A Special 80th Birthday

Today is my Great Aunt's 80th Birthday.  Happy Birthday Auntie J.  We were supposed to travel to the deep South to celebrate with her but unfortunately my Mum is unable to travel due to her back problem so I couriered the card and am now sharing it today.

 I included a photo of the birthday girl as a flowergirl for my grandparents and made a little box (birdcage paper) for it as well. 
 Flowers are Prima, Petaloo and Wild Orchid and the trim from a Bazaar.  I had been saving it for a special occasion but have some more for another special project too.

I ended up making a 24 hour visit to Dunedin to my DD's High Tea/Baby Shower and a catch up with DD's x3 and DGS.  Can't wait for him to come for a holiday at Granny's in the holidays. Look at the amazing cake Zarlene from Arbitary Cakes made for the occasion. It was delicious with the top layer being cider, lime and strawberry - the middle red velvet and cream cheese and bottom chocolate.  An amazingly talented lady.  Check out the link.

It was fun transporting it home in the car - had to drive like an ambulance with a fragile patient lol.

Hope you have had a good weekend.  Thank you for visiting today and wishing you a great week.

Until next time....
