8th Wedding Anniversary

Morning all,

Today is my 8th wedding anniversary which I believe is bronze or pottery in traditional terms and either lace or linen in modern terms. I can't believe where the last 8 years have gone, they have passed so quickly which I guess is a good sign! Steven and I have actually been together 14 years tomorrow which again seems like only yesterday! It is also my friend Carol's birthday tomorrow and she was the one who got us together. A good way to always remember her birthday, not that I'd ever forget anyway!

Here is the card I made for Steven:

I used papers which I bought at the Artstamps show in Edinburgh recently and coloured the Rachelle Miller image which I have had for yonks with my copics. I'm slowly getting used to using these! The red raffia is from Tescos which I bought at Christmas time but didn't use on any cards! The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and the dew drops are from Kirsty Wiseman's shop. I quite like the way this has turned out!

This is the card I made for Carol's birthday:

Carol loves handbags and so I thought that this would be a great choice for her and also was a nice change for me to make a card which didn't involve using images. It was so quick and easy to make too. All of the materials used are from Craftwork Cards. I bought a goody bag which cost me £10 at Easter time which was fantastic value for money and was crammed full of lots of goodies. The sentiment included wasn't included but I also bought these from Craftwork Cards.

Well, today I am going to try and get my creative juices flowing and do some scrapping as I haven't done any for a long time. I have so many photos to use and a mountain of papers to use as I keep buying thinking that'll be great for ...... but never get around to doing anything due to lack of time. I'm also going to try and pluck up some courage to use my cuttlebug! We'll see how I get on! :o)
