Happy Ever After!
Hi everyone, I made this card today for my son and daughter-in-law's 5th wedding anniversary next month, I hope they like it.
I can't really believe that it's been that long since their 'big day'......until I look at the wedding photos that is. I certainly look a lot younger in those, all I can say is......it's obviously been a stressful 5 years for me LOL!
I used 'Vintage Photo' distress ink around the edges of the nestie and then popped some Cosmic Shimmer 'Gold Twinkles' on top (I love the smell of this even more than the smell of my Promarkers, oh dear!)
I made the flowers myself using this fabulous tutorial, then doused them liberally with glimmer mist and glamour dust. They look really pretty in real life, unfortunately, my scanner didn't want to show you.
This card seems to fit the following 3 challenges:
Ooh-la-la Creations #49 - 'Anything Goes'
Stampin' for the Weekend - 'Monochromatic'
Crafty Calendar Challenge #6 - 'Flower Power'
* Image - Charmed Cards & Crafts 'Mikey & Madison'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Hot Off The Press and stash
* Punch - MS 'Valentine Lace'
* Everything else from my stash
I'm sorry I haven't been to visit you for a while, but I've been in a bit of a dark place lately, mainly because reality has now set in about losing my Mum and I miss her so much.
In view of this I'm going to have a bit of a break for a while. I'll still be joining in with my fortnightly DT challenges for both Sketch & Stash and Crafty Ann's, but other than that my posts may not be as regular as normal.
For some time now I've had a 'to do' list full of lots of different crafting techniques and ideas that I want to try, unfortunately, I never seem to find time to do them.
The theory is that I'll just 'play' and if I end up with something that I like, I'll see if it fits any challenges and if it does, great (if not, I'll probably post it anyway!)
Thanks to all my sweet friends who have continued to visit me and leave such lovely comments, they have meant so much to me. I'll be coming to visit you all again very soon.
