50 years together!


Ive been asked to make a special card for a special couple who are celebrating their Golden Wedding anniversary so my usual came out to play again!  Pink Petticoat's Little Swirls in Sand and Lord Tim Holt's Tattered Florals with a little sprinkling or three of golden seed beads too!

Have I ever mentioned that I do love Easel cards!  Honest, I do! 
I think they make a simple card look extra special!
And a matching box does the trick also I hope!  (I have made another bloom for the top of the box but it wasnt dry when I took the photo so it's not on it yet!)

A number of weeks back I was thinking that Id soon be parting with my dies and then Laura and I cleared and cleaned this craft room and I lost 2 of my Bigz dies, the Tattered Florals above and a new flower die so knowing I had this to make I had to go and buy another!  Grrr!  That'll teach me!

I made these 2 little A6 cards with the leftovers; a bit like a Mondays Cottage Pie after the Sunday Roast!

Id like to enter this into the following challenge:

Right, Im off to make more mess at my desk!
Enjoy your weekend everyone and thanks for calling in!
