Freebie Friday

Hi Bloggers.

We had a lovely day for yesterday for my parents anniversary. Service in the hotel was slow to say the least though and they didn't even have us booked in for lunch even though I had confirmation! We did have a bit of a giggle about it though - it was like a posh Fawlty Towers! And, yes, I did know about the message from the Queen. It was all arranged and should be waiting for them when they get back home today.

Here's the final Freebie Friday Card of 2017 -

You can read how this card was made in this post.
