20th wedding card


Well he's survived being married to me for 20 years next week, through sickness & health were his vows
Bless him, if only he'd known what was coming he would have run a mile before the big day

We're going to try to get away on our own for a couple of days next week but it's a nightmare trying to work it around the kids, Ffion has exams & Sions working til late as he can't get home without a lift

 
 
Absolutely hated making this card at first & nearly gave up on it, couldn't get the stamp to line up with the die so had to get it swopped when I saw Chloe at Port Sunlight on Saturday
 
Everything is white & silver, very shiny although it looks black, just need to make a box for it now as the butterflies are spreading their wings & it's a large 8x8 card which I normally stay away from making 

Can put this up early as hubby doesn't look at my blog

Made using white pearlescent card
Detail silver embossing powder
Chloes Butterfly heart stamp & die
Chloes Beaded flower border which I can see being used a lot
Silver mirror card & a few peel offs to finish

Golden wedding card


I made this last month for my Mum & Dad's Golden wedding anniversary
It opened into a folded card which was a nightmare to photograph, the colours are much better in real life but it was too wet to take the photos outside


 


The layers were all either embossed or had papers attached so the card took an age to make but I was happy with it in the end

Thank you Lisa @ Ella's Designs for the card idea as we made a similar one in a workshop previously

Hope you are having a nicer day than us today as it is very cold & dull here, tons to do but only managed the ironing & a power nap so far today so nothing really constructive done but hey ho, always tomorrow

Hugs

60th card for neighbour


Last minute.com

Just found out that my neighbour is 60 tomorrow so have had to scrabble a card together this afternoon

 
 
I made this using a Polkadoodles Twiggy & Toots CD which I am ashamed to say has been in it's wrapper for a few months but will now be thoroughly looked at when I have chance
The roses were rescued from a flower box I have had for eons but never seems to go down
Leafy bits were snipped away from a large Tattered Lace die
Lace has been hidden away in a box for eons too but is starting to surface in my cards
It's not me without a sprinkling of glitter
