Gas Street Moorings, Birmingham

Anyone know who lives here?

Here is a clue.

Yes, it is BW Headquarters. They are going to have to move now though, we have found out where they live.

We went to London for the day and stopped off in Watford as David wanted to visit the BW offices for an article he is going to write.

It must be the only place with a Customer Relations Department where the customers cannot access it without much difficulty. Almost as good as our Customer Relations office in Birmingham which is only open between 1200 - 1400 hours during the week!

Sorry about the awful photographs of this card. I finished it very late at night as we were catching an early train the following morning and had to photograph it without a flash (the flash just bounced the light back).

David's younger sister Lil, and Joe her husband were renewing their wedding vows on their 40th wedding anniversary.

The colour of the card was actually a rich ruby red (matching the rose). I cut a diagonal piece of the top of the front of the card and then emphasised the diagonal by adding a strip of silver peel-off, then some black ribbon with black ribbon flowers and black beads in the centres. Finally and strip of white organdie ribbon with little hearts embroidered on it. I tied a heart pendant onto a bow made with the white organdie ribbon and stuck it down with a glue dot.

The bottom decoration was cut out with a Martha Stewart punch using the black music paper and to finish it off a "40" topper.

I covered most of the back of the inside of the card with black and silver music paper. A rich ruby red rose, covered in glitter is stuck down on the top right hand corner with another glue dot and the sentiment is a peel-off stuck onto more ruby card and matted onto silver mirror card with 4 ruby gems in each corner..
