Anniversary Part One xxx

Good Morning lovelies or should that be nearly afternoon?? The morning has just flown in, that's what happens when your doing the ironing I guess!!

So I'm a bad blogger, I said i would be back yesterday but with trying to finish these then post them I had no time before the Marches began! Had all the family here but sadly I never got to walk round due to the dreadful weather! Did paint my Mother-in-Laws toes for Thursday while we waited on it to began tho hee!!

So on to the card. As you can see its "Part One", I've got the second part to bring you once I've uploaded the pics! So its my wee Mummy and her lovely Partner Scott's 3rd Wedding Anniversary on the 12th and both asked me to make a card for the other hee! I thought it was lovely that they both think I can do a card "GOOD" enough for them, so here's my Mums for Scott.


I used some basic orange card stock form my stash and used the yummy Hampstead Papers from Papermaina and also the stamps to add some "paisley patterns". I used some brown ink to give the papers a wee aged look, added my fave letter stickers, punched out flowers and added mulberry flowers as the centres. Everything else is from stash.


Hope you like the deep orange colours with browns and golds? Sort of reminds me of those gorjuss summer nights we sometimes get, especially on holiday hee!! The wee pic is from their Wedding in Cyprus, gorjuss she was my wee Mummy!!

Mel, These are both gorgeous. You must have spent ages on them. They do look a lovely happy couple and I would have to say that love for an older person (I am 50)is very special. I re-met my school boyf after 25 yrs and we married in 1999 - life has never been so good. I am not saying your Mum is old by the way! Happy Anniv to them both! Sheila:)X
