Commissioned 'thinking of you' cards

Good morning Bloggers, I hope you are all well or getting there on this beautiful sunny morning :o)
I am on holiday from work this week so I will be doing what I like, when I like, how I like and if I like, and if I don't like then I won't do it LOL. Having said that, my first duty of the week is to take granddaughter Sian to the dentist to get a lost filling replaced while she is home from Uni, then we are off into Long Eaton for a browse.
Anyhow, on to my cards for today. The commission is for 7 cards but that would be too many to put on in one go, you would all be nodding off LOL.

I have matched the insides but forgot to take pics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Own photographs, the sailing one was taken at Carsington Reservoir and given a soft frame in PSP.  Own rose photograph tubed by my very good friend Pat and then the bouquet was created by me. The bow is from Pat too.

I started my week's holiday yesterday with some retail therapy at Byrkley Park. I forgot to put my new white plate for the GC in the pic. It's for embossing folders and works a treat with the tan mat. I spent enough to fill my loyalty card up so used it to get £10 worth of Coredinations 12x12 sheets :o)
