WELCOME!


Welcome to Squirrel's slightly nutty world of rubber stamping, papercraft, cats, Formula 1 and a variety of other off-the-wall topics. It's fabulous to see you and I hope you enjoy your time here. Please do pop back and visit me again soon!

Golden Wedding


Today is my parent's Golden Wedding Anniversary - 50 years to the day. Congratulations Mum & Dad!! I attempted several anniversary cards but in the end went with the first one I did back in January.

I popped over to see them this morning with the card and they were both thrilled to bits with it. There is a small(ish) family party for them tonight - about 45 guests - and I am so looking forward to them being the centre of attention. They are wonderful parents and they deserve a fantastic night. They did not want any gifts and asked for donations instead to the local hospice but I could not let the occasion go by without something so I have obtained a Golden Wedding edition of their Marriage Certificate. It's on vellum, hand finished with the Registry Office seal and in a frame. It came gift boxed too. Not quite sure yet how I am going to sneak it into the party without them seeing as it certainly won't fit in my handbag!!

Hope the party went well. What a lovely idea about the marriage certificate. Might try doing that for my in-laws this year as they too are celebrating their GW.
