A Ruby Wedding

I've been waiting to post this card because I wanted to make sure that the recipients had received it.  Unfortunately they haven't!  I sometimes wonder about our postal system. 
UPDATE:  Card arrived ... a week after posting 1st class!

Anyway, dear friends of mine, Greta and Roger, celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on Sunday.  I didn't find out about it until the early part of last week and I didn't have much time to make a card.  Firstly I had no working room as my crafty space was doing a good job of hiding itself under all the 'junk' I'd piled in it and secondly, we had our night away and I had Dad to deal with amongst the normal 'stuff' I don't normally have to do but have at the moment - until OH is able-ish again.  I managed to get crafty space cleared and, after getting home and having a 'rest' from out night away I set to work .... trying to find mojo!  I had a sketch to follow for a challenge on the forum but I had no idea what to do.  I cobbled something together which I hated so it all came apart and I started again.  Hubby is thinking I'm mad 'cos he liked what I'd done but I didn't.  Still actually didn't like what I ended up with - mojo well and truly left me, or I never really had any in the first place and I can only make cards when I go to a workshop and told what to do :0(  Fact was, I'd run out of time as it had to go in post to get there on time .... or not, as it turned out 'cos they're still waiting!
