It's my 18th Wedding Anniversary!

Hi all,

It's taken me since Thursday to get back in the swing of things. It was my 18th wedding anniversary - 18 years wow!! I went to get started in my dining come craft room and saw a plastic bag on the table, I thought it was my rubbish bag but it was heavy - some lovely chocs and great border stamps from my special man - how sweet!  Very crafty! I had a lovely crafty day though, I only made one card but at least I achieved something and I was having a nice play with my stamps.  I'm really pleased with how it has turned out, it took a few goes to get the bird in the cage - needed a few practice runs but isn't that part of the fun of crafting. Without further ado here it is:

2 pics as I don't know which I prefer.  The black background I think!

I used: Craftwork cards shaped card, Kanban stamps used on the background paper, sentiment and birdcage as well as the flowers. die cut flowers, polka dot ribbon & gems.


Creative craft challenge 2 - fancy edges
Tuesday taggers - unusual shaped card
Truly scrumptious challenge 69 - bingo time - gems,flowers, die cut flower shape.
2 sisters challenge 64 - ribbon
Allsorts challenge week 128 - anything but square

Have a nice night.

Love Debs x
