love.
Chevron punch used on CC cardstock, then the punched pieces arranged
and stuck onto Baked Brown Sugar DSP.
Tiny Heart punched out of CC cardstock and stuck on with dimensional.
