I thought I'd share my sister and brother-in-law's anniversary card with you today. They have been married forever, well since I was 7 so it feels like forever and she was my mother's understudy when I was little. If you ask her she'll tell you to this day she has a bad back from carrying me everywhere! Sorry Rosalyn and thanks sis!
I printed out the digital stamp from a great freebie site. I haven't had time to check out the rest of their pages - there's quite a lot. I just saw the Precious Moments and instantly thought of my big sis, she loves them. I decided I was gonna colour it in with my paints so I traced it onto cartridge paper (didn't want to take the chance of the ink running) and had a fun afternoon colouring in. Ain't crafting great - you can revert to your childhood and noone complains!
I then mounted it onto cardstock - mainly cos the water crinkled it a bit and it was a bit flimsy.
Whilst looking for my paints I came across a huge stack of metallic board and parchment card (I've had them so long I forgot they were there) so I used a bit of peach metallic card next - I thought it looked a bit like a beach.
It still needed something - so out came the laptop and the usual trawl through some trusty sites and I found the blue BG strip with shells here. I love this site.
I decided that I didn't want to put the sentiment on the outside (didn't have enough space - note to self "buy bigger card stock next time") so it went on the inside. I can never think what to write on the inside of a card so - problem solved. In-The-Beach-Hut recommended Wordle (please take the time to check out her blog - she's so funny and her makes are gorgeous). So I typed in my sis and BIL's names, their anniversary date, and some suitable romantic words and hey presto a personalised sentiment!
Thanks for stopping by.
