Anniversary and a 100th Birthday card

Hi everyone, more cards from me again. I have an Anniversary
  card I made for my  BIL and SIL recently and forgot to post.
 
 
I made a necklace and matching earrings which went down 
very well with my SIL I am happy to report.
 
 
 She was even wearing this very shade of denim blue when
  she opened it . As they were visiting us on holiday at the time,
she got to wear it that very day too.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hand made flower
 
 
 
 
Sorry not a great photo!
 
 
 
 
 
Also a 100th Birthday one I made for my lovely daughter-in-law's
Granddad to take back to Taiwan with her for him. 
 
 
 
 
Wow 100 years old ! and until recently he was walking up mountains
all the time with family. He is also a vegetarian like us, that
gives me hope ;)
 
 
 
It took me  well over 2 hrs to try and get the right Mandarin wording /image etc.
right for his card. In the end I had to hand write the sentiment.
 
 
 
 
It says Happy Birthday Granddad in Mandarin.
 
 
 
 
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week, the weather is more
 Spring like for us at last now & warmer too.

  13. Wowsers, a hundred years old and still walking up mountains!! Actually, that's probably why he's lived so long. The card you made for him is beautiful Viv, I absolutely love the watercolour image and I think you did a fabulous job writing the sentiment in Mandarin. The anniversary card and jewellery you made are wonderful too.
    Cheers,
    Beccy
