25 years!

Hello friends!
Well here I am at last. I can't believe it is once again the end of a month and it has been so long since I blogged!
I do have an excuse for my bad blogging though having just returned from the trip of a lifetime to celebrate hubby's and mine 25th Wedding Anniversary! here is the card that I made for him....sorry about the bad photo, I used pearlescent card and it does not photograph well. (I know bad workmen always blame their tools).

and here is where we celebrated it.....

Niagara falls and .......

Toronto........and YES we did go up the CN Tower...all the way, glass floor included!

I have always wanted to see Niagara Falls. In fact it has really only been the one thing on my bucket list! that is complete now and we flew over the falls in a pre-booked helicopter flight on the actual Anniversary day...followed by a meal in the hotel restaurant overlooking the falls.....stunning! some wonderful memories were made. Perhaps I need to start scrapbooking now!

So now it's back down to earth...(pinch myself, was I really there ?).... hubby is back to work today and I am hoping after a catch up of post holiday chores that my mojo will kick in and I will become productive.

Oh yes....I also made it to a 'Michaels' store in Toronto........disappointed, it's a glorified Hobbycraft and not at all what I expected so didn't buy much at all....I know a first for me!

 I do hope you are all OK out there in blogland.  I have had a quick whizz round since my return to see what you have all created...wonderful makes as usual!
Take care my friends and thanks for popping in, hopefully I will not be as long in blogging next time.
Enjoy your week.

  1. Wow, what a fabulous dream holiday and some wonderful new memories for you both and a Belated Congratulations on your 25th anniversary. Love the card you made for your Hubby (that die is still on my wishlist!). Have a good week xx

  2. First of all Congratulations to you both on your 25th Wedding Anniversary. How lovely that you had your dream holiday. Now it's back to washing and ironing but you'll have those wonderful memories forever.

    Your card is lovely Carole. Just perfect for the occasion and I love the heart die you used. Hugs, Barbxx

  3. Belated congratulations Carole - what a fabulous way to celebrate! And your card is stunning - a great way to use that fabulous die. When we went to New Mexico I'm sure that Hobby Lobby was the place I liked most of the large craft stores - we certainly spent hours in there! :)

  5. Belated Congratulations on your silver wedding anniversary. I love your card, fabulous design.

    What an amazing trip you had to celebrate! Niagara Falls was on my bucket list too and we managed to get there a few years ago. Such an impressive place to visit. xx

  6. What a fabulous post Carole! Lucky, lucky you!

    Huge belated congratulations from the House of Hearts!

    It sounds like you have made some very special and unforgettable memories .. .. and for me that is what life is all about.

    I love the card you made for your hubby too.

    I was interested to read your comments regarding Michaels .. .. like you I thought it would be a huge out of this world craft store full to the brim with bargains and crafty goodies .. .. half of which we never see here in England.

    So back to reality for you now :-( and here's to the next 25!

    Love Jules xx

  11. MANY MANY CONGRATULATIONS on your 25th WA. Looks like a fantastic trip where lots of wonderful memories were made. Your WA card looks great.

    Hugs, Sarn xxx

  12. Oh my, a wonderful trip. I could never, ever, ever, ever go up that tower!!
    Belated congrats and here's to the next 25! I was disappointed at Michaels too, not impressed, and I had been looking forward to shopping in one. Oh well, now we know we're not missing much. Liz x

  13. Lovely card and congratulations on your silver anniversary, it's ours next year but I think the dream holiday will have to wait a couple of years! Canada is definitely on my bucket list too, loved seeing your pics and you should definitely do some scrapbooking.
    I went to Michaels in Orlando, what a let down, I don't think I bought anything either. Hobby lobby and Joanne's are the best ones I think.
