Engaged!

We're off on our holidays today, so as you are reading this we will be somewhere on the M6 heading to Scotland.
We stay in a fab little complex of 4 completely disabled accessible bungalows, right on the coast at Luce Bay. The scenery is beautiful, just fabulous sea views wherever you look and very quiet and untouristy?!!!!(not sure that's a real word LOL!) Pure heaven!.
It is quite a long journey, so we always stop off at Gretna Green for lunch, then Cream o' Gallway Ice Cream farm for a delicious ice cream sundae, mid afternoon, before finally arriving and getting settled in for the evening.

 Today I have an engagement card for a friends son and girlfriend, they always put six red kisses in their cards and letters to each other, and when he surprised her with the proposal, he actually presented her with a Haribo Jelly ring, until they could go out and buy the real thing, so of course I decided to make that an integral part of their card.
At the same time I also made a less personal version of the same card as a sample for Mei.

The Jelly ring is in an acetate envelope.
