Anniversary Cards

October is a month for anniversaries - I have 4 including my own. :-) I have 2 lots of friends celebrating their anniversaries as well as my eldest son and his wife. I have already shown you the card I made for my hubby. 

Today I am showing you the card I made for some very good friends of mine who celebrated their anniversary on Monday. I have used an image from the Hunkydory Little Book of Wrinklies. I love these images. I love the little books but my only complaint is I wish that Hunkydory would do square ones :-) 


Paul the hubby of the couple asked if I would make his wife a card from him and here is what I did. Again I used the Wrinklies little book but this time I die cut it using circle and scalloped circle dies. The greeting was made up of several stamps that I had which I put together.

Happy Birthday to Me

So 2nd October was my birthday and as usual I received some lovely cards from my crafty friends. This year I forgot to post them earlier but here they are. They are all lovely don't you agree.? :-)





The little hand written card was from my 9 year old niece in France. The stickers are smelly ones that smell of lollies and chips!! :-)

Happy Anniversary

Been a bit quiet recently but that's cause I have been quite busy and haven't got anything new to show you. I have had a birthday and I had some lovely handmade cards which I will show you once I get round to photographing them. 

I did go on a Crafting Day on Saturday with Julie Hickey from Craftwork Cards which was a lot of fun. Again I have a couple to finish but once I have I will photograph them and blog them.

However I do have my hubby' anniversary card I made him to show you which I nearly forgot to do!!

For his card I used an image of James the Bear from Lily of the Valley. The Happy Anniversary was cut from a die, can't remember who made it though. Was really pleased with how this turned out.
