Anniversary Card!

Hello to You All,  Back after my weekend away in Glasgow and we had a lovely time, although Saturday was the foulest day with rain, but it didn't dampen our spirits.  We stayed in a lovely wee hotel and had a gorgeous meal in a restaurant called the Butchershop, whose steaks were to die for. Never have I tasted meat like this, all to do with how long the meat is hung I was told.  Expensive, but hey ho, it was our anniversary and Alistair's birthday celebration.
Yesterday, took us to the Transport Museum, this is new to me, and I thoroughly enjoyed it, and what a great place for families to visit.  We were going to visit the new Science Museum, but it was a wee bit of a walk and wouldn't have left much time to get back into the center of the city, so we will do that another time.

I'm afraid I've not managed any commenting, I've had so much to do today, and also making sure I've got things together for going to Birmingham on Thursday, the time is just going too fast, and I'm out tomnight at choral practise, but scooting through my Blogger Dashboard, I am able to see that everyone I follow had posted some gorgeous cards.  Hopefully, I will manage to get around to commenting tomorrow.

Thank you everyone for commenting on my last card, I do appreciate each and every one of your comments.
A very warm welcome to Vikki who is my new follower,  thank you so much for choosing to follow my blog, I hope you will continue to like what I do.

So here is today's card, as you can see it's for the lovely Alistair,
This is a stamp set from Acidrops and Whatnots, and thought that the caption so very apt for Alistair, who is always, always right!!  However, the stamp already said Abigail, and I couldn't change it to Kate.

Coloured with Prismacolour pencils in sepia shades
Tonic Gothic Die set
Gorjuss papers
Pearls and gems from my box

I am pleased to say Alistair loved it, even although I had to explain the Abigail bit.

That's all from me today, I hope you are all well, I am pleased to see that Pops is back creating and blogging, but sending good wishes to those who are not feeling too well just now, and hope it wont be long before you do feel better.
I Would like to enter my card into;  http://craftylittlefairieschallenge.blogspot.co.uk/2013/10/for-one-you-love.html

Great card I love that image.
Glad you enjoyed you break. I love Glasgow and have to visit the Transport Museun every time. Love sitting in the "underground" to hear the background recording. I also love to travel about on the "real" underground, it is a brilliant way to get around and so cheap.
Hugs
