My Mum & Dad's cake boxes & thank you card for their Ruby Anniversary

I thought it would be nice if I did thank you cards & cake boxes for my mum & dad as I knew my mum wanted to send the cake out.
This is the first 20 boxes. Mum needs 20 more. Also the first card.
I wanted to keep the card nice & simple.
I have used red paper roses & ruby red 3mm ribbon.
Cake boxes are ivory I think.
In the excitement of posting this last night I forgot to say I am entering it into the 
Daring Cardmakers challenge - Rubies for July

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁
