Celebrations

A card I made for my parents' anniversary coming up in a couple of weeks. I embroidered their initials kinda similar to the ones engraved on my mum's wedding band.


It's Kitchen on Every Inchie Monday, and I've got this - as symbolic of kitchen as skull and crossbones are of pirates.
Furthermore, the wooden spoon is being used to make me a birthday cake, as tomorrow, Feb 3 I'm turning 50, I'm going to be a golden girl! I've been looking forward to this birthday all my life, and with each decade it got easier and freer to live. And I proudly never learned how to cook!
Happy birthday to me!!!     :D



And just to keep with the distinguished theme, here is my take on Masculine, which is this fortnight's theme on Moo Mania.
