The Good Life :-)

Good Morning everyone and here we have the start of another week........where are the month's going !!!!

Below is an Album card using Karen Burniston's wonderful Sizzix Die.

One of my colleagues had given me some details for two of her friends who were celebrating their 50th Birthday. She advised they loved wine, holidays and their Cocker Spaniels and I was fortunate enough to add them all in this album. 









I am entering this make in the following challenges:

Our Creative Corner - Forgotten Things ( I found the wine bottle and Aged to Perfection stamp in my stash of wooden stamps, its by Serendipity Stamps and is dated 2005) Perfect for the Occasion !!

Have a fab week and I will catch up with you all soon x
