Hi everyone, sorry not been posting any cards lately, my PC has been out of action due to a trojan worm that entered my PC through what was supposedly Facebook! So beware!! Its been away to be fixed and its better than it was but still need to have some more work done when the PC doc returns from his hols!

What with the wedding and my sister and niece visiting for 3 weeks I haven't had much time to do any cardmaking. They returned to Oz this morning which was very sad and emotional as we don't know when we will see each other again. It was fantastic that they could be here and Emma was thrilled to get to be a bridesmaid. We had a brilliant time while they were here although the weather was not good, it rained almost every day, but we didn't let it spoil their visit.

Hope everyone is well and I shall return soon!

Katie's Wedding Day

My youngest daughter Katie was married on Saturday 9th August to Gareth. We had a fabulous day despite it pouring down with rain all day long! She looked stunning in her beautiful gown, she had 9 bridesmaids and their 5 year old son Samuel was pageboy, he looked very smart in his suit. They were married at St Michaels in Macclesfield and the reception was held at Quarry Bank Mill at Styal.
