Ruby Anniversary No.2

As promised (if a little late) here is another of the ruby anniversary cards I made for my friend Sue who's anniversary is on Sunday.

The idea of the two coloured heart is not mine - I found it on a google search ages ago and jotted in my book of things I might use one day! Glad I did because I think it's really effective.

Thanks for looking.

Ruby Anniversary

A work colleague will have been married 40 years on Sunday! I've had a few anniversary cards to make recently where the couples have married forever!!! Anyway, my friend Angela asked me to make a card for Sue (who's anniversary it is) and this is what I made. I made a similar card for my husband for one of our anniversaries a while back but I put bought flowers on it. These, I have made myself - soooo easy but very cute and I added a teeny self adhesive pearl so finish them off.

This card is suitable for lots of occasions simply by changing the colour scheme and the sentiment!

I made a card for Sue from myself and will post that tomorrow so be sure and pop back.

Thanks for looking.

Diamond Anniversary

My friends parents have been married for 60 years!!!! I was asked to make 3 cards for my friend and her sisters to give to their parents to celebrate the occasion and this is what I came up with.

I can't claim all these layouts as my own cos when I see one I like on the 'net I jot a sketch down and use it when the occasion seems right. So thank you to whoever sketched the layout for cards one and two!!

My friend loved the cards and hopefully her parents will too.

Thanks for looking

Hersheys Bags

I promised you some pics of a project that I have been working on and here they are!

I have posted pics of these teeny bags before which hold a single Hersheys nugget (which are gorgeous little chunks of chocoloate) but this time I wanted to make a larger bag to hold 6 of the little bags and this is what I came up with.

The bigger bag is the same design as the teeny ones, I just simply made it bigger! I have added a teeny velcro square as a closure for the big bag too.

Thanks for looking.

45th Anniversary

A friend of mine has a friend whose parents are celebrating their 45th .... yes 45th!! wedding anniversary on saturday. 45 years is Sapphire so I went with the blue theme for the card.

I put glossy accents on this gorgeous butterfly before layering it up. This card is based around one I saw on Jellys blog a while ago - hope you don't mind V?

My friend really liked it and I'm hoping her friend will too!

Thanks for looking.

New Home

Our lovely neighbour Lyn has moved on so we have new neighbours! I have made two of this card so I can send one to Lyn and give one to the new couple to welcome them to our Close.

I hope they all like it and soon settle into their new homes.

I have spent a few hours in my room of craft today and have a lovely project to show you soon (just need some velcro dots to finish it off) so please pop back and hopefully I will have it posted within a few days.

My mum is coming out of hospital tomorrow and me n hubby are fetching her so a long trip ahead. Nottingham to Hull then over to Withern (Lincs) then home again later! It will be worth it though to see mum. Just glad she's on the mend :)
