I had a wonderful birthday lunch with my Hb. We went to Rules in London. It is the oldest restaurant in the city and has been open for over 200 years. It is such an amazing place and I will share a whole post with photos soon. Just for today I wanted to share a couple of photos from my special day.
Here are some of my cards and my Hb even made me one with a photo of my from when we first met in 1979! I'm eating an ice cream at London Zoo.
It's got lots of details including some faux stitching. The large stamps are Visible Image, the tag stamps are Lili of the Valley.
Here are some close ups, I used Spring themed distress inks and also distressed all my edges for a very vintage but spring feel.
