Gas Street Moorings, Birmingham
One of the best bits of living in the centre of Birmingham are the firework displays (is that good grammar?).
New Year's Eves are a wonderful. This year we had a full moon and an almost clear sky. There were stars in the sky and then even more with this display which lasted five minutes. And, the even better bit. You are back in the warm comfort of your home almost before the last light fizzles to the ground.
We have not done much since then. A bit of shopping on Saturday and we had planned a trip to Stratford-on-Avon this morning but just as we were about to leave it started snowing and you know what the railways can be like if it snows... So we declined and as the train left Snowshill Station the sun came out and it was too late.
Still, we got to say goodbye to Sandy who is leaving for a job in Rugby. He will be sadly missed and we all hope he does well.
I love making fussy cards with lots of ribbon, bling and flowers. David usually hates them. But I also like (as does he) simple cards like this one.
I simply stamped the flowers onto white card and matted it onto gold and green card before fixing it to a white card blank.
