Clean & Simple Silver Anniversary Card and and an up-coming Surprise



Hello my lovelies.  I know, I've been gone for agessssss.  But my brother was married on the 20th July and I was making everything for it, from Invitations to place cards.  I'll be showing you everything soon.....silly me forgot to take photos of everything!! DOH!

Anyway....my wee Mammy and Daddy are married 25 years today...WOOWHOO!  Congratulations to them both.  You are both incredible parents...obviously.....look at me!  Here is the sad and sorry card I've made you, lol.  Sorry!  But of all the things you could have asked for.......you asked for a handmade  card from me.....even though I'm rubbish at making them, lol.  Have a fabulous day you two love birds.

Here it is......

Its clean and very simple.......just the way I like it.  Simple matting and layering with white linen embossed stripes.

The sentiment is matted and layered, stamped with congratulations and 2 wee hearts on either side.

Opps.....this isn't a terribly straight photograph, sorry.  I added this wee sentiment on the inside.  And taadaa!  Simple wee card.
Just a quick announcement...keep your eyes out on my blog because I have a few things coming up.  Maybe a giveaway and maybe some freebies up for grabs....yes I said FREEBIES!  Ive been doing out the old craft room and I am selling a few bits on ebay soon (I'll let you know when).....BUT - I do have some things that I want to give to whoever wants them....you just need to pay the postage.  I will do an official post on it to give you a heads up of when its all happening.

    1. Awww thank you so much for dropping by my blog. I'm glad you enjoyed my bookbinding tutorials. I have other book tutorials that are a little quicker to make too, plus they aren't 7 videos long either, lol. I can waffle on a bit, lol. Thanks again for popping over. Lee x

    1. Hi Bibiana, thanks for visiting my blog. I'm not usually a card maker.....in fact I tend to run for the hills when someone suggests I make one. But since it was a special request from my parents (they are obviously glutens for punishment, lol), I had to come out from my hiding place and make them this card, lol. My respect to all card makers, because I just can't master them, lol. Lee x
