Happy Anniversary #3

Hi folks.. Last Anniversary card for now!... Today is the 1st Wedding Anniversary of one of my besties...
You may recall last year that I was "one of" their Best Men at their wedding!! How the year has flown!! And today, they celebrate their first wedding Anniversary..

Traditionally, this is celebrated with Paper.. And in the modern fraternity it is celebrated with clocks... So, as I use paper pretty much every day of my life that was easy to incorporate into their Anniversary card.. Trying to keep up with modern tradition was the tricky part, but hopefully I have captured both traditions in this project!! However, I still may have to explain the thought behind the process though!! Happy Anniversary Mr & Mrs C.. Hope you enjoy your day..
See you soon. Andy.

Happy Anniversary #2

Hi Folks.. Told you they come thick and fast!! Yesterday was Joanne & Paul's Anniversary.. And today is Mum & Dad's 44th Wedding Anniversary.. Now, apparently, the theme for a 44th Wedding Anniversary is... Gourmet or Groceries!! So that's a trip to Waitrose then!!
I was hoping yesterday that inspiration would hit me to get their card done, but I was distracted with my Melt Pot all day and got nothing done, apart from a bit of "play time".. Fortunately I was able to go to my stand by pile of cards,

and this is the one I have chosen for them! Not it's intended use, but I think it fits the bill!!!
Thanks for checking us out. See you soon.

Making hay cards while the sun shines...

Hi Folks... Today is the Birthday of one of my bestie's.. She joins the majority of our friends in the 40's Club!! Told her it would come round quickly and bite her on the rump!!!

She's a bit of a purple freak, so this is the card I made for her... It's quite subtle it it's make up (not like the recipient at all!) but works for the occasion I hope... I made several samples before I got onto this one, but they kept on heading in a Wedding'ie, Anniversary direction, which isn't a problem as I have four Anniversary cards to make before the weekend! eekk..

But once I got this design down I found a couple of different colour ways to try it out on also..

Pretty happy with the results of them, on the pile (in the shop window) they go...
Thanks for checking us out, enjoy the sunshine this week if you have it!!
