Creative Card Crew & Award

Hi girls. Welcome to my wee blog. It's fantastic to have you visiting - I just hope you find something here to inspire you or maybe even just bring a smile.
This card today is very special. When I first started blogging one of the first visitors I had was Tracy over at Country Mouse. She has been a very faithful friend and I don't think she has missed commenting on any of my cards. Well today is her 15th Wedding Anniversary and hopefully the postman will be delivering this card to her this morning. Congratulations Tracy and John - have a great day just for the two of you. God bless.
I am entering this card into the Creative Card Crew challenge where the theme is "Celebrations". This is the first time I have tried this challenge so it will be interesting to see how this card goes down. I inked up Penny Black's "Long Stem Cuties" and coloured them with my Copics. I used Bazzil card as a base mount for everything. Unfortunately I don't know the name of the paper but I thought is sat well in this card. The flowers are homemade and everything else is from my stash.
I hope you like this card and would love to read any comments you have time to leave for me. Thank you for your time and your encouragement.


I have been given this award by Lisa Jane over at Mess2Magic. I am really pleased with this since we found each other in blogland fairly recently and have become great blogging friends. Why not pop over and have a look at her creations - you will not be disappointed I can promise you.

I have decide to pass this on to:

Teri and

I trust you will all have a great day and keep safe in whatever you do.


  1. Wow - a stunning card - they will love it over at creative card crew. I love that background paper - the colours are so striking and you have managed to pull the colour through the card so well with the flowers and the ribbon.
    The image is so adorable and your friend and her husband will be thrilled when they see it.
    I wish them a Very Happy Anniversary!
