A beautiful Invitation Card, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray. One day we'll have to have a meet-up on your side of the world. smile

Ginnie Hart: We certainly understand, Derek, but if you change your mind, we'd love to see you.

alas, if there were round trip tickets involved, then i'd gladly go.. ;D kidding aside, hope you guys have fun.. smile
Ginnie Hart: HA! Too bad we can't send out tickets to any and all, Rian. We need to win the lottery! But thanks. I'm sure we'll all post about it when the time comes.

Love the invite, Ginnie.
I am sad, as I cannot attend.
But should a miracle happen, I will let you know.

And I'm so glad to be in your and Astrid's circle of friends smile
Ginnie Hart: Miracles do happen, Kay, as we all know. Maybe one day we'll make it to YOU! smile

Ginnie Hart: Ohhhh. I love it. Sadly, however, we WILL let Chad get near to us. It's part of the deal, of course. grin Too funny.

I was there when you took the picture.... cold and on our way to our favourite walk around the citadel.
Great DOF and great tittle.
Meeting again with Tracy, our third Musketeer and the Three Stooges will add to great memories, memories we collect.
Meeting a lot of other SC-ers will be so special too.
I feel fortunate to be able to do all these things.
Ginnie Hart: We decided someone must have lost this after New Year's and someone else hung it up in the tree. It sure was colorful. smile

And yes, we're both lucky to see everyone again...some for the first time for me! It should be fun. A great memory, inderdaad.

Yes, England may be a very lovely destination for a honeymoon destination! Stratford and the Cotswolds around may be a toppertje (I was there many years ago and saw Shakespeare's "Tempest" in the famous theatre- with an heavenly- airy Ariel I'll never never be forgetting!)! (I'm sorry that I cannot meet you! I'll be visiting England's garden from 1st-9th May (incl. Salisbury and Oxford)- and on Saturday, 10th April is my birthday!)
Ginnie Hart: I do have it on my calendar, Philine, that April 10 is your birthday. I'm quite sure your name will come up more than once that day! Too bad you can't be there with us.

While you are there, ask the other musketeer for the route down south tongue

Sorry, I can't make it - prior commitments in a neighbouring country.
Ginnie Hart: It wouldn't surprise me if one day we meet up with you here in Holland, Louis! Isn't your wife due back to see relatives any time soon???

now wouldn't that be nice if i could fly to england to meet you guys, but alas, it's not in the money cards smile nice invitation pic tho, ps i have nooo idea what the flowers are on my page lol
Ginnie Hart: Too bad we can't win the lottery and get tickets to everyone who needs them...including ourselves! grin One day we'll have to meet up in Canada, of course, but which end?? HA!

They're azaleas, trust me.
Excellent I may be able to meet you all too!
Ginnie Hart: That would be fabulous, Nigel. We sure do hope so.
wonderful idea Ginnnie a dip in the culture and history of William Shakespeare
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Fabrizio. Can't think of a better place! smile

Thanks, Ginnie; Chris has already alerted me to this. Alas I've got something else on and cannot get out of it so I'm afraid I won't be able to make it. A lovely image to illustrate the thought.
Ginnie Hart: Too too bad, Alan. It would have been wonderful to meet you! Maybe next time. I'm sure we'll go back every year?
I look forward to meeting you Ginnie. Stratford is good. Someone once lived there who wrote stuff.
Ginnie Hart: I can hardly wait, Chad. It will finally happen!
What a nice idea...
Ginnie Hart: We think so, too, Chantal! smile
There is a nice little theatre in Stratford where they do plays by this bloke who lived in Elizabethan times.
Ginnie Hart: Hmmm. Wonder what will be playing there that day, Bill??

We stayed then in the Hotel Shakespeare in Stratford (Chapel Street)- wonderful!- very old English! - but I'm afraid it is now too expensive, and a fine B&B home is very good, too!
Ginnie Hart: Awww. I bet it will be a fabulous town for a meet-up. Philine. I can just see it now! smile

15 miles away from us Ginnie - we will do our best. I see you have been letting your hair down!
Ginnie Hart: 15 miles! We should all be so lucky, Mike. We sure do hope to see you both that day...when we can all let our hair down! smile

Oh, Ginnie & Astrid: Skakespeare Festival in Stratford: http://www.stratfordfestival.ca/BoxOffice/calendar.aspx?id=85 (Kiss me, Kate, with one of the W. J. Chr. T. Phillipsas lover Fred; 'Peter Pan' with A. Ch. S. C. Doveton in the main role; on 23 rd April W. Shakespeare's birthday will be celebrated!)!
Ginnie Hart: Surely there will be something we can see, Philine...or make up our own version of whatever with the people who gather! grin
Who knows? May be Ginnie.
A beautiful invitation card.
Ginnie Hart: It would be great to meet you, Richard! I hope you can make it. Thanks.
Ginnie, your invitation picture is very original; never would have guessed those were azaleas.

I know your meet-up in Stratford will be a huge success. What a great idea!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, LOL, Beverly. No azaleas in this image...but in Elaine's (which I was responding to in my reply to her comment). I do expect we'll have a great time in Statford. Too bad you can't be there!?
This sounds exciting Ginnie, I shall have to confer with Steve and hopefully make it!smile
Ginnie Hart: Ohhhh, do try to make it, Linda. That would be so fun!!

Aaah..how I wish we could all be there!! Sounds like a fun time!! And - what a beautiful image!!!
Ginnie Hart: It'll be fun, Marcie. We did it once outside London back in 2007 and there were 19 of us who came. It was a great meet-up. This time there will be a whole new batch of people! Too bad you can't be there to join us.....
I fly home to Canada on April 4th for a month, Ginnie, but I will be there with you in spirit. Thanks for the invite which is beautifully presented.
Ginnie Hart: Priorities are priorities, Paul, and we understand. But we sure will miss you! Have fun.

Ginnie Hart: HA! Well, not that we expected the Canadian bunch to come, though it would have been fun, Margie! smile
As you know it is on our calendar Ginnie, I will consult with the boss-lady now I know more, she does the driving these days.
Ginnie Hart: It will be fabulous to meet you both, Brian! Be there or be square. smile
April 10th...Hopefully we can make it Ginnie.I would love to meet you all.
Your picture makes it look very inviting.
Ginnie Hart: That would be wonderful, Ron. I do hope we can meet you both.
sounds like it will be a fun time! enjoy yourselves smile
Ginnie Hart: Too bad everyone can't come, Charles! Thanks.
It would be grand to be there but just can't do it.

Have a wonderful time.
Ginnie Hart: We'll miss you, Michael. Maybe one year we'll all meet up in Canada...but which side?!?!

jolie composition.
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Marie.
A great idea for an image and beautifully photographed.

Did you know that there's a cafe called "Circle of Friends" in an Irish village called Inistioge? It was used in the film, of the book, of the same name, by Maeve Binchy.

I could probably just about make it there. But have a lovely honeymoon.
Ginnie Hart: I would enjoy visiting a café with that name, George, watching that movie and reading the book! Ireland is a gorgeous country. I would like to go back again! Thanks.

Oh how I wish I could join you but I will be with you via your beautiful photos and eloquent words. Thanks for sharing it all and for the beautiful photo invitation.
Ginnie Hart: You're a sweetheart, Linda. One day we'll maybe have a more one-on-one meet-up with you, either here or in the States. That would be nice! smile

Makes me wish I lived in the UK, Ginnie! Sounds like fun.
Ginnie Hart: I know it will be fun, Toni. The UK is where Shutterchance is headquartered, so many of our virtual friends live there. Some we have already met! Maybe one day we'll meet YOU in the States...or here in Holland. You never know!

You know both me and Diane would have loved to meet both of you and share this adventure of a lifetime with you!

Happy travel - enjoy and have fun - and keep us posted!
Ginnie Hart: One day we'll make it to Oslo, Renny, but that will be an entirely different meet-up! I can hardly wait to meet you and Diane, Tor and Anna!
Wonderful image Ginnie - well seen
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Pamela. Will we get to see you????
Great Shot Ginnie. I can't think of a better way to invite us. Will definitely try and be there smile

Gorgeous Ginnie! Wish I could be there...and who knows?

Aww mehn how did I miss this! I would so be there if I was in the UK!!!
Ginnie Hart: I know you would be there, Yinks. It will be a blast. Thanks for seeing this now. Better late than never!
Oh! Ginnie, I'm glad to read this news. All the best for this new stage of both. "It's a pity" that you have decided to travel to the UK because I find it impossible to accompany you but I hope that on another occasion you traveling to Barcelona and you can meet again! Best wishes again
Ginnie Hart: Astrid has never been to Barcelona, José Angel, but I would love to show it to her one day. So you never know!!! If we plan a trip, you'll be the first to know. Muchas gracias.
