A Stampin Up Aviary Thanks

Stampin up Aviary birds and cages hanging from Creative Elements Flourish

Less is More this week is a one layer and they are looking for wings.  I also wanted to make a little thank you card for my Hubby who surprised me with an overnight stay at a 5 star hotel in Edinburgh at the weekend.  More on that in a mo.

I decided on Stampin' Up!'s Aviary because hubby likes cartoony or cutesy.  These guys seemed to do the trick.  I teamed up Aviary with Creative Elements.  The sentiment is from Petite Pairs with just the word Thanks inked up using a marker.  I used my Colour Coach to come up with Chocolate Chip, Wild Wasabi and Pretty in Pink for a colour combo.

So shall I tell you about our anniversary trip?  It was our 15 year Anniversary last Thursday.  Thanks to everyone who passed on congrats etc. so sweet of you!  We usually only exchange cards but this year I was surprised with a trip to Edinburgh at The Glasshouse Boutique Hotel for an overnight stay on Sunday night.

An amazing hotel and very posh.  You sit down to register!  Our room was even more amazing because we had a rooftop suite. Complete with a terrace overlooking Edinburgh with views to the Forth.  But wait there was more -  Champaigne, Chocolate strawberries, rose petal heart on the bed!  Our dinner was served in our room and was devine.  So was it off to the Theatre next door (I did clock on the way into the hotel that Phantom of the Opera was on) or off out to the trendy bars?  Nope next door, the opposite direction to the theatre, we went to the cinema!!  We're really not very posh at all!!

So it's back down to a bump and I've been told in no uncertain terms not to expect this level on any future trips.  Oh but it was good whilst it lasted.

Thanks for coming in past.  Take care x
