A Very Special Anniversary
Hi girls welcome to my little corner of cyberspace. I am so pleased that you have found a minute to drop in on me. I hope you enjoy your visit.
I am afraid that I have been a very poor blogger again for a few days but I have just not had the "oomph" lately. However while I was out of commission and not going near my craftroom hubby took the opportunity to do something I have been dreaming of for ages. When he did out the small bedroom as a new craftroom for me some months ago he left the old carpet - a horrible green thing that I have never liked. Well it has gone to be replaced by some beautiful maple wood flooring. It's gorgeous and makes the room so light. Poor thing rediscovered muscles he had forgotten he had.
This card was made for a very special couple celebrating a landmark anniversary. William's oldest sister and husband had their Golden Wedding Anniversary yesterday. They are so devoted to each other and have been so close to us over the years. I am entering this card into two challenges. Firstly Moving Along With The Times where the theme is "Things with Wings" and secondly Delightful Challenges where the theme is "Distressing/Vintage" - I have gone for the vintage look.
I have used gold mirra card and cream bazzil as mounts and background. The main panel is a patterned gold mirra card. The hearts are die cut and the pattern on them is created by using a swirl stamp with versafine and heat embossing with gold embossing powder. The butterflies are cut using a Martha Stewart punch. The ribbons are from my stash and the lettering is created on MS Word.
As always any comments you might have time to leave will be so much appreciated. I value all you say about my cards. Have a great day, enjoy your crafting and above all stay safe and healthy.
