Just my cup of tea... or hot chocolate :-)

Hi!  I hope you are having better weekend than we are as my eldest got a sicky bug on Friday that left him wiped out most of yesterday as well, just as we thought it would be safe to go out today, the small one started yesterday... ewwww!!!!

Thankfully they aren't too ill too often, so it comes as a nasty surprise to them (and me!) when they are :-(

There does seem to be a nasty bug going around as both my MIL and FIL had it on Saturday night, so spent Sunday laid up in bed recovering... cue horrified look from my HB as it was their Ruby Wedding Anniversary yesterday and when he phoned to wish them a good day only to be told they had spent all of it in bed... it took a few seconds before he realised they were ill and not passing on more information than he wanted to hear... ROFL!!!

Which brings me in a kinda round-a-bout way to todays card, which I made for them.

I used some Bo Bunny papers that have been sitting in my stash for a while and used a Paper Shelter digi, some ribbon and a button.  The sentiment is by Woodware.

I printed a sentiment for the inside off on the computer as I didn't have anything suitable for a ruby wedding, I guess it's not something that is called for much!!

I quite like the combo of red and chocolate with these papers, I know its not that traditional a card for such an occasion but I think they'll approve :-)

I'd like to enter this card for these challenges

Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a great day :-)
