24 Years - WOW!!!

It was our 24th Wedding Anniversary yesterday and here is the card I made for my DH.

It was actually the second card I made, as he contacts the lovely Abby to make my cards and knowing what stamp sets she has, I knew there was a pretty good chance that my first choice of card would have the same images - and it did!!!  So I just had to go and make another card (Oooh dear...).

I bought the template for the card blank from the recent papercraft show at Harrogate and thought it was the perfect chance to play with it.

The Designer Series Paper is from the Sweet Pea paper stack and the reason I chose it is that Ian has recently repainted his motorbike - fluourescent green with airbrushed bubbles - and the paper reminds me of the bubbles, but on a smaller scale.  I will have to get some pics and post them here soon!

Stamp sets - Wonderful Words, Baroque Motifs, Simply Said & Love you Much
Cardstock - Real Red, Green Galore, Whisper White
Ink - Real Red
Accessories - Heart Punch, Heart to Heart Punch, Whisper White Taffeta Ribbon, Scalloped Border

Heres a photo of the cards Abby made (Ian couldn't decide which one I would like so he gave me both!!).  Abby is only 14 and has been making cards for about 9 months - she is such a talented young lady.

Arnt they gorgeous!!! I love what she has done with the shadow effect on the 'Wife' sentiment.

Thanks for the cards Abby!



  1. Happy belated anniversary the cards are lovely and well done to Abby...

  2. Happy Anniversary to you and Ian! Wow - silver next year, can you believe it? How time flies. And how gorgeous are those cards, both yours and Abby's.
