Diamond Jubilee

Its taking forever to load anything onto my blog at the moment and after I finally got this on I realised I had forgotten to crop the background, not about to start again thought!  Just using up some Jubilee papers as they won't be much use after next weekend, everything I used on this card apart from the Union flag in the centre is from freebies from various magazines etc. I think I will be able to use some of them up in my London scrapbook if I ever get round to doing any more pages ! We had a fabulous Jubilee Tea Party in our village hall yesterday, all decked out with bunting, flowers , red/white and blue tablecloths and fabulous food ! Had a pianist playing all afternoon too, very nostalgic.  Hope we raised lots of cash as it was for our groups charity which this year is for Parkinsons Disease, a charity close to my heart as my Sister's husband had it and we saw at first hand what a terrible thing it is. Think this will fit a few challenges
